Trusting a big foot in my mouth

So, recently I wrote a blog about how I rarely get mad, because I’ve figured out how to be so generous and stuff.

But this week I got all kinds of mad.

At all sorts of stupid things. I found myself getting mad at traffic, and at the sun in my eyes, and getting jealous of friends.

So I had basically totally put my foot in my mouth.

And I’ve been thinking and praying about how to solve that. I think when I get mad, the reason is usually because something is getting in the way of something I feel the need to achieve. But how to solve that? Who knows.

Every now and then words pop into my head, kind of out of nowhere, and I wonder if that is God.

Well, today when I was driving home, wondering why I was so peeved at getting a text because it took me away from my driving, I heard the word,

“TRUST”

And I remembered that TRUST really does solve a multitude of problems. If I trust that God will work everything out for my good, I do not need to rage at anything getting in my way. Because his ways are bigger than mine and he is working them in me until their completion.
