Had an interesting experience on my commute home this evening. The off ramp from the freeway makes a sharp left hand turn, so sharp that a sign is there to advise 15 mph as the recommended speed. The off ramp is joined on the right by speedier traffic exiting from another freeway.
As I turned slowly turned left, I heard a loud horn blast to my right. A middle-aged woman scowled at me and waved her middle finger! I'm assuming that she thought I was going to veer into her lane, but since I was traveling slowly and had not even touched the middle line between our lanes, I don't know exactly why she was so furious with me. I'd been singing along to a Newsboy song as I turned, but now was quiet.
First I was angry, then I said a prayer to forgive her and for her to be freed from hostility. Three minutes later I was angry again and had to "give it to Jesus" again. Do you ever do this? Give a problem to God and then find yourself chewing over it later? Even three minutes later~LOL! Then I got home and shared it with my DH. He smiled at me and reassured me. I rode my exercise bike and elliptical trainer and felt better and better.
There are some angry people on the freeway, and other places. I'm grateful to my Lord that He gave me the prayer for this woman, one of His children. He had to handle angrier people than I...even to the death. May you all be given peace and strength from Him to deal with your own daily challenges. Bless you!
