Have you ever had a day where hardly anything was going right? Did you find yourself complaining and becoming angry, short-tempered, and even using foul language?
If so, you may have come down with a case of the Grumpies (also known as living in the flesh).
The Grumpies often begin with an event, large or small, that irritates you. It can be the kids, drivers on the road, a co-worker…anything. The Grumpies then spread as multiple events stack on top of one another – often within a short period. By this time (if not already), you’ll discover those symptoms above.
Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
One of the cures for the Grumpies is a merry heart. Many times all we need is one shot of SOMETHING (funny, heart-warming, or prayer, etc.) to break our concentration from our fleshly rage. When the Grumpies are coming on, don’t be left to conduct damage control after you’ve allow the grumpy flesh to have its way.
The Grumpies are curable! All things are possible through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13).
