Prayer Devotional: Day 141

Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always. – Psalms 105:4 NIV

Many things can take our minds away from focusing on Jesus. He is the author and finisher of our faith, and we can ask Him to redirect our minds when we react to others, as wellas to non-ideal circumstances.

Today it snowed in Tijeras and Albuquerque, delaying the removal of the old carpet from my home an additional day or two. Although my plan was to get the old carpet out ASAP because it is covered in pet dander that I am allergic to, the weather did not cooperate with that plan. I have to accept whatever comes my way, knowing that God can strengthen me, and He is in control.

While we may have challenges communicating with others, we have to accept that they are going through their own difficulties, and at times may take that out on us. Instead of taking it personally and defaulting to victim mode, we can ask God for strength, and He will guide us to a long-term solution, instead of a band-aid fix. Amen.
