There I sat getting ready to eat breakfast with my family when the phone vibrates…an angry text. Usually, my default reaction would be to respond quickly without a moments hesitation…not today. I whispered a silent prayer and left it there. 

I have come to a place where my peace is more important than someone’s piece of mind. I had a choice to either let it get me mad and ruin my breakfast or I could consider the source and enjoy my French toast {which by the way were delish}. 

I refuse to fight a battle that is not mine. I rely on the Holy Spirit to help me pick and choose wisely. So many times I’ve fallen prey to the trap of someone’s else anger and paid the price, dearly. I am so glad I have a friend, a helper, who guides me into all truth in every situation. Don’t neglect the still small voice. It is always in your best interest to pay attention and be obedient even if it is to…be quiet {ouch}! 

What a friend we have in Jesus all our sorrows and griefs to bear…oh what peace we often forfeit oh what needless pain we bear…all because we did not carry everything to God in prayer. 

“Not by might, nor by power, but my Spirit,” says the Lord. Zechariah 4:6
