Does this resonate with anyone today?
Tuesday was a day packed full of meetings and there was no time to spare. It was one of those days that if it could go wrong it did. I really tried to manage my out of balance schedule and hold it together. However as the day went on and after cleaning up the 3rd pile of dog poop, I thought I was going to lose it. It was one of those days that no matter how much I was actually able to accomplish, the unending list of task continued to mount. There seemed to be no end in sight. I felt invisible, overwhelmed and overlooked.
We all have days like this but this one felt different for some reason. I actually broke down in tears. I was even angry with myself that I allowed my emotions to get out of control over something like this.
With all the disappointment and loss that I have recently experienced, it does not take much to thrust me back into an emotional whirlwind. It is amazing how quickly we can have a “pity party”.
I have been reminded over and over to take time for myself. To heal and process all that I have went through for the last 6 months. With no regard to my circumstances, life seems to demand my full attention and then the vicious cycle of being “stuck” starts all over again.
I am so thankful that my Heavenly Father whispers His Truth to my heart with gentle reminders that He has not forgotten me and that I am important.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31
