Messy Monday

Oct 24, 2011

Yesterday will go down in the books as one of those days that I would be ok if I never had to relive again =)

But seriously, I just could not get it together. I kept on finding mistake after mistake that I had made. Some big but mostly small things that kept adding up and by the end of the day I felt a little bit defeated. 

It’s not like me to make mistakes like these. Obviously, I make mistakes and am far from anything magnificent, but today was different. It was me getting things incorrect that normally would not occur. Missing big picture things, getting date and times wrong and mixed up, not responding well in a conversation, not handling a conflict well . . . etc. etc. AND to top it all off, at the very end of the day I dropped my bronzer on the bathroom floor at the office and it shattered everywhere and made a mess! One big bronzy mess. Hah! By the time reality set in of what had happened and after I was on my hands and knees scrubbing the floor, I just busted out laughing. It was a perfect ending to the work day – summed up my day quite well. 

It really got me thinking about my life. Now, I know it’s not really fair to take one bad day and assume that there is something wrong with me. BUT, I sure could come up with several reasons as to why it may be this way. It made me think about whether or not I’m taking good care of myself – getting adequate rest and giving myself time to do the things that really give me life. Am I doing too much? 

There’s something to be learned from today. I’m wondering if there are things in my life that need to shift/chnage in order to be the best steward of my time and talents that He has so graciously given me. 

Sounds like a Resolution for Women revolution, right ??

Is there something in your life that can be cut out, taken away, or in some cases added into, in order to be the most effective throughout the day? Let’s commit today to asking God these very questions . . . and then wait to see, by our response, how things change and shift for the better.

The beautiful thing about yesterday, is that I could rest my head on my pillow knowing that I would wake up with a brand new day, and that God’s love and mercy would be there, welcoming me into new experiences and opportunities. God is good!
