As I sit here on the edge of my coffee table writing this, I look around at the state of the house. Let me just say that it is not good. Today has not been good. Right now, I would actually rather be anywhere else. Today did not start out well, and let me tell you, letting that happen was my first mistake. Right then and there I should have decided to be positive and cheerful, but I wasn’t and now here I am pondering all of the different ways my day could’ve gone instead. Lately, I have been in a sort of “Lazy Day Blues” kinda mood and I can’t seem to shake it. The thought has came to me several times over the course of a week or two-“Ugh, God, seriously, why me? Can’t I ever have a good day without being embarrassed, frustrated, or grouchy?” I have been fussy, lonesome, and less than my usual self. I am in a SLUMP.
The house is a mess and I am in no mood to clean it. Prior to writing this I was cleaning in the bathroom. I bent down and a bottle clattered on top of my head. “Ugh!” I growled and then I let my thoughts slip-“Seriously, God. Why’d you have to let that happen.” I didn’t even think twice about it until now. How could I have said that? First of all, I was the one who knocked the bottle down when reaching for it. Secondly, God doesn’t let bad things happen to us-that, my friends, is the devil. You see, the Devil is super sneaky. He winds his way into our lives when we don’t realize it and he takes hold. He wants to take hold of you and me both. There he was in the bathroom with me, capturing my thoughts and my attitude. A day that could have been super sweet was super sour because I let it be.
When we put our life into perspective, it can narrow our troubles down for us. I may of had a bad day, but I do NOT have a bad life. Tomorrow will be better! 🙂 I hope that you think so too! And as for my slump, I am working on it, but I know that just writing this has made me in a much better mood. As I grow more as a daughter of Christ I know that I will stumble and fall, but God is there to pick me up.
