Psalm 147:1

"Praise the Lord. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!"

It seems as if the past few weeks I have faced 
disappointment that has been troubling to me....
not because it was big or important or even very noteworthy, 
but rather the mere fact that I was troubled. 

I shed tears. 
Came back to wondering why I was so upset about this seemingly 
non-important issue. 
After a few tears, whining to my husband, 
and then praying that God would help me to determine the true
source of my frustration/disappointment,
I came to this conclusion. 

I am not often disappointed in life when things happen that I have no control over.
I seem to be very steady and logical and well-thought out.
when it is something that I possibly could have adjusted or changed 
or my disappointment was solely the result of a decision that I had complete control over I 
get very upset....upset at myself. 
Upset at myself
for not being
more planned,
more prepared,
more ....whatever.

I have been pondering this over the past two weeks as things 
have come my way - 
things that perhaps I have some control over the outcome. 
And then those things that I have no control over....
like the way people respond to things I have done with a totally pure heart. 

I'm working through this. 
With God's help.
