Turn Spam into a Spiritual Discipline

I don’t normally get this much spam e mails from my work e mail. They block pretty much everything – and sometimes I don’t receive e mails that were meant for me. I have to check my Junk Mail every now and then.
I asked about it a few days ago, and we’ve got a new “something or other” that IT is working on. They’re working the bugs out or something like that.
Needless to say, I have been receiving a bunch of spam emails for the past few days – more than I normally get. Today, I got three in a row bam-bam-bam, and my initial reaction was to be frustrated about it – which I was going to be but then I was convicted about it. Why am I going to let these emails bother me that much? That was when I decided to turn Spam emails into a Spiritual Discipline. I decided that I was going to pray for the first person that I thought of right after I received an e mail from greetingcards.org. It wasn’t going to do me any good to think negatively about any of it so I decided to take spam as a trigger to pray.
What negative thing in your life can you use to trigger prayer?

  1. I must apologize to the IT department and they have set me straight. It is not what they are working on, but that the volume of Spam from all over the world is just growing.
    Needless to say, I still offer up a prayer for whoever I’m thinking about at the time when I do receive it. I guess it was more about turning negatives into positives much more so than IT not doing their job.
    Thanks IT department for what you do.
