I was browsing in my photo gallery on my phone. I came across a picture of me. When I studied the picture, I was like, “I look so soft in the photo.” Now, I didn’t mean soft as in touch, but soft as in spirit. I realized i looked gentle.
Choose gentleness… Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself. ”
Sometimes I can have an attitude. My mom says, “I am a hot head.” It takes a lot for that to show, but she is correct. I do have a temper when I can get frustrated or angry. It doesn’t last forever. Thank God!!!
What helps me control my attitude???
I like to meditate on the following bible verses:
“But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.”
“to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.”
“A soft answer turns away wrath,
buta harsh word stirs up anger.”
If you have issues dealing with anger or frustration, I pray for you work on your heart and mind. I hope you take the steps of meditating on those three bible verses. The word of God is powerful. He can destroy all evil. God’s word will help your inner beauty shine bright!
