Today was a total Monday. I hate to beat up on Monday, because it really can’t help being just a day on the calendar. But today fit the classic description of a “Monday”.
Sitting here tonight, I was letting it get to me. After all the things of today; finding more problems in this house was just enough to push me to the edge.
I sat down at my desk. I put my head in my hands and prayed. I don’t know how to make this less stressful. And it was one of those moments where an answer came. Mind you, I pray a lot without hearing a thing. And I don’t know what God sounds like audibly. But tonight, in my spirit I heard, “Stop trying to do everything yourself”.
Truth. Why do I always try to do everything myself!? I am even annoying myself with this!! I took another few minutes and prayed a little more. Of course I’m not alone, yet my initial thoughts are always to forge ahead myself. I asked God for help first. I immediately felt more calm.
Then, I shot out a couple emails, one with an instant reply of help. (P.S. I know a terrific handyman service if anyone ever needs one!) I’m taking some of these projects off my list and getting help. Sure, I could do more of it myself; but at what cost?
Tonight I am thankful that today is ending soon. I am thankful for help to get some immediate projects done. And I am thankful that tomorrow is a new day. And a new day to remember that I don’t have to try to do everything by myself!
