[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”] S [/dropcap]o I crashed and burned this morning. Crashed, burned, sizzled, and fried. Ugly. Had I been one to swear I would have sworn a blue streak as I was that frustrated, angry, mad, and the whole works.
All our progress and determination to move forward went up in flames, and it makes me want to grab the devil by the horns and smack him across the face.
About 3 hours later, I calmed down and turned worship music on. I post this song all the time and I keep it in my favorites, because nothing gets me back into perspective better than dwelling on His face. So I’m lying on the pavement (again figuratively) and getting my heart in the right spot. Dwelling on the fact that the only thing that’s really real and makes any sense is Him. Dwelling on the fact that without Him I would be headed toward flames (seriously), and because of Him, I’m not. So this mess of circumstances that we’re in are just circumstances. Yes, they make me frustrated and angry, but if I dwell there, then they rule me. My circumstances don’t rule me. My emotions don’t rule me. And I have the choice to grin and bear it. So I’m going to. I’m choosing to dwell here:
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
