“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” Maya Angelou
“Be joyful always” 1 Thessalonians 5:16 (NIV)
Not long ago I wrote a post about my sprained wrist. Well as an update it turns out that it is not sprained! However, don’t get to excited… the soft tissues are inflamed and I have to get my wrist adjusted for a few weeks to help heal it. The good news is that it should heal quicker than a sprain would. The only thing is I have had a hard time with my attitude about it. Whenever I am going through my day and it starts to hurt me I get really frustrated. It’s definitely an inconvenience and I have been annoyed that it has taken so long to get better. I know that is not the right attitude to have, yet I have still struggled with it. While typing this post it has given me some trouble as well. But, while typing this post I also had the song playing from a previous post, Worship Song Friday: Hold Me by Jamie Grace. Just listening to that song helped me to put my attitude in perspective. Things will be fine whether it takes a day or weeks for my wrist to heal. I am in God’s arms so why am I letting something so simple get me down? My joy does not come from the circumstances around me but from God. So when I am frustrated about my wrist or anything else that might cause my attitude to be down I am going to remind myself where my true joy comes from… God!
