I had a rough afternoon today. I got really upset and angry over really, nothing. I was short with my husband, short with my bosses, and just in an overall crabby mood. It wasn’t fun. I didn’t want to be upset because I knew I was being upset over something seriously petty. I’ve been reading this blog for a while and something the author said in one of her posts really encouraged and reminded me. God intended me for joy. When I’m having a “crusty day” (as she puts it), God did not intend it…I’m just quoting her now, so just read her excerpt below!
“So, I want to encourage you…if you are having a crusty day, just know God did not intend for it, but the thief who hates your guts! He likes it when we’re crusty and gets a kick out of it when we’re impatient with our kids/spouses/friends/strangers because our agendas aren’t being met. Tell him to BACK OFF and then, READ THE BIBLE OUT LOUD!… I call it, “Story Time for satan.” Let me tell you, he stops bugging you immediately because he HATES God’s Word with a passion, but not only that, he HATES it most when you not only read it but you BELIEVE it!

Love it. I think I’ll go read God’s Word out loud now! Be encouraged dear friends!
