Hiccups in Our Day

Thank God that He controls and allows every detail of our lives. Nothing happens without His knowledge and approval. That’s amazing! But all of us have things that “change” that we didn’t expect for the day. Sometimes these “little changes” in our day are irritations. Each day has its obstacles, so we have to decide whether we get upset about these little “hiccups” in our day or not.

Hopefully we can roll with it, but there are times when we get annoyed. Hopefully we can rest in the knowledge that God is in control and we can rely in Him, like when we get stuck in traffic. We can grumble about the traffic or we can remember that God knows our deadlines and maybe He wants to slow us down. Maybe we could pray instead of being impatient or complain.

We can choose to let these obstacles upset us or we can rest in the knowledge that God is in control. We can get upset about the frustrating traffic that is keeping us from getting somewhere on time or we can remember that God knows about our deadlines and view the time sitting in traffic as an opportunity to pray. We can complain or we can rejoice. But we can’t do both.

“There are many plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s plan that will stand. – Proverbs 19:21
