Ever have one of those days where things just aren’t going your way? I recently had one of those, and then you know what happened? God gave me an opportunity to change my mindset and attitude!! I was organizing some things in my room, and as I moved my 3 ring hole punch, the little white circles exploded everywhere! Okay, not even everywhere…but it was just one of those days where I had the mindset “if just one other bad thing happens, I’m going to explode!”
At my wits end, I actually started to laugh! I reached a breaking point, and instead of breaking down, I laughed off all that tension and frustration from the day. Lately, I’ve had some things in my life that are simply out of my hands to change, and that has been very frustrating at moments.
God actually will allow this frustration to build up at times so we reach a breaking point. Sometimes, that breaking point can be very painful, filled with tears of anger and not understanding why things are the way they are. However, I love it when Daddy God just throws something your way to help you lighten up, laugh, and not take yourself so seriously. Life IS challenging and hard, but we always have a choice of how we will respond to what comes our way! Thankfully, we have a God who sympathizes with us in our weaknesses and will give us opportunities to readjust our attitude and perspective. So take heart! Know your Father sees, knows, and cares. Let go a little and just laugh!
