Processing Your Anger ~~ Joyce Meyers Devotional 1/30/13

All anger, regardless of its cause, has the same effect on our lives. It upsets us, causing us to feel pressure. Keeping anger locked inside and pretending it doesn’t exist can even be dangerous to our health. Most of the time we’re only hurting ourselves, and the person who angered us isn’t even aware of it.

I struggled with terrible anger until God grabbed my attention. I eventually had to find a positive way to process my anger. That was a place of new beginnings for me.

When you face your anger and decide to deal with it God’s way, you can overcome it. The Holy Spirit gives us the power to be stable and walk in the fruit of the Spirit. We have the power to forgive those who do injustices in our lives and to love the unlovely.

So we must take responsibility for our anger and learn to deal with it. Instead of keeping it all bottled up inside, seek the Lord and ask Him to help you release it. Process it and bring closure to it, and that will relieve the pressure.

Prayer Starter: Lord, I don’t want to keep my anger inside of me because that will only damage me and it’s not pleasing to You. I ask for Your help. Help me to relieve the pressure of anger in my life.

Yes, it’s hard not to get angry with people when they do you wrong, but I look at it like this, it Jesus can forgive with all the mess he had to deal and put up with, SO CAN I.  #inJesus’name…#beblessed

Vehicle Detailing ~~ First Class

image

As the winter months set in we get lazy about washing our vehicles.  We just don’t want to get out in the cold to wash a car.  We take them through the carwash and it gets them clean but we still have to clean the inside ourselves.  Even after going through the carwash there are still spots and streaks left and areas that just couldn’t be reached by the machines. 

So instead of taking our vehicles through the carwash, why not call on someone who can wash your car inside and out without machines.  I know someone who can do just that, Kerry Brown owner/operator of Brown’s First Class Detailing.  He will come and pickup your vehicle or wash it mobile.  I recommend him to clean your vehicle.  Below you will see pictures of my car before and after it was cleaned.  One of my wheels was rusting but after the cleaning, it looked just like the other three.  My seats were terrible looking and now they look great.  They hadn’t been cleaned in a long time so the outcome was shocking.

I just took my car over to his shop and left it there all day and those were the results.  I was very pleased.  They probably won’t have to take all day on your vehicle, but my car was pretty bad. LOL  

Let’s support our local businesss owners and stop giving our money to those machines. 

If you would like to get your vehicle washed or detailed, see the contact information below:

Brown’s First Class Detailing
217 E. 14th Street
Columbia, TN  38401

Call Kerry Brown at 931-398-0366

I am grateful for the work done on my car and will surely let Brown’s First Class Detailing clean it again. 
Give Kerry a call, he’ll hook you up.

God Gives Grace to the Humble ~~ Joyce Meyers 1/28/13

First Peter 5:5 tells us that God “sets Himself against the proud, but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble.” And anyone who thinks they’re a self-made man or woman has a rude awakening coming because Jesus said, “…Apart from Me cut off from vital union with Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5 AMP).

When we live in pride, trying to succeed without God’s help, we’re left open to so many attacks of the enemy. But humility is a covering that draws the help of God into our lives to protect us. When we humble ourselves by saying, “God, I don’t know what to do, and I’m trusting You,” God will help us.

God won’t allow us to succeed at anything unless we’re leaning and relying on Him. But when we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, in due time, He will exalt us (see 1 Peter 5:6). “Due time” is God’s time, when God knows we’re ready, not when we think we’re ready. The sooner we understand and accept that, the sooner God can work out His plan in our lives.

Prayer Starter: God, I humble myself before You, knowing that You will exalt me in due time. I can’t succeed on my own. I need Your help.

This is so true.  I had to learn this and now I let God lead me and guide me in the direction he wants me to go even if it feels different to me.  #daretobedifferent
