Thankful Thursday

Yesterday I woke up in funk. No particular reason. I was in a poor mood before my kids even woke up. I arose early enough to do my Bible study, but even that didn't lift my spirits. Things did not improve the entire day. Even the sound of my sweet #1's voice grated on my nerves - just keeping it real, here.

My wonderful husband could sense my frustration, that and I told him how icky I felt. He offered to take the 3 babes to his momma's house to give me some alone time. I know me, and alone time would have only made the situation worse. However, I took him up on his offer and headed to Wednesday night service solo.

Oh, how thankful I am that I was there. The music was good. Just plain good. And as I sang the words to "Sanctuary" I prayed them and slowly the goo lifted. When I sang that holiness is what I long for, I meant it. And He answered.

I woke this morning in a much different place mentally. 100% better. And I am thankful that satan's hold didn't take. I hate it when those moods strike, as the tend to do and even more when I can't shake it, no matter how flat on my face before God I get. But he brings mercy every morning and today is good!

Hope you are having a great Thursday, as well. And if not, maybe tomorrow will be better!

Happy 3rd of July~

I so appreciate your honesty and your precious heart. We all have moments like this, but when the icky-ness is gone, isn't it a great reminder of how wonderful life is when we bask in His Greatness?

Satan must have been on the attack yesterday! But, connecting back up with the Lord does works wonders on that!!! What a wonderful, powerful God we have!!!

This was SO me on Thursday. Satan attacks when I am committed to my quiet time so I totally understand where you are coming from. So glad that you woke up better and had that time alone with the Lord on Wednesday night.
