I lived my own poverty of spirit today, when I actually thought that someone was winning over me, forgetting that I am cared for, forgetting that there is abundance in the world, forgetting that I am given all that I have and lashed out to protect myself. The alligator came out in me.
There are at least 3, okay 4 ways to keep the alligator asleep:
1. Remember that I am truly loved by God
2. Try to look at things from His perspective.
3. Trust in His abundant love for me
4. Trust that no matter what goes wrong, He can make it into something good. He is the ultimate creator that way.
I'll get plenty of rest tonight and try again tomorrow. His mercies are new every morning and so shall mine be.
