There’s injustice in this world that we can allow to defeat us or empower us to make a significant change. 

Sometimes when we’re shaking mad, it can be like looking through a kaleidoscope of fear. This happens when we’re trying to protect our viewpoint, reputation, belief, security and/or ego. The root issue has less to do with being angry at someone or something and more to do with losing control. 

Maybe you watched “The Matrix” and enjoyed the far-fetched science fiction where we were all physically connected with cables to computers. Or you loved “Star Trek,” where Picard becomes part of the Borg with a wearable computer connected to his brain.

In Proverbs 23:7 the Bible teaches us that as a person thinks, he or she is, in their nature, character, who they believe they are in their heart of hearts. 

Weariness has the habit of zapping strength from our minds and bodies when we’re going at life hard, on our terms, when we leave God out of our equation.
