Keep It on the Outside.
“If you are angry, don’t sin by nursing your grudge. Don’t let the sun go down with you still angry get over it quickly.” (Ephesians 4:26, TLB)
Joel Osteen has this to say about the topic of today:
It’s okay to feel anger, to feel hurt, to feel disappointment, but it’s not okay to let those feelings stay. You can’t take them in so close to your heart that that’s all you think about, and you wake up the next morning upset, wanting to pay somebody back, not excited about your future.
If you keep thinking about it, reliving the hurt, and dwelling on what they said, you’re allowing it into your heart. You have to guard your heart from that. Keep it on the surface, on the outside don’t bring it into the secret place of your heart.
When you face opposition, trouble, and bad breaks, that’s when it’s easiest to let anger and bitterness in. In those times when you don’t understand it, come back to the place of peace, the place of trust.
Don’t let what’s outside get inside. Your heart needs to stay positive, hopeful, peaceful, and at rest. Keep God on the throne.
Ask him today to help you guard against all the negative things that try to get in. You can not stop the circumstances around you, but you will stop the anger and bitterness from getting in you.
Promise yourself to stress less and smile more. To have strength and courage to venture outside of your comfort zone. To leave your past behind you and appreciate this moment. Most importantly, promise yourself to live a life you truly want to live.
