I woke up this morning feeling a little down. I'm overtired from night after night of disrupted sleep and my husband is working extra long hours at the moment.
Things are gradually getting on top of me and today I'm really feeling it.
As my mind buzzed with everything I need to get done this week and all the things that are getting in the way of that, I felt my muscles grow taut with tension... and then a small voice ran through my brain.
"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10
It was enough to make my frantic thoughts and emotions pause for a second and put everything back in perspective. God knows me, he knows what I'm trying to do and he's on my side. I don't have to face this day alone, I just need to pause long enough to recognise his presence and invite him in.
Thank you that you are always there, Lord. I commit this day to you. Help me survive it with a smile on my face :)
