This morning I was up since 4:10 am since a little person that I know decided to get up at that time and not go back to sleep. I am completely exhausted! I have been trying to reclaim my home after more almost 2 years of not being well enough to do things as I believe they should be done. I spent week most of the week cleaning like a machine and yesterday I was scrubbing floors, all the while taking care of the children.
I am beat!!
When I got up I was extremely frustrated, disheartened as I just envisioned a LONG day with lots of downs.
But, then Philippians 4: 11 came to my mind
…for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am in. (New American Standard Bible)
I thank God for bringing this text to my mind and changing the tide of negative feelings that were about to completely engulf me. Now I am content in The Lord despite being tired, over- worked, mentally worn…
And now I can thank God that I am able to be up at this ridiculous hour and start breakfast and lunch before 6am. And I remember that around this same time last year I was not in a good state health wise. I had complications from my c-section,a punctured bladder, a clot that had moved into the lower lobe of my left lung and a myriad of health problems that were plaguing me.
Oh I Praise God for my present circumstances!
Thank you God for making me CONTENT this morning!
