Today was a really hard day. I’ve been fighting a cold of some sort, and even with the vernors and ice cream my husband brought home I am still feeling draggy. It doesn’t help that I’m at a “low point” hormonally.
My kids are probably not feeling well either, because they’re easily distressed this morning.
I did have my devotions, but they didn’t seem to “help” my feelings of misery (I’m being a little melodramatic on purpose). Then the thought occured to me that perhaps God just wants me to do right even if I don’t feel like it.
- I must be patient with my children, even if I don’t feel like it.
- I must make them lunch, even if I don’t feel like it.
- I must be productive, even if I don’t feel like it.
And on and on.
So, we cleaned and swept the patio today. It’s a beautiful day, and by the time we were done, we didn’t even need jackets. I keep reminding myself that each day this month, I’m putting something new in the freezer. And my room is nearly clean.
But I still have to do right because it is right, regardless of my feelings. I think perhaps this is the lesson God wants me to learn this week.
Now for some chocolate ice cream as I finish my room…
Yes, I need to clean the kitchen and fold laundry, but I dont feel like it. Guess the Lord is prompting me to do what is right… so I’ll go get busy. Not sure about music yet, Susanna is still sleeping.. she was up for a long time coughing. 🙁 Last night was such a huge blessing. I am so grateful the Lord put you in my life~ I’m always callenged to grow more in love with My Savior after being with you! You are a blessing!
