I hate it when people shout. I mean I understand when people are joking, but even that sometimes makes me uncomfortable. I hate it when I go to visit people’s homes and they are yelling at their kids, or their spouses, or just yelling in general. It always feels like there is chaos and unrest in those kinds of homes.
I want peace, I value peace, and sometimes I let things go for peace.
It made me realize that I need to pray specifically for peace in my home.
I pray that my spouse and I will value each other so much that we will not see the need to scream at each other. I pray that we will not make it a habit to always yell at the children but instead train them to learn to take our words seriously so that we don’t have to shout before they realize that we are serious.
I pray that whenever we feel the urge to yell, we will calm down instead and remember what it was that attracted us to each other in the first place, and realize that peace can get more done than strife.
I pray that peace will reign in my home. I pray that I am the kind of wife that builds up my home, so that my husband is excited to be there, and would rather be at home than anywhere else in the world.
How about you?
How do you feel about yelling?
I would like to hear from you: Talk to me.
