I've found that I tend to imagine my day, or specific interactions the way I want or expect to see them happen. This can be dangerous because those false expectations set me up for dissapointment, frustration and sometmes hurt. It's stupid really, but something I struggle with none the less. I've been learning to stop trying to control the details, so I can fully experience what does happen and take it in stride.
I'm currently reading the daily devotional Jesus Calling, and one of the entries this week touched on this topic (so I had to share).
|I'm about a week behind in this book (it's a year long one), but God has allowed each day to bless, challenge or reassure me none-the-less-- more proof that Jesus likes messy people. :)|
