I’ve been there in the midst of horrific crisis where people have been injured and hurt and loved ones have passed away and yet during the most horrible things I could imagine, God has given me peace.
It’s actually the little things that get the best of me. During the big times of crisis, that’s when I remember to pray! But it’s those times in traffic when someone cuts me off, or when someone is rude to me at the grocery store, or when someone picks on one of my kids – that’s when I lose my head! No peace in times like that. Ah, but I’m working on that little character flaw.
And I hope you’re working to find more peace in your life. Part of finding peace is to shake off those little things and not let them get the best of you. That’s the part I’m working on. Part of finding peace is looking up when you feel down. I saw a quote once that read, “When life gets too hard to stand, kneel.” That is the truth! When you do that, you’ll be better prepared for the hard times…and quicker to forgive in times when the little, irritating annoyances try to get the best of you. Just a thought.
