Ever have that conversation where you are wanting badly for the other person just to say what you want? I had one of those today but it didn’t go my way and I wasn’t the happiest camper about it. Truth be told, I was agitated to levels I don’t often recognize as being my own mouth or mind? Speaking to anyone?
After I hung up my phone, I actually seethed for a bit and got even more irritated when I could hear that “voice” tell me I was wrong! I just plain didn’t want to hear it that minute, so I started to argue out loud for all the reasons it wasn’t wrong for me to be this mad. It didn’t take but a few sentences before I just shut my mouth completely. Why waste my breath verbalizing a losing argument?
Sitting in silence I could still hear the “voice” tell me what I needed to do but I wasn’t real receptive to its wisdom. There was an apology to be made and I knew full well who it was to make it. Thank goodness I still had a few miles to drive. I needed to adjust and prepare myself for these words. I wanted time to move the words from my head down into my chest.
Proverbs 24:14 Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off
