Wow! What a day! Twice yesterday, I got all excited and then let down. I posted on my Facebook and Twitter a question, what do you do when you feel like the day is going wrong?
So far I have received a variety of answers, but all of them encouraging to me.
- Moment by moment, with lots of prayer!
- Go back to bed and take a nap, or at least take a few moments to stretch and take a deep breath!
- Go back to bed, take a nap and then pray when you get up.
- Take it easy!
Yesterday morning I didn’t do my quiet time for real, it was more like a sleepy email time. I believe this is why I have been out of sorts today. If I had taken the time to pray and read my devotion, I believe I would have handled these disappointments better. I mean really, how important is a smartphone in the total scheme of things? The crib is a little more important situation (we thought we had found one like we wanted for a good price), but even at that, I need to trust that God will work it all out.
My attitude directs my responses to my day and everyone around me. My attitude is set by my heart and my heart is directly connected to my time with God. So, at lunch we (me and the baby) took a few minutes to reconnect my heart and attitude.
Hopefully, this will reinforce the importance of my morning quiet time in my brain. Everyone has been saying I need to learn to take naps for when the baby is born, so a nap attempt is good too!
