Aggravations in Daily Life That Tries Anyone's Patience
If you have ever lived in the land occupied by 500 billion mosquitoes in the region of South Florida called Miami-Dade County then you have faced a unique challenge called…traffic. This problem dates back to the time when men were riding a horses and thought they didn't provide enough options such SirrusXM radio, a Bluetooth connection for your smartphone or most important of all, air conditioning!
So these brilliant men joined together after realizing civilization had a major issue and were determined to fix the problem. So they invented the automobile. Soon, the news of this profound innovation traveled far and wide of this new form of transportation to the peoples of Central and South America. The husband reads the news, he tells his wife, “Honey, pack up the kids, were moving to Miami!” Now South Florida is known as, North Central South America along with all the driving habits such as, honking the car horn to move a traffic jams. Using the vehicle turn signal indicator only during Christmas to celebrate that time of year. Turning on the hazard lights when you are driving when it starts raining. At a stop, turn right from the middle lane. And finally, the best pastime activity, texting while driving. You will immediately spot that because the car in front of you is stopped and not moving when the light turns green, or they are going side to side, moving slowly.
Also, adding to this unique experience when you’re driving and stuck in traffic is the one you love. Your patience starts to become thin and you may become grouchy. An argument with the one you love may start because the frustration is becoming overwhelming and you are wishing there is a smart phone app designed to mute people. Fortunately you do have some options.
You can get really irate, morph into “road warrior” mode, where this road rage consumes you and then you try to run any moving object off the road, or be patient and humble. Here are some bible verses to possibly help you. In Ecclesiastes 7:9 it says, “Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.”
James 1:19 addresses anger when it says, “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry”
We all become angry at times and it’s a human trait. Other ways to deal with anger is praying, play some calming music or meditation. That might make your drive in traffic more bearable. May God Bless you today!
