When things go wrong, sometimes that's all we can see. Yesterday I was at church and it turned into a very powerful service where three people rededicated their lives to Christ, two of which were our Springboard girls. Everything I was doing on my end, the graphics, livestream, formatting, Scriptures, etc. went wrong. I was so focused on those that I didn't enjoy the service and see what God was doing as much as I should have. I let my frustration diminish my joy. 

Isaiah 26:3 says: "You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you."

How often do we let things that don't matter ruin our moments? Then, because of the ruined moments, we decide that we've had a bad day. However, each day that we have is a gift. One of my favorite quotes is by C.S. Lewis and it states "Comparison is the thief of joy." We compare our successes to others. We compare our moments to others. We compare what God has given us to others. This is where frustration comes in because we even compare how we think things should be to how they turn out. However, God's plan is always better. He can take our frustrations and make them beautiful if we let Him. Every moment matters to God. How can you give your moments to God and invite Him into your frustrations?
