Let It Go and Go to Bed

Before bed, I put my anger and regrets in God’s hands. He sorts through my collection.

He trashes my resentment to a coworker’s criticism (how dare she!)  and a comment I overheard (nasty).


Ephesians 4:26 (NIV)
Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.

He shakes his head over words spoken that I regret. He tells me to own up to my true motives, to learn from it and to let it go.

James 3:14
But if your heart is full of bitter jealousy and selfishness,
don’t brag or lie to cover up the truth.

Sleep light.
