Ever have one of those days???

Ever have one of those days when you know everything you have said shouldn't have been said??? You just feel anxious inside and have no peace? I have fed my husband with raw emotion who then of course wants to fix my situation and to make matters worse it has to do with one of our children and how I am perceiving the treatment he is getting. I should have known when I went to the phone and couldn't get a hold of anyone that where I needed to be calling wasn't on the phone but the Throne! I just hate days like this. I have allowed myself to be rendered ineffective for the kingdom when I gossip, vent in an inappropriate way, fret over any situation. I know I need to let go and give it to God but can't seem to understand why I can't just take that short cut and talk to Him first. I always seem to find myself lost off the path then going the long way before I finally have the aha moment! Hello God it's me Linda, gotta minute?? " I have never moved my child, I've been waiting right here for you to call". Ugh Why is it the spirit is willing but the flesh takes over?????
How about you? Ever have one of those days????

learn to "encourage ourselves in the Lord like David did wait on him to answer... and he will his character never fails" we do , marina

Awww, hang in there. We all come to God last instead of first at times. I guess the thing is - at least we come to Him at all!
I'm sure the Lord gives you more grace than you give yourself...

Hey looks as if you haven't added the "followers" option to your blog so you should have nothing to worry about.

Hope all is well with you and your house full of boys!

Oh, I think we have all had those days. What a great reminder.

I just had a conversation today over a very similar subject. Why is it so hard to remember to work on our vertical relationship with The Father, in order for our relationships with others to improve?
