I lay in bed, listening to my son’s happy chatter across the hall. It was 5:14 am. Why was he awake???
I was looking down the barrel of a 16 hour day. My hubby has a track meet today which means I’m flying solo from wake up to bedtime. These are long, hard days.
As I thought through the day, I could feel my chest tighten. I didn’t want to do any of it. Not the dishes, not the laundry, not the meals, not the diapers, not the tantrums, not the bath times, not the bedtimes. It was all just so tedious.
So, I pulled a pillow over my head and prayed, “Oh Lord….please, please give me a new vision for this day. Give me glimpses of Your joy. Give me a reason it’ll be ok”
I got up, got the baby and started my day. Soon there were giggles and snuggles and big, open-mouth baby kisses. Soon there was coffee and worship music and a kitchen dance party. Soon my chest loosened and I began to think, “Today will be a good day. There isn’t so much to do…we’ll be just fine”
Today is another chance to seek our God and see His faithfulness! He sees you! He cares for you. He is a good, good Father and He answers when we call!
