When You Feel Like You're Flipping Out
God knows everything that’s going on in your world. He knows everything that’s going to happen in your day…including how many things you’re going to actually check off on your To-Do-List. So don’t flip out! The remedy to not flipping out is realizing that you really aren't in control and that the fruit of the Spirit, which is found in Galatians 5:22-23 is within grasping distance. The one needed here is the fruit of self-control and maybe patience with yourself.
Try not to flip out. Breathe. Think on good things. Renew your mind. Take a break. Walk away. Take a ride. Stop, drop, and pray! The biggest thing is don't let the anger control you or cause you to have an angry outburst.
The Bible tells us in Ephesians 4:26-27, “And don’t sin by letting anger control you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.” And Galatians 5:20 says, “When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear…hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outburst of anger…” and the list goes on.
The Word has power and can really help us when we feel like flipping out. I’ll tell you, the Word of God combined with the help of the Holy Spirit will help you. The key is pausing and yielding to them. And even though I know that’s not always easy, try it, anyway. ;-)
