Having a Bad Day?

Some days you are and some days you are the stink bomb.

This helps me a lot and is part of the training God is putting me through regarding enduring trials:

May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light.
Colossians 1:11-12 NRSV

I love the NRSV’s rendition of the part I emphasized. Believers need to think of how much more joyful we can be because we’re written in the book of life–having His inheritance–and how infinitely that overshadows any difficulties we may have. It’s still not easy in the moment of frustration. But as we’re being trained by being sanctified, the sooner we can look up as we go along, the better.
