Today has been a very trying day! I got up late, knocked over this cute pinterest project of a jewelry frame off of my wall and into……my sink. Ta da!! Welcome to the madhouse, folks! That was just the very beginning of this very eventful day.
And I could dwell on the printer malfunctions, computer blowups, school not getting done and of course the most important thing, we ran out of COFFEE!!! But I choose to dwell on the fact that Jesus loves me. That tomorrow will come and this pileup of little details will simply fade away into the background. But what I will take with me is how I reacted to said craziness.
To be honest, I could have dealt with it better. I was constantly smiling, blow up, smiling, blow up, singing, smiling, blow up! Ugh, not the way to show my maturity in Christ. God reminds me that HE is the King and HE is in everything. And was I acting the way HE, the King of Kings, Our Creator meant for me to handle it? Probably not. I do think I handled it better than I have handled things in the past, but as for today, I’m still realizing and working on the fact that feelings, are in fact, just feelings. And as Christians, as MOMS, as women, we have to learn to deal with our feelings and set them aside in times like these.
I should have said a little prayer, which I did, by the way, many times, I also put it out on Facebook that I needed others, my warrior girls to say a little prayer for me too! And I did start to feel better. I think sometimes we just have to walk away from the pressure, the craziness and spend 5 minutes in a secret place worshipping and loving and seeking guidance from the One True God. Then HE will guide us and our behavior, IF we let HIM.
