silencing the cymbal…

Cluttered thoughts… lead to a cluttered heart…

Feeling like a clanging cymbal… as the day begins… love lacking… in action and word…

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels,
 but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
1Corinthians 13:1 ESV
(my emphasis)

Approaching life with muddled thoughts of grumbling… discontent… self-pity…

Love is patient and kind… 
It does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful…
1Corinthians 13:4-5 ESV
(emphasis mine)

Reminders… in my house… set in places… for just such attitudes…

Do everything without grumbling and arguing…
Philippians 2:14 HCSB

Songs memorized… to sing… my heart… back to peace…

Fighting to remember…
the Savior…

And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
Luke 1:47 NASB

His Love…

Love bears all things, 
believes all things, 
hopes all things, 
endures all things.
1Corinthians 13:7 ESV

His peace…

His peace will guard your hearts and minds
as you live in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7 NLT

His strength…

For I can do everything through Christ,
who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13 NLT

Die to self…

“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live,
but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh
I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and
gave Himself up for me. …”
Galatians 2:20 NASB
And live… in… Him…
