Waking Up on the Wrong Side of the Bed

This post is going to be short and sweet. Well, maybe not sweet. I don't feel sweet this morning. I feel contrary, out of sorts, tired and just generally irritable. In the south, we called it waking up on the wrong side of the bed. You always knew a person was out of sorts if someone said that about them.

Have you ever felt like me?

Then you know I have two choices. I can give in to my feelings and be a terror all day. If I do this, I will feel even worse at the end of the day.

I can fight my feelings. Not easy to do but possible. I know that's what God would want me to do.
And, really, it's what I want, too.

God has given me power to resist any sin, the sin of irritability included. Now, all I have to do is claim that power today!

Claiming the power of God in my life even though I did wake up on the wrong side of the bed, Gloria
