But, life must go on. This is how I need to exhibit self-control in front of people, especially at work.
While I’m struggling with these, I struggle with God.
In your anger, do not sin. Let go, let God.
These rage, these sense of injustice, these wanting to burst into tears in public, these loneliness of not knowing who to talk to, who can I trust not to judge? And this thought of I should first deal with this with God, and not run to other people. But, I’m having trouble keeping calm and acting as normal as possible. It’s like this darkness trying to fill up the white space, and it feels good to let it be. Yet, I know I must stand guard and not let the Devil have a foothold of my weakness.
Good sense makes a man restrain his anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression or an offense’ (v.11, AMP).
Lord, forgive me when I am too easily offended. Thank you that, through the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, you overlook my offences. Help me through that same power to overlook the offences of others.
Lord, I pray today that I would be ‘like the sun when it rises in its strength’. May I bring light in a dark world; may I show people the way. Help me to bring warmth and energy, and to be strong, bold and fearless as the sun.
