Tonight I did an exercise that called for me to list EVERY single irritation that I have. The point is that each irritation builds on the next and creates anger altogether.
I honestly didn’t think I had many, but it turns out I do.
The next step is to get victory over each one singularly, rather than trying somehow to address “my anger” all at once.
After I listed these irritations, my chest felt tense and tight. It was uncomfortable to realize there was so much beneath the surface going on.
I began to pray and turn over these issues. Within a few moments, I heard birds chirping outside. It is around 8 p.m. I’m used to hearing them in the morning around 4 a.m. But haven’t really listened in the evening.
The beautiful sounds from the birds is having a calming effect on me. My chest has loosened up and I feel better = more peaceful.
God had provided a natural remedy for my irritation tonight. I am grateful. It is a pleasant sound and I’m going to continue to sit here in silence and listen for a while longer.
Until Next Time~
