All of us have our “buttons”—things that make us react negatively. My “button” is feeling overwhelmed. This happens when I have too many things to do in a short amount of time. When I am overwhelmed, I get very grouchy; but even worse than that, I tend to get too busy for God.
One time I had seven classes I was teaching—I couldn’t remember which classes were starting their week or which ones were ending. I wish I had remembered these passages from Psalm 46:10—“Be still and know that I am God.”
Even in the midst of chaos and confusion, we need to talk to God. Only He can calm the storms in our life. How are you handling your “buttons”?
