a day of inner conflict…

A day of outer conflict
has led to a day of inner conflict…

Fighting the urge to complain…
and to let others have their way…

Resisting the temptation to give in to irritation…

Being OK… with unexpected errands…
and no quiet in my day…
has been a challenge…

As I write…
I see I’m having trouble loving others today…
as He defines love…

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy,
it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight
in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects,
always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
It’s been a struggle to love today…
Constantly I’ve prayed…
turned to Him… for peace…
for strength… 
to keep my mouth shut…
to be thank-full…
to think of others more than myself…
Yes… it’s been a struggle to love today…
What have you struggle with…?
He’s there to help… to strengthen… to guide…
you just need to recognize your need…
ask…
and receive…
Amen…
