The Wrong Side

It’s Monday.  And today- I woke up 

on the wrong side  of the bed.  We had a relaxing, fun weekend.  

I accomplished most everything on my to-do list.  We received another good

word of the Risk series at church yesterday.

By all accounts it should be a good day.  But when

I turned over this morning, I could just feel it.  My to-do list was already 

running in my head- as if it had been generated while I was 

still asleep.  That’s just not fair, right?

I sat in silence while eating breakfast, even though my 

husband was sitting next to me.  How could I already feel behind 

only 30 minutes into being awake?  I just needed grace.  When 

Matt asked what was wrong- that’s all I could say, “Today, I just need grace.”


And grace he gave.  I’m talking about tying my second shoe when

I was clearly having trouble with the first.  [Yes, he did that.  Yes, I’m a mess.]

Giving me a hug and an encouraging butt tap to send me on my way.  

He has gotten so good at it,

this whole grace thing.  Thank God I 

have a shining example right at home of 

the grace he extends to us with each new morning.  Or in my case, every 30 minutes

of some days.

bold grace

Ever had a day like this when you just needed grace?  How did the Lord renew your spirit?


ps.  Don’t forget to join our linkup tomorrow to revisit our resolutions!  I hope to see y’all there!  More info here.

  1. I love this post (and just adore you)! What a fantastic thing to remember, and girl, I’ve definitely had those days! It certainly helps to have someone at home who can successfully lift your spirit. We all need that sometimes!

    I also wanted to give you a heads-up that I’ve nominated you for The Liebster Award! I posted about it this morning, so take a peek and let me know if you have any questions! Have a happy Monday! xo

  2. I’m thankful for you and for this post. Yes, it is completely unfair when a to do list generates while you sleep and without your consent. I feel you! But your response upon waking is exactly right. It’s so hard to live in the mess sometimes but His grace is always sufficient as you say. Glad you got your shoes tied and your butt tapped too 🙂

    He is an unending source of grace. Thank goodness! I found after I read your post yesterday I needed some more of His grace and He was faithful to supply.


  4. Hello lovely! I’ve been trying to respond to your sweet comments with no such luck. So I googled you and voila here I am. Love this space chica.
