What to do in a mean mood.

Storm clouds - can be pretty outside, but unsettling when they are roiling in your heart.

This morning I am battling storms. I am in a mean mood.

If I was a cat my tail would be sweeping back and forth, ears back - you get the picture. Mean.

So what to do about myself. Help Lord! on my own the wall cloud is over me and a tornado warning has gone out.

*Dig out the root cause and put it under the blood of Jesus. He can handle it.
Psalm 85:8
I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.

* Deal with the mean thoughts and command them to cease

Psalm 34:14
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Ah, some refreshing coming. In His presence there is peace.

* Rejoice - shouts praises to the King of Kings

Mark 4:39
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

*Let the Lord speak Peace over you. Which means to give up the thing that is warring inside. Give it up that there is room for His peace. Notice the storm was in me, not the thing that irritated me. Once I give it up and He deals with me, I don't have to worry about the irritation. It is in His hands - as long as I leave it there.

I feel better now, skies are clearing over my heart and the Son is shining.

  1. Cool post! I always think of the verse, "Take captive every thought" because when I get miffed, I usually bawl out the offender in my mind over and over again. I have to squelch the conflict in my head before I can deal with the one in my heart.

    See you Tuesday!
