The Pity Party:

Pity Party TearsLast night I threw myself a pity party and no one attended.  I was feeling alone and abused due to an issue I have.  I won’t go into details about the precise issue…we all have them.  I couldn’t sleep so I cried all night.  This morning I finally remembered to pray and the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart that I didn’t have to feel the way I did; that I could have gone into God’s Word and prayed for peace.  He reminded me that I wasn’t really ever alone and that I need to behave like a child of God.

Why did I not pick up God’s Word and seek Him?  I did sort of pray but it felt like my prayers were hitting the ceiling and my prayers were all about feeling abused how others were blaming me for something I didn’t do.  I should have prayed in the Spirit since God says that doing so will edify me.  I don’t know why I didn’t seek Jesus in the Word of God but hopefully I will never again fail to do so.

As I spent time in the Word this morning and prayed in the Spirit I realized that I need to behave like a Christian and allow others to think and feel what they think and feel. I can’t change the mind of others.  I can only control and change my own behavior.  So I am calm and joyful today because of the Word of God and because I listened to the Spirit and was obedient.  By the grace of God, I will never throw myself another pity party.
