Frustration 

I learnt a valuable lesson yesterday reading “if not for the grace of God ” by Joyce Meyer. 

I learnt that we can’t do anything in our power to achieve what we want. I also learnt that when you focus your energy and effort inti something that is doomed to failure, the only possible result is frustration. And what do we do when we frustrated, we keep up trying harder which only produces more frustration. 

We don’t attempt anything without asking for God’s help. We lean on Him the whole way through each project. We maintain an attitude that says, “Apart from Him, I can do nothing”

If you are frustrated about timing, lean to pray with the psalmist, my times are in your hands… (Psalm 31:15).

Sometimes when I feel my time is wasted in a particular circumstance, either waiting to see the doctor, waiting to get an alert from the bank, bad electricity, no water and so on…  Yea am not perfect and just human, I get frustrated and disgusted but after reading that inspiring book from Joyce, it changed my perspective to the way I handle my mood when frustrated.
