After my fun weekend, I entered work this morning rested and excited to start the week. Now... 9:40pm I am just worn out and exhausted. I came home ready to jump into a meeting, but when people were late and I had the down time... I spent it in tears. Why am I so exhausted? Why do I take my work so personally? Why at the hint of conflict am I the first one I blame and run down? In the tears I just started writing. All I could do was pray. Ask God for forgiveness for letting myself be overwhelmed with the insignificant and untroubled by the true evils in this world.
Lord, I need to better prepare myself for this battle. I need to trust you in the little things as well as the large. I need to stop thinking about the mistakes and troubles. I need to focus my eyes back on Your face and love.
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8
Thanks dad for giving us that verse tonight!
