It's been one of those mornings. I'll spare you the details because I know we've all been there and I know that you don't want my junk cluttering up your day. But just know that it's been a morning filled with a load of frustration and anger ... and I've been awake for less than 45 minutes. Insert "sigh" here.
And today when I need the kind of grace that covers this angry heart, I'm anxious to get to that place with the Lord. I encourage you to spend your morning with Him. I know that mornings can be so rushed. I get it, I know. But can you wake up 15 minutes before the house explodes with activity? Or can you take some time while the kiddos nap? Or some time on your lunch break? Or even a few minutes before bed? I encourage you to set some time aside to gain strength, wisdom, and knowledge for the journey. It makes such a difference in my day...and my attitude. My whole family benefits and then I know I'm making strides at being the mom I really want to be.
And if you're really struggeling with spending time with God, here is a post I wrote about carving out time when I was a brand new mom. And trust me, I still use some of those techniques because there are days when time is the last thing I have.
