“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
A few days ago I was overcome with anger and frustration of things going on around me. This led me to use my anger in a sinful manner. My emotions got the best of me that day. I turned to God and asked for his forgiveness. I asked him to help me to improve my character when anger seems to get the best of me. Yesterday while I was driving a man cut me off when I had the right away. He then proceeded to give me a jester which would of normally caused anger to arise in me. By God’s grace I then prayed for this man’s soul and that he would come to know God and be able to release his anger to God, and for him to be healed. Then as I proceeded down the highway home a truck passed me and a rock hit my knewly replaced windshield of my car. The grace God gave me kept me from using anger in an ungodly way.
Thank you for the graces you give us. Thank you for helping me to grow and learn from my mistakes. I am sorry when I do things that lead me to sin, and I need you to help me back up when I fall. Help us all Lord to be able to do our best and learn from our mistakes. Amen.
