What's your Mood?


Ever had one of those days? Where everything seems to be going wrong? You feel horrible because it's that time of the month and you have to make dinner all by yourself, while your lazy brothers sit and play video games. Your hair looks horrible, you didn't even care to put a stitch of make-up on, and you just want to curl up under your covers and ignore life. When life stinks and nothing seems fair, it's easy to let our moods get the better of us. Especially as girls, we tend to blame the fact that we are crabby or irritable on PMS. Okay, let's just be serious. Yeah, we may not feel that fabulous, but that's no excuse for us to sin by being in a bad mood. Yep, I just said it. Being in a bad mood is SINNING. And let me tell you, I am so guilty of letting my moods control me.

Proverbs 25:28 (NIRV)
A man who can't control himself
is like a city whose walls are broken down.

When we don't have control over our emotions, we are completely defenseless. Satan likes nothing more than to get a foothold in our life when our wall of protection is broken down. When we choose to be in a bad mood, it affects our whole day. We think only of ourselves and are doing the exact opposite of what God wants us to do. He wants us to be focused on serving Christ and other people. When all we are focused on is how horrible our day is, we can't think beyond ourselves and see God's big picture. As believers, it's detrimental to our spiritual lives when we don't stay focused and concentrated on the Lord.
And so I ask.

What mood are YOU in?

In His Love,
