God is our refuge and our strength,
an ever-present help in distress.
Therefore, we fear not, though the earth be shaken
and mountains plunge into the depths of the sea.
It is said that if anger was a plant it would have a poison root and a honey tip. There are times in our lives when we are so busy that we coast through the day and into the next day without reflecting on our relationships and our contacts we have made throughout the day. Losing sight of connecting then with our emotions, we can put off or repress those times when we have felt the hurt of a coworker or a family member. When our loved ones have affected us in this way, it is easy to let our feelings become feelings of anger. Let's turn to God in those moments before we confront the other person finding that ever-present help that God offers us in our times of need. Have we been able to prevent an arguement by inviting God into the coversation, even if silently on our own through prayer?
Let's try to stay focused on each method of communicating that we do today, and what we say to whom and when.
