Pettiness, Vanity

While studying and praying this morning and feeling gratitude and love, had a brief conversation with someone and it didn’t fit my picture.  Irritation came sneaking in when I was reminded of my recent prayer to see God in everything!  Remembering that the carnal mind as mentioned in the Bible is very subtle and always out to steal our joy, I immediately smiled to myself and said “gotcha” knowing that was what it was.  Vanity or emptiness  certainly doesn’t  come from God.

Psalm 105:4 states ” Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always.”  So thrilled that I caught it so soon thinking back over times when it may have taken me days to be that aware.  Once again, I will practice seeing God in everything!
