Does attitude, judgmental criticism, hurling words take you on a roller coaster ride, only to leave you tumbled and grumbled, or ready to fight and argue to the death? Or …. worse yet: do you allow those emotional attacks assault you? When done wrong, or someone speaks ill about you, do you just harbor it and think about it and wonder, and talk about it then cry and want to just yell or get even? IF “they” only knew all that you have been through, they wouldn’t talk about you so.
I know it’s happened to me. But He is teaching me that holding onto these things, whether I caused the situation, or someone else did, brings on stress to my mind and body, to only steal my joy.
- Jesus is the only one I ever need
- Get control of the stress before the stress gets a hold of me
- Relax and sit at the feet of Jesus
- Ask God for the peace I need
