I have too many things to do than worry about the potential drama in my life.
I definitely don’t have time to put up with yours. (Perhaps that sounds rude, but it is so true) Don’t share your drama with me so you can gain another soldier in your drama army. I will not join your side. Tell me about what’s bothering you or what your situation is IF you want me to help calm you by praying for you or by helping turn you to THE WORD.
We all have things that happen in our lives that we can overreact to. It’s possible. But it’s also possible to react a different way. You have control over how you react to any situation. So do just that.
Stop. Pause. Think. Pray. Pray. Pray.
Ask God to guide you. He can help you react to any situation in a much better way.
This is huge: Don’t allow other people or your own bitterness guide you. That is dangerous and detrimental. That’s like spinning your wheels with no change in traction in sight! It will never move you forward.
Look to God.
Get in the word.
Sincerely ask friends to pray for you–not so you can let them in on your juice soap opera episode–but so they may truly stand in the gap for you. They can help send your name and your requests to God. True friends will find it an honor to do that for you.
Get over the drama. Run to God. Open your Bible. Ask for prayer. Pray. Pray. Pray.
You can do it!!!
