common annoyances

"I function more like a Christian when the occasional crisis hits, but more like an atheist when the much more common annoyances bump up against me. Maybe the impact in each moment is dramatically different, but over time the accumulation of my atheistic responses to life’s smaller frustrations leads to a deformity in my piety.
How might God be glorified if I responded to him in the midst of my ever-so-common annoyances instead of reacting blindly to the circumstances themselves. How much more happiness and peace would I experiences in life if I allowed my theology to embed itself so deeply in me that I could truly see all things working together for my good and glory of God?"
