Me: You don’t seem very joyful, or anything.
Myself: No. I’ve decided that when my prayers get answered, I’ll be joyful, or anything.
Me: Hmm. Chances are, you’re going to be grumpy for a very, very long time.
Myself had to agree and then repent. If we can’t be joyful and expectant before our prayers are answered, it’s because we don’t really believe that they will be answered. The pre-answered joy is faith, because we know that God will do what He promises to do.
Do you need to have a conversation with yourself and get a little attitude adjustment? We all do from time to time. It just means that you need to admit that you haven’t trusted God as you should. Repent and claim His faith.
Having a bad day is not sinful. How we react to it can be. Don’t indulge in being grumpy. Snap out of it. The longer you linger there, the more comfortable it will be to stay there. God has given us joy and love because He wants to us to live in His blessing.
Take care of your feelings and have a nice day : )
