Monday, January 26, 2015. Good morning friends and family. It is sooo beautiful outside. The sun is shining brilliantly. From inside, behind my desk it looks warm and inviting. Oh, but don’t let the brightness deceive you. The outside thermometer is checking in at 50 degrees. That means it’s still a little on the cool side. That’s not all that’s cold at my house this morning. I went to take a shower and guess what? You guessed it! No hot water. This red-head is about to get perturbed with one certain hot water heater. If he’s not careful Mr. Whirlpool may find himself replaced. I had some problems with it a few weeks ago. The serviceman replaced a couple of things and it’s worked okay until now. Hopefully, it just needs a tweak or a little minor adjusting. The worst part is I had to change my plans for the day. Since I refuse to take a cold shower and I am not even considering leaving the house without one, I suppose I’m homebound until the repairman comes. Ah hah! It’s test time! Do I let aggravation take over and get all disturbed or can I go with the flow, be flexible, and stay in peace? I choose peace. Perhaps I wasn’t supposed to go anywhere today. It’s not like I don’t have plenty to do right here. I had a little talk with Jesus about it and He said, “It’s okay, let’s just do something else. We can do that other stuff tomorrow.” You may laugh at me or think I’m crazy, but I do talk to Jesus about these things. In fact, I talk to Him about everything. You see, He told me in his book that everything that pertains to me is important to Him. I totally believe that! The Holy Spirit lives with me and endures everything I go through – I don’t really think He wanted to take a cold shower, either. The Bible says the Holy Spirit is my teacher. What does He teach me? How to be like Jesus. He teaches me how to walk in holiness. Today’s lesson: to stay in peace instead of aggravation and turmoil. Oh, and don’t forget patience. I don’t have any idea what time the repairman will get here. I need to display patience while I’m waiting. What is your lesson for the day? Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to teach you to be like Jesus? Be careful. Don’t hang on to the negative emotions. Work on the positive side. That’s where Jesus is! And while you’re in the middle of today’s lesson, remember “Jesus Loves YOU!”
