This morning as the snow was falling, covering the streets, and my car was iced over, I kept refreshing the school closing list, hoping that the school that I teach at would be closed, or at least have a two hour delay. I didn’t want to drive in the weather.
However, that was not my reality, and I felt the frustration looming over me.
But, as I scraped the ice off my car, I realized I had a choice. I could either be angry about something that I could not control, and let it effect my entire day. Or I could trust that God would cover me in my travels and let it go.
I chose to let it go, and as I got in the car, I knew I needed to listen to Joel Osteen. He’s always preaching about positivity. And sure enough, when my radio turned on to his channel, his sermon was about keeping a positive mindset.
By the time I reached work, I was no longer feeling that frustration. Instead, I was praising God.
