Mantra Monday

Choose happy. Sounds easy enough, right? Then life happens. 
Kids make messes, traffic gets backed up, everyone and their brother decides to go to Walmart when you do…you get the idea. In our every day lives it’s easy to get caught up in the little annoyances. Those seem to be the straws that break the camel’s back. 
In those blood boiling moments, you have a decision to make: react or respond (Lysa Terkeurst “Unglued”). You can react in a way you’ll regret latter, or respond in a way that is pleasing to God.

How??? The only way I know how is say a little prayer. “Help me, Lord.” Those 3 little words can change your life. God doesn’t need anything fancy to hear your cries for help…(all you have to do is ask and then) you just have to let Him help you.

    I think at times it is difficult to say those 3 words in a way that is pleasing to the Lord our God. I find myself saying it, but in a grumpy way. I am sure my Lord doesn’t want me to ask Him for help in that manner. However, I beleive that He will still help me. I am His daughter and will help me in any circumstance.

    Thanks for the inspirational thought. I will surely keep it in mind. Especially the idea of react or respond. –Isa

    I find myself praying that prayer all the time, sometimes out loud so my kids will hear!
