Its 7am. You awaken to a text from your child’s father that reads: “I cant come to pick up my son this weekend.” He gives no explanation. You are so mad now because that was your chance to get a break and have some “me time.” You start your day off with this situation being your fuel. You post an aggressive Facebook status stating how “some men ain’t nothing.” You dwell on this for almost the rest of the day.
Lets take a few steps back…
What if you awaken to the text, get a little angry, but afterwards go and spend some time with God in prayer and meditate on all the good things He has done in your life. Allow Him to take care of your problems. 1 Peter 5:7 says “Casting all your cares on Him, for He cares for you.” Doing this can help you avoid letting your problems consume you and your day. You can be filled with peace and joy.
Now how about adding this payer and meditation as your daily routine. Get in a quiet place alone without distraction and focus on the goodness of the Lord and allow your spirit to be lifted. You could go throughout the day uplifting others instead of worrying about your life and your problems. The more you do this the more “unbothered” you will become by things that usually irritates you. May God bless you on this new journey!
