Have you ever had one of those days when you just can’t override your emotions? And just when you think you’re coming out of your funk you realize your 2 year old has not only pooped “all by himself” (Yay! *sigh…) and decided to wipe with ½ a roll of toilet paper, which has found itself into the toilet. Many days, I feel like I’m not gonna make it. Simple as that. My body tells me just that. My muscles give out, my head starts to ache and spin, and it becomes more difficult to breathe.
The great thing is I have a God that reminds me He’s right there. Now, don’t get me wrong. I know that may sound trite or cliché. And quite frankly, on a day when your child states, “But Mommy, I don’t have any underwear!” as you’re getting out of the car at school, this knowledge can only be so comforting. I don’t have time at this point to grab my Bible for Scripture study and revel in Who God is or ponder anything. Except for maybe why life has to be so difficult at times. (Why does life have to be so difficult at times??)
God lets me know in only a way that He can that I’mma be ok. All those critical thoughts are not what He’s thinking. All those negative, ugly remarks are from the one that wants to completely annihilate me and my beautiful soul; they are most definitely not from the One Who loves me more than anything. So on those days, when I’ve just stepped in what appears to be a mixture of pee and jelly, God gives me a quick hug if I only take the 3 seconds to let Him.
