There’s a children book called Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. This book has been made into a cartoon, that my guys used to watch when they were little. I am sure Amy still shows it in the classroom. Anyway, in the beginning of the story, the parents are going around the house singing a song that goes something like “Some much to do, so little time in the morning…” Amy and I still sing that a lot as we bustle around in the morning trying to get “stuff” done.
And that’s especially me this morning. Between coaxing a teenager to get ready for school, watering the garden, running, picking tomatoes, showering, ironing clothes, reading email, paying bills, and talking Fantasy football with Andrew I am plum give out and its not even 9 am! Phew.
I am sure y’all have days like this as well, and these are days when this stuff can crush our spirit. I have already caught myself this morning, feeling this self induced anxiety coming over me, and knowing that whoever crosses my path better watch out. That’s not good. It’s day’s like this we need to remember things like this:
10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)
He’s in control, and he’s the one that we can can find peace in. So if you find yourselves like me today – just a little frazzled. Be still for a few moments, focus on Him and see what a difference it makes.
I know, I feel better and ready to head off for a day of cubical warfare!
