Some days are just hard. No matter what you do nothing goes the way you want it to. Today was one of those days for me. When I got home I cried for an hour and kept saying “I’m just done”.
I think these days are meant as reminders that we are not in control of our lives-God is. For whatever reason Gods plan was something different for me today and apparently I wasn’t listening. It’s hard to admit that but I know that it happens more often than not.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your path straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
I know that everyone has bad days and everyone handles their bad day differently. Today I did not handle my bad day with grace. I was negative, angry, outraged, I had the worst attitude. I was not very kind to my innocent little man. I have since apologized to him and he’s now happy with milk and cartoons. But later today when I have a moment away from the wild toddler and cartoons I will have my downtime with God. I shouldn’t have acted the way that I did today. Everything happens for a reason and even if that reason never comes to light I need to be okay with it.
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21
So I will offer myself a little bit of grace today and pray that tomorrow will be a little better. Know that when you have bad days you are not alone…no matter how alone you may feel.
