One of Those Days
Some days all sorts of things are done with the best of intentions and the best of hopes, but everything just seems to become a snarled mess or simply fall flat. To put it simply, I'm currently have one of those days. Between sleeping late, a not-great running session, and some poor organization/planning, I'm not getting done what I could be or should be getting done. It's frustrating. And as I far too often do, I wonder if I'm measuring up.
Then I catch sight of this note taped to my computer monitor:
And I'm able to stop, take a breath, and keep on going. Because I am God's kid, and that is enough. It's not about my stuff or what I do or don't do -- it's about Him and what He has done for me. It's not me having to measure up, it's me trusting Him to set me right with Him. Yes, I have my part to play and I have things I need to do. But it's not as hard as I sometimes make it out to be.
