Testing for temper

Some of you know that we’ve hit a few bumps in the road around our house.

First we found a mama rat and her brood in our garage.
Several months ago we decided to paint our house and scheduled it for the first of June.
Last week, or whenever—I’ve blocked it out like the events surrounding a car accident–we found a leak under a refrigerator and MOLD.

Now I have workmen swarming all over the inside and outside of my house.
There’s banging and men talking loudly and general chaos.
They’re making me crazy already and today is only the beginning.

I made a little graphic to remind me to look to Jesus.
He was always patient and kind, not irritable or ill-tempered.
He wants me to be like that too.

And I can’t do that without Him.
Jesus told us that all the icky stuff like anger and malice springs from our hearts.
That’s where sin germinates.

Every morning, before the crews get here, I need to have Jesus work on my heart.
I don’t have to react badly and selfishly to inconvenient circumstances.
That’s why I made this graphic.
A little self-exhortation to be sweet instead of sour 😉

We can’t always plan ahead in life. Sometimes we’re faced with sudden and unexpected challenges. When that happens James tells us to ‘count it all joy’ because the testing will strengthen our faith.
I’m gonna be SO STRONG!
