Pay attention….

Today has been a really trying day for me. It all started with a text message from USPS regarding the package that I have yet to receive. Yes this is the same package that I was frustrated about last week. I was actually good and not worried about the packages and I said “Lord I put it in your hands and I trust that the packages will come.” To make a long story short my items has been going back and forth from the sorting facility to the post office where I lived several months ago. I changed my address with USPS but my items aren’t being forwarded to me instead they’re floating around to only God knows where. I will not bore you with details about my whole day but basically it all started with that text that triggered anger and I was frustrated the whole day. By evening I began to calm down and I thought about Peter. As long as Peter had his focus on Jesus he was fine but, as soon as the wind and the waves came he took his focus off Jesus and looked at the circumstances around him. I was reminded that I am a lot like Peter. God had already given me peace and I was content with receiving my package whenever it came. But when I received the text message  saying that it was sent to my old address and that it was undeliverable, I became frustrated because I don’t understand why the post office isn’t using my new address that I updated with USPS to forward my items to me. Clearly the enemy knows what to do to tick us off… I had to repent and ask God to give me peace. I also had to thank him because I already had asked him to take care of this matter and I know he is but… Circumstances… I just pray that God keep my eyes on him so I can pay attention to him and not be distracted by the storms around me. Matthew 14:22-33. I have so much more to be thankful for and some people don’t even have a shelter for anything to be forwarded to them so, like that old gospel song say “I won’t complain.”🙂
