Anyone got some toilet paper?
It is SO one of THOSE mornings. You know, the ones where your alarm goes off, but you can't wake up. My alarm went off at 5:30 and I am *yawn* still sleepy. I couldn't wake up enough to read the Word this morning. That is enough to throw my whole day off. So, of course, we left a bit late this morning, two out of three of my children were cranky, I forgot my bank card so I could put gas in my van (it was sitting dangerously low on 'E') and by the time I got to Ryan's house I was throwing an adult version of a temper tantrum. And my head hurts. I was mopping the floor in Ryan's kitchen last night and I hit my head on a corner of the cabinet. Nice goose egg and bruise on my forhead this morning. lol I need to apologize to my kiddos for loosing it this morning. I really have to learn to control that. I'm so sleepy, in fact, that I just picked up a roll of toilet paper next to my computer, thinking it was my drink and about drank the toilet paper roll. *yawn* Yep, I'm tired.
But what I know is that this is the enemy attacking. I am beyond tired and cranky. So I tell you again this morning, to step off and leave me ALONE. I am covered by the blood of Jesus. I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength. I am more than a conquerer. I break down every stronghold in the name of Christ. I will wake up, I will focus on what I need to get done for the Kingdom today. Even the work of my hands for my employer will glorify Him.
On the better front, God is providing for my needs through extra work. So Praise Him, the bills are going to get paid! Woo whoo!!! Hallelujah!!!
I am also giving God the praise for daycare issues. I put my kids in a home daycare a few weeks back, and it was with a Christian woman, but some things weren't setting right with me. So I moved the boys to Ryan's daughter's daycare this week until I could get my boys into a Christian Daycare Center near my home. I have strong convictions about putting my children in a Christian childcare because they're not with me for 10 hours of the day, and I still want them to be trained up in the way they should go while they're young. I called this daycare a while back and left a message, but never got a call back. I had even planned to call them this week to get the boys on the waiting list. To my surprise, the director called me yesterday and they have openings on Monday for all three of the boys. THAT is God, I have no doubt. I'm still laughing for joy because I'm in awe that God would answer so quickly! When things like this happen, I know God is listening when I pray. To Him belongs all the glory, the honor and the Praise for everything happening in my life! He is so very worthy of my praise. He is so worthy of your praise. Like Paul, I pray that you will learn the secret of contentment in any and every situation (Philippians 4:12), as God is teaching me even now to be content and trust in Him no matter what my circumstance.
