For those of you who spend a lot of time with me, or maybe just a little, you know that I can be feisty and what you see is what you get with me. I think it can be a great thing most the time but sometimes my feistyness (is that a word?) turns into sin. Yesterday I had a terrible day with technology and it seriously makes my head want to explode and to top it off my bracket for March Madness, which really does make me totally insane and why I think they call it “madness” is soooo bad this year. The only reason I fill it out is because it’s how I survive all the basketball in my house for the next two weeks. I don’t even like basketball but it makes me care who wins because I’m so competitive. Another insight into my personality. So anyway, I was convicted in my time with the Lord this morning when I read this:
Most of all, Friends always rejoice in the Lord! I never tire of saying it: Rejoice! Keep your gentle nature so that all people will know what it looks like to walk in His footsteps. Phil. 4:4,5
Alright, alright, so even when I’m losing and the internet makes me want to lose my head I can choose to rejoice and be gentle. It’s really the trivial things in life that get me.
P.S. Last night while we were praying my husband thanked God for my “passion” in life. I’m quite sure he was referring to my feisty side that sometimes gets misdirected. How cute is he?!
