So many frustrations. Things don’t go as planned.
You tried to get out the door 10 minutes ago.
Even shouting didn’t get them moving any faster.
So much for trying to speak life, right?
Wait! It’s not too late to begin again. We all lose it.
Make things right. Ask for forgiveness for shouting.
Plan how you will work together to get out the door on time the next time.
And recommit to speaking life.
One “mess up” doesn’t mean you throw in the towel and give up.
You’ve got what it takes to use your words intentionally to speak life even when the situation goes all wrong. You can do it, if you want to.
Isn’t it in those most frustrating moments that it shows us what we are made of? It shows us what’s in our heart. That’s that hard truth, but it is worth acknowledging if we want to be a better version of ourselves. If we want to demonstrate to our kids how to handle life when things don’t go their way.
