I spend about an hour in my car a day. Thirty minutes to work and thirty minutes home. I have always known that I struggle with road rage, but I’ve noticed that it is getting worse. Today, when someone was going under the speed limit, I got angry and thought some inappropriate things about the driver. A driver who I’ve never met and probably did not deserve to be on the receiving end of the unkind thoughts simply because I did not approve with his or her driving. There are a million excuses that I could make, but simply stated, I am in a constant state of rush in my life that I’ve become unable to live room for grace.
Over the next 31 days, the month of October, I’m going to be writing every day on grace. It may only be a couple words, or a quick reflection on a Bible verse, but this month, I want to better see the ways that God is weaving grace into the ordinary, every day moments of my life.
I am prayerfully seeking that the Lord would grow my patience and decrease the rush in my life. And if by Halloween, I get less angry when people don’t go the speed limit on I-465, it will be an added bonus.
