So, Monday I shared a prayer. Slow me down. Let me see the beauty in life, the simple things. I told a friend last night that I am tired of ISSUES, tired of all conversation being about some ISSUE and not just everyday happenings. I want to be rainbows and unicorns, just for a while. I know that God uses things to teach us and mold us. That discipline is good and grows us, but..... I don't want to learn anything today. I just want to sit and soak in the sun and love God.
I need so much help today.
I need help to not be so impatient with my children
They're just acting like children.
Really, do I want them to be quiet and sit and read books and drink tea all day?
They would grow up weird. They have us for parents, so the deck is already stacked against them.
I need help to homeschool well today.
Laundry is not more important than teaching my kid to read.
Dishes will wait until later.
No one is going to take me away to "Mommy Jail" if my kids eat cereal for lunch.
Help me not to let my six hours of sleep
affect my attitude towards EVERYONE.
I need help to get off my booty and get on "the machine".
"The Machine" always make me feel better afterward,
I need this burned into my brain.
I am the leader of a health/weight loss group.
It's sad that I've only lost one pound.
Oh, there is so much more.....
Has anyone else out there ever had a day where your prayer is simply "Help!"? Somehow it feels like I have not "finished" my time with the Lord because today there didn't seem to be any "adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication.....can you tell I'm a Baptist girl?" Today it was just a plea for HELP.
And I believe He will help. The Holy Spirit gives me love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. It's my choice to use them or put them aside.
God help me.
