do you pout or do the next right thing? A little bit of both?
If you pout, how long do you do it for? Does it consist of pouting to yourself or complaining to anyone and everyone around you? How does that make you feel?
Kinda makes me think of a miserable slug leaving a trail of slime behind it. Eww
When things don’t go your way…
how fast are you to accept the change? Are you a fighter when it comes to keeping things the way they are, or do you ignore the changes, or do you embrace the changes?
For me, it’s a matter of if there’s something I can do about it, I do it. If there’s nothing I can do about it, I try not to worry about it. I ask God for peace about it. He is Faithful to give me peace!
We are all little control freaks at times. We have ideas of how things should look, when they should happen, how they should happen. Thank God that He is in control and we aren’t able to manipulate so many parts of our lives. God is always teaching me how to depend on Him more. However, my nature wants to depend on Him less. And that doesn’t lead me to very good places.
I don’t want to be darkened in my understanding. I want to have the wisdom that I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing, going where I’m supposed to be going, and embracing what God has me to be embracing. But isn’t that every challenge?
Isn’t every single challenge that comes along once from the Lord? Not that He causes or creates the issues. Think of it like this:
If God wanted to protect me from someone, He could.
If God wanted to make my business take off running overnight, He could.
If God wanted to me work hard to cater to people no matter what their response is, He would. He would find a way. Because He is God. And if we’re looking… we’ll see God in every one of the details. Every. One.
God is the big boss. And it’s night time. Gotta go to sleep, more later!

One thought on “When things don’t go your way”
I’m not really a pouter. I get over things pretty quick. Life’s too short to waste a whole day.
