Blow Up Or Blow It Off....Your Choice

'Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God.' Matthew 5:9

So many fights and arguments could be avoided if people would just learn to not take things so seriously, be patient, and thank God for the good things and overlook the not so good.

Once  I was flying standby as a family member on the airline my son works for. On this day huge ice storms caused the cancellation of many flights into and out of Dallas, a major hub for the airline. Guess where I was changing planes? You got it. Dallas! Needless to say when air travelers plans are messed up either by maintenance issues, crew issues, or weather there are some personalities who it does not sit well with. In Huntsville I was not seeing those frazzled nerves yet as it was still early in the course of the travel day.

Being upset about things out of our control is a waste of time. It is better to go with the flow or as a  friend used to say about issues that upset me, "Blow it off Becky". Very good advice for all sorts of things. Try to display the fruits of the Spirit in all of life. Don't "blow up" but remain in control and make believe Jesus is right there with you. He is you know.

 When the unexpected happens to you do you lose control or do you stay peaceful? Start today to develop the attitude of joy and peace no matter what is going on around you. Others will wonder what's up and may even ask you.

PRAYER: Thank you Lord for mobility to get around and do things. Thank you for the blessing of changed plans because sometimes those are are "God moments" that we do not yet see or understand. Give me peace and joy as I learn to be flexible. In Jesus' name. Amen.
