“Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the bosom of fools.” Ecclesiastes 7:9
My office mate have been singing “let it go, let it go” since I came to work this morning until now that work is over. I love the song but to hear only those three words over and over (she hums the rest of the song), annoyed me. Until I realized it may be an angel’s way to get a message across.
My patience is on a limited supply usually on the first week of each month, with all the deadlines and the cramming. God knows i try so hard to be nice. But there’s a lot going on in my life too. The personal stuff, if you know what i mean. And it’s causing my patience meter to do a roller coaster on me. So it’s hard to flash that smile. The way to go for my face now is blank. Like no expression at all. Like i’m on an out-of-body trip to the nearest exit. Like i’m frozen or something.
Finally before the day is over, I get it. Tell that to me again… LEt it go. Let it go. Let it go. And I say, alright! alright! alright!
This is synonymous with sacrifice because I have to part with what I have. Apparently, no one ever lets go of what he doesn’t have. So let me see, what do I have now? I have negative vibes. Worries. Stress. Pain. Insecurity. Sadness. Darn! I didn’t realize how much I have until now. These I don’t really need in my life. So yes, let them go.
It is probably the best way to partake in the suffering of Christ. To let go of our own. and focus on His Cross.
