The baby didn't sleep and the toilet didn't work. The friend didn't call and raise didn't come. The car didn't start and the bills didn't get paid. The church didn't work out, and the kids fought all day. The school work didn't get planned, the lunches didn't get made.
The weather wasn't agreeable, the grocery store, too full. The oil didn't get changed and the trees didn't get planted. The freeze killed the garden and the toys are still strewn all over the yard. The mother didn't care and the son didn't call. The little one felt hot to the touch and you don't feel so good. The chemo didn't work, the big break didn't come, the prayer wasn't answered.
The letter didn't get written, the book didn't get read. The cake wasn't baked and the memory wasn't made. The grocery list was never started and the coupons never clipped. The jog never happened and the cupcake tasted so good. The husband didn't say sorry, in fact he didn't even care.
But you know what? The Father saw it all. And He is always there.
It isn't what happens to you that defines who you are -- it's how you react to it that determines whose you are. oh.my.goodness.i.needed.to.hear.that.
“Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Matthew 6:25-30 NLT
Happy Monday, Mommas!
