Today is day four of my personal challenge to write a post every day for one week. So far it has not been horrible. But I also feel like it is a big accomplishment for me. Seeing as how I was beginning to become terrible at having my writing post ready by six. So this has definitely been beneficial for me. If you are confused at all about what I am talking about, you can find more information from my Mondays post.
Well anyway, so I still want to write something important each day and not just write to waste time or space. I have been thinking a lot the last few days and have been starting my posts the night before at least, which again is huge for me. So bare with me a bit. I think everyone can receive something out of at least one of my posts.
Today, Day 4…..
There are many days that will feel “off”. Many days that will bring forth conflict. Busy days, full days, bad days. I have always hated having days not go the way I think they need to. But even when I can control things, there is always a limit. A point where it does not matter whether I am in control or not, the day is just going to do whatever it wants to. People get sick, people cop attitudes, people do not always understand. Before I go any farther on this subject, I must explain a little more.
Before I had kids, it was near impossible to go through the day without some sort of mental breakdown because of how things were turning out. I am not proud of that at all. I am however genuinely thankful that I learned through it. It took me a long time even after I had my kids to understand and get used to the fact that things will not ever truly go how I want them too, or how I expect them too. I have wrote a couple posts in the past about change and how to handle it. But this time is different. I have wrote about handling life changes. Handling events that just go their wonky. Today is more about the moment to moment adventures inside each day.
A bad day is only a bad moment that took control over the situation. If you let your bad day, be that way every day; Your once in awhile bad day can turn into a bad life.
I hate when things go wrong. I hate being excited about something just so my kids can cry the whole darn time it is happening. I hate it. But I have slowly learned to just pray through it. Pray through the bad moments and not let the moment take over the day. There is a moment in each and EVERY day, that can shape the day completely, but Only if you let it.
Things should not always get out of control but when they do; Take your control back! Yes, you can only control so much, but in some cases, the extent of what you can control is your own attitude towards the situation. Things used to be easy but they are not that way anymore. Now that you are an adult it is up to you to shape your days, good or bad, into something that can be positive. A learning experience, an adventure, or just a bad moment..
Unique Advice for Today: Pray through the bad moments and do not let that bad moment take over the day. Also Do Not let those “bad days” control your life.
It is hard, and trust me I know it. I am soo understanding of how you feel. Bad days suck, but maybe let us try to just make them bad moments, even when its a lot of moments in one day, you are still alive and you are still blessed. Everyday is a new day, a new adventure, and is full of amazing possibilities. So let us; let the peace of God that we were already promised, control our days, instead of letting our bad moments/attitudes run wildly ahead.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 NKJV
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 NKJV
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,… Romans 5:1 NKJV
