This morning I woke up a bit agitated. Different thoughts were going through my mind as I was sleep so needless to say my sleep wasn’t as peaceful as I would have like for it to have been or as long as I would have liked it to been. Battling feelings of frustration, trying to rationalize things and thinking positive can be a daunting task. Quite frankly sometimes I’m not up for the fight. Sometimes I want to give in to how I feel…somebody needs to feel this wrath!!!
This is how I was feeling on the inside. Unfortunately or fortunately, depends on how you want to look at it, the affects of it was like young Simba in the Lion King. It was an intense situation, Simba growled as hard as he could and it fazed no one and nothing. My grrrr can’t change the situation nor does it help the situation. And after realizing all my growling was useless and the enemy was probably laughing while God was sitting there giving me a look like “are you done so I can step in and do my thing?” I had to stop my negative thoughts and renew my mind in God.
That’s when I became like Tony the Tiger and my Grrrrrrr slowly turned into Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....rrrrreat! Regardless of how I feel I have to remember:
1. Count it all joy...if I make it through this I will experience growth
2. There is always something to be glad about even in the midst of trials
3. The situation is as only as bad I as make it to be
In order for my grrrrrr to turn into grrrreat! I had to let God step in. If it was up to me I would still be trying to make somebody hear me roar.
I’m sure we all have grrrrr moments, but unleashing how we feel ineffectively only causes the situation to get worse. We have to think about what we truly desire our end outcome to be. If how we act or react in a situation will not get us a grrreat! outcome we need to rethink our behavior, our words and our thoughts.
If you’re ever having a grrrr moment turn it over to God so He can turn your grrrrrr in to grrreat!

"Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true."
