Wednesday Confessions: Annoyance
Note: I may earn money or products from the companies, products, or links mentioned in this post.
It’s that time of the week again where we all talk about those things either from this past week or just in general that we need to confess. Sadly, I wasn’t able to post this yesterday (on Wednesday) so this is Wednesday Confessions on a Thursday!
My confession this week:
I get annoyed pretty easily.
Although hard to admit, yes it’s true. Sometimes I just get annoyed when people are slow, when they can’t hear what I say, when I have to repeat my self 20 times, when people are in my way, when someone is being annoying, when someone is doing something I don’t like, and when people are just being people!
I know it’s not very Christ-like, but it is a flaw I have and it’s sad because I tend to get annoyed more easily with the people I am close too. People such as family or really close friends, but mostly just family. My husband thinks it makes no sense because what is the purpose of treating complete strangers nice, but get annoyed with your family? I have no idea. I just keep thinking, “But I don’t know them!”
I really think it is a patience issue. I think annoyance comes from being impatient. So right now patience is an issue I am working on. Even if it’s getting up each day and asking God, to please help me patient and kind throughout the day no matter what!
“..and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” – Hebrews 12:1b
I am always scared to pray for patience! 🙂
I can get annoyed easily with family too. Maybe because I know they'll love me anyway.
I'm right there with ya on this one! I was actually just thinking last week about how it is the people I love the most that I get the most annoyed with. Why? It makes no sense. And just last night as I was praying for patience, I thought about how that's not always a good thing to pray for. Lol!
I am the same way! It's something I'm constantly struggling with.
