Lately it seems as if I can’t get anything done. I’m forgetful, I get agitated easily, I go to the store for one thing, and it seems as if I wander aimlessly forever! What the heck?! That being said, if you happen to see me out in public, and I rip you a new one, please cut me some slack. Wait, that, most likely, won’t happen because you’re not in my family. Like most people, I prefer to dish out my wrath on the people closest to me; that way the whole world doesn’t know what a “B” word I truly am.
Since I started living for The Lord, I’ve never wanted to appear weak, or that I wasn’t trusting The Lord, and I firmly believe that God can and will take care of every situation. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that I’m human, and that I get stressed out. I’m trying to cut myself some slack. I won’t always handle things the way I should, and sometimes I need help, and that’s ok! What’s not ok is when I’m the way I am because I haven’t spent enough time with God.
You’d think, when one is stressed, the first place she’d run to is her prayer closet. Me? I start to pray and think of a gazillion things that have got to be done, and instead of praying I’m mapping out my day, and the result is that I accomplish nothing! Why? Because I can’t do diddly on my own! Without God I’m a cotton-headed ninnymuggins! And yes, I referenced Elf before the Christmas season has officially started! I may as well! Stores already have Christmas decorations out and Halloween’s not even over. Ugh. Which is a whole other blog of it’s own. Don’t even get me started on how we’ve distorted Christmas!
See?! I’m getting ill as a hornet over Christmas decorations! SO, what I think I’ll do, instead of rambling on in this blog, is go talk to Jesus and ask Him to help me through this day without wanting to do bodily harm to anyone!
Turn to the Lord before it’s too late.
Call out to him while he’s still ready to help you. Let the one who is evil stop doing evil things. And let him quit thinking evil thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord. The Lord will show him his tender love. Let him turn to our God.
He is always ready to forgive. Isaiah 55:6-7
