It was pouring rain this morning as I was driving to work. It was cold with some hard wind blowing as well. I began to have a praise break in my car. Why? Because the car that I was driving for about a year or two was not great at all during weather conditions. When it rained, it was really hard to see and the wipers were not too great, when the wind blew, it also pushed my car to the side...crazy right. And I could literally hear EVERYTHING happening outside of my car such as the wind whistling through. But now, I parked my car and I was able to sit and watch, in silence, in my new warm and cozy car, through my super clean windshields the crazy wind blowing and the trees rocking back and forth shaking off the half bloomed flowers, pushing the rain left to right....in that moment I was so grateful and appreciative as to how God made a way for me to get a new car...also in that moment I was reminded of how much we need to continue to be responsible for our own spirit and be aware of what we are allowing to enter in and/ or surround us. It's our spirit and it's our responsibility to maintain it and keep it holy. It's not an easy thing to do. It's easy to be tempted and find your self in a whirlwind kind of like the weather condition I was watching in my car. But keep your spirit safe, warm, and firm in the Lord
