Psalm 4:4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah



As the day comes to a close and I am lying in bed, my unsettled mind thinks on the events of recent days gone by. Lately, some of my responses have not been the best. I have been angry and feeling defeated. I have beaten myself up because I allowed my feelings to get the best of me. Frankly, I have failed but there is a turn around. God’s perspective.


Life happens and how we choose to react is up to us. Do we see things favorably or in a way that causes anger, disappointment, rejection and ultimately regret? Each day contains a chance for us to have peace and joy. It is our mantle to remain there. We do not have to be defeated. We do not have to be offended. We do not have to feel jealous, confused, fearful, hurt, or anything that does not reflect love. We can respond with grace. We can see people or circumstances from God’s vantage point. It is all up to us.


Even if we fail and I know I have, we can always dust ourselves off and commit to doing better. God is faithful. He is a very present help. He knows your desire to live by His will. God will do what is necessary and is shaping us up to be like Jesus. It gives me hope that He is there to help me.




The web of my brain intertwined

Tickling my eardrum

Beating my spirit


Determined not to yield

Raging inside like a volcano

Tempered anger


Will not I live?

By the word of God

Yes, I decree


A bold soldier I stand

On a bedrock

Time lapses on


March in step

With the Spirit of the Lord

My closest friend
