Sometimes things don’t turn out the way we planned, and that leaves us irritable. It may be God’s way of showing us a new way, a new lesson, something we didn’t realize before. Today I bought ant spray, declined a bag for it, and put it in the car. When we got home, I remembered it and went to get it. An empty car. I groped under the seats. Nada. Now I was really irritated.
When I had cooled down, I walked back to the car. This time I said a prayer to the Holy Spirit to loosen my mind into logical thinking. I opened the car door and reached under the seat I’d sat in on the way home, and reaching all the way back—Voila!—the lost spray.
That’s the way things happen. Forget that irritation.
