All frustrations are self-induced. The outside world can invite us to become upset, but we ultimately accept the invitation

        Ugh, I really don't like this caption.  Am I really to believe that my frustrations are within my power to control?  That's a lot of self discipline to expect from one person, right?  Self control is one of the fruits of the Spirit, but how much do we bear it?  I think we've all felt this way at some point and are ready to place blame anywhere but at ourselves.
        We've all seen people talking/yelling on their cellphones with their arms flailing about with exaggerated gestures and we think about how silly they look.  Ah, but yet for the grace of God go I when I get frustrated about even little things.  We often overreact and make a mountain out of a mole hill.
        Proverbs 25;28  ''Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.'' We are able to hold back and not let the rage of anger overcome us, if we want to.  'You don't have to attend every argument that you're invited to.'


  1. Now you are picking on me. Still love you.........Dad

  2. I've never heard that but I need to remember it: you don't have to attend every argument that you're invited to.
