Tweet This. – Part 1
The Bible is filled with scriptures about difficult times in life. In John, chapter 16, Jesus tells us that we will have trouble. In the first chapter of James, he exhorts us to consider trials and tribulations as an opportunity for growth. Peter says that when times are challenging that we are to cast our cares on Him. Difficulties will come our way. They just will. How we handle them is a totally different thing.
Which brings me to drama. Drama is a medium that is filled with intensity and depicts a serious subject. While we are not talking about a TV series or play on Broadway when referring to drama, it can certainly come into play here.
(See what I did there? Play? Okay, I’ll stop.)
When life gets tumultuous and things don’t go according to our plan, we have options. We can throw ourselves a big, fat pity party complete with confetti and streamers. We can nurse a bitter heart and overreact. We can draw copious amounts of attention to ourselves so others will notice. We can toss out a little passive aggressive rant on social media. Or … we can respond with a heart that trusts God still knows what He is doing. Maybe it is time to turn down the drama.
We all need to ask God to search our hearts in regard to this. Are we walking through difficulties in life with trust in our God or with a dramatic bent? What is one way that you can make a change today?
