The other morning, I admit, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed! I just knew immediately that I was MAD! I couldn’t wait for Nicole to get up so that I’d have somebody to be mad AT.
I could hear the Holy Spirit inside my heart speaking LOVE, telling me to CALM DOWN, and not to ruin her morning, too. (She didn’t wake up in the most delightful mood, either.)
The Holy Spirit is smart! He knows that if Mama ain’t happy…ain’t NOBODY happy!
But, did I listen? NO!!!
We were like two ANGRY storm fronts colliding HEAD-ON! No one needed that! When I left, I didn’t even get a hug. (Go figure!)
Down the road a bit, I felt the Holy Spirit, not condemn, not accuse, but NUDGE me to go back. I went home and told Nicole that I hated the way I left. And I was sorry for living up to my name…CRANKY!
When I did that, it opened the door for reconciliation. To apologize is to enter into the PERFECT WILL of God. (Of course, it would be better NOT to “knock heads”, in the first place.)
But if you do, be the first one to say you’re SORRY, get back into God’s Will, and enjoy your life!
Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!
