It’s been one of those days. You know, the one where you just can’t win. Everything goes wrong and your only goal is survival.
Now, if you’ve gotten the impression that I have it all together because of all the cute pictures on Facebook or my Pinterest inspired crafts…think again.
I DO NOT have it all together!
Whew, that felt good to confess. I think I’ll continue.
°My hair isn’t always perfect.
°I don’t shower everyday.
°My baby doesn’t take naps unless I’m holding him.
°I’ve yelled at my daughter for being two.
°My house looks like a disaster 6 out of the 7 days in a week.
°I have lost the baby weight but still can’t comfortably fit into my clothes because of the leftover baby dough.
°My baby cries when it’s just us at home.
°My two year old screams bloody murder when she doesn’t get her way.
°I don’t always know what I’m doing as a parent.
Sound familiar? I’m confessing these things out of the goodness of my heart to make y’all feel better. You’re welcome.
Here’s one more: Last week I went down in our basement and screamed. Yep, screamed at the top of my lungs for a good minute. But after that moment passed and I had time to reflect, I realized that I wasn’t relying on God. I was trying to reach perfection. I was trying to do it all by myself. That’s where I went wrong. I can’t do life alone, and neither can you! We need to hold onto God’s arm for support on those days where we just can’t win. When we rest upon his grace, he’ll carry us through.
Today is going to be one of those days, but God’s going to get you through!
