Yesterday, I wrote about spiritual battles. How in the past, I've first beat myself up then become depressed and so on.
Today, I was reading Chuck Swindoll's daily devotion (he's one of my favorites) and he said:

What do you do when tragedy strikes? What do you do when a test comes? What's your first response? Is it to complain? To be angry? To blame? To try to reason your way out of it?

See, sometimes I do listen.
