#thirstythursday / I’m so over the DRAMA

Drama…

Do you ever feel like it follows you??

Some days I’m exhausted by the drama and just flat out tired of dealing with messes. Anyone else?

This devotional from Proverbs 31 Ministries has stuck in my head for days. Fact is – I have a choice to live with and encourage the drama OR live a drama free life.

Yes. Please.

My first instinct is to always react emotionally to situations.

I love the realness of this story and how the author took an alternative route that day. She chose to settle her nerves and pray. It calmed not only herself, but her mom.

Our choice to live drama free impacts EVERYONE around us. How powerful is that truth?

Our focus can shift more on Jesus and less on ourselves and our drama.

John 3:30, “He must become greater; I must become less.” (NIV)
Lord, help us all to remember this option next time we’re faced with a situation and we want to react with an explosion of drama. Help calm us, give us wisdom and in return become greater in our lives as we become less.

  1. She makes an important point here about how to take handling the drama one step further. It was important not to overreact when on the phone with her mom. I am mostly good with this. Much of the time, I am in control with how to react with the person in the moment. But, the part that struck me the most was when she said she also resisted the urge to talk To her siblings or her husband or her daughter about the situation. That will effectively “nip it in the bud.” She won’t have to rehash. She won’t have to relive. She won’t have to feel those emotions again, rethink her reaction, etc. I am trying to learn this. I don’t need to vent to anyone else once the situation is over. If anything, I need to pray. If I need to vent it should be to God. Thanks for sharing this.
