Satan, the roaring lion
There are days where you swear you shouldn’t have gotten out of bed. Today was one of those. I’m not talking like just a bad day, I’m talking I haven’t had a day this bad in years.
I was worked up about something. But, the exact cause eluded me for hours. I’m in my early 40’s, is this a midlife crisis? Is there some medical problem? Am I just fed up with my job or my boss? I felt scared and frustrated and just plain alone.
Wow, what a roller coaster. Not much work was accomplished today. At least by my standards.
Then, of course, it struck me. I hadn’t taken the problem to Jesus. I was busy trying to fix it myself. I prayed at my desk for just a minute. But immediately the darkest burden lifted. By the time I got home two hours later I was clear headed. After dinner my patient wife lovingly walked and talked with me.
Now, I’m not going to divulge too much personal junk here, but suffice it to say we have a better grasp and are working together on a solution, this time in prayer.
