Thank You for the reminder. This morning I was woken up by my 5 year old about 20 minutes before school actually starts. I must have turned Off the alarm and fallen back asleep. I jumped out of bed in instant panic mode and we rush around like crazy to get him dressed for his parade find his book and pack lunch breakfast, hair, teeth…just get ready for the day. His parade starts at 8:00 and I get him there about 4 minutes before it starts. I am left feeling like a horrible mom and very frazzled. Not the way I want to start the day. I am beating myself up and feel totally overwhelmed and just not prepared for the day. As I opened the garage to too drive him to school (instead of ride his bike) I see this and an instant calm came over me. I heard that voice inside of me say…stop it. I am here and You are beautiful and wonderfully made and If you remember to turn to me and ask for my help I will get you through this day. No need to worry as all will work out according I my plan.
And just like that…I feel better and trust that being frazzled and anxious has no place with me today or amidst for that matter. The Lord is my light and salvation…why should I fear why should I be afraid? And I am not…anymore.
So thank you God for the reminder that I needed this morning. Turn you gaze upward and know that you can’t do it alone. Ask for help and you will be guided through with strength.
