The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, ‘O God, forgive me,’ or ‘Help me.’ (Billy Graham)
The past few days, I can’t control my emotions. I’ve lost sleep several nights in a row. And when I’m exhausted, I tend to be impatient and angry all the time.
Afterward, I regret how I take my feelings out on other people. Then, I begin a pattern of self-deprecating thoughts, “How could anyone who treats others the way I do ever encourage another person in their faith?”
