Yesterday was a horrible day. I'm not going to lie. It was one of those days where everything and everyone was getting to me in some way. I was feeling very unhappy with my job and education, I got very emotional and just wanted to cry...I worked 11 hours, then when I finally got home we recieved some news that totally bummed us out ...I was ready to just go bed, I so badly wanted the day to end.
When I got in bed I started to think that even with all my personal problems and the tough things I am being faced with, my life is good. It is SO good. I have the most amazing husband in the world, I have the sweetest pup who loves us even at our worst, and my family is nothing but supportive. I have a beautiful house over my head, food in my fridge, and atleast I am working even though it's far from ideal.
This song has been my go to song lately when I am feeling down. The lyrics fill my heart...
"You must, you must think I'm strong to give me what I'm going through.
Well, forgive me forgive me if I'm wrnog but this looks like more than I can do on my own.
I know I'm not strong enough to be everthing that I'm suppose to be I give up, I'm not strong enough....
Hands of mercy won't you cover me, Lord right now I'm asking you to be strong enough, strong enough for he both of us"
Today I am challenging myself, and you, to....
-Take the time to tell someone you love them
-Give someone a hug
-Appreciate the little things in life
-Help someone in need
-Smile at a stranger, you may be the one person to make their day
-Be thankful for all the blessings God has given you
One line of that song, which is also from the bible, that I keep close to my heart is
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things, through Christ who gives me strength."
Today I am really trying to focus on being postive, and to not dwell on the negatives in my life. I am confident in God's plan for me, and I know everything will work out in the end.
