Lean On & Trusting In.... {Finding Strength when your Tired}

I'm sitting at the counter with the swish of the washer, loud meowing cat at the back door {it's COLD},  the cough sneeze and sniffle/snots of three children, clutter, LOTS of dolls, dust, a big pile of shoes & dog hair on the floor.

Some days just scream out at you.  All I would like to do is climb back in bed!

The weeks have been busy.  A little too busy! 

Instead of throwing a stop my foot temper tantrum.  Instead of throwing buckets of grumpy, messy, ugly out on my family.  I'm really trying to lean back into what the Lord is doing.  To look at it as a growth opportunity.  To accept things exactly as they are --today. 

This is hard and it's a choice.  But the peace and joy from viewing things from His perspective has given me peace, rest and strength to keep moving forward. 

"Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.  In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths."  --Proverbs 3:5-6, AMP

A good day doesn't require perfection.   It doesn't mean all your chores are scratched off that to-do list {or napkin in my case}.   It doesn't say you failed if the bathroom doesn't get wiped or if dishes are still sitting in your sink. 

A good day is to just do what you can do in a glorifying manner.  Keeping our eyes on God. 

Now --off to grab another cup of coffee! 

Are you with me?! {High Five!} Let's do this!
