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.
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.
