Some days just seem to start out wrong. You know, the ones where you sleep badly or you miss your alarm in the morning and end up running late. Or the days that you happen to be extra forgetful.
Or maybe, you spill your coffee on your favorite dress. Or discover that you don’t have any money until payday and have to make do with what you have.
The days when, 3 hours in, you’re ready to throw in the towel, climb back into bed and ignore the rest of the world.
Those days when all you want to do is scream at everyone and everything. Or curl in a ball and cry.
Those days when you ask God “WHY?” Even if it’s just something small, you just want to ask Him why it had to happen to you today of all days.
You have a decision: give up and sit on you “pity pot” OR let go of your day and place it in God’s hands.
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
If you choose the second choice, then let go of your little problems from the morning, take a deep breath, say a little prayer, and trust that God has that day in His hands.
Take a moment to be still in God’s presence on those days to remind yourself of His promises.
- He loves you. Nothing can separate you from His love. (Romans 8:38-39)
- He is always there. Just open your eyes and mind to His presence for He isn’t leaving. (Deuteronomy 31:8)
- He provides for you needs, and often your wants. (Matthew 6:32)
- Call on Him and He’ll deliver you from your troubles. (Psalm 50:15) Maybe just not the way you’d do it.
These are just a few of His promises. They are reasons why we don’t have to worry about those days. These promises pave the way for us to open our hands letting go of these problems and allowing God to provide peace.
Some days are harder than others. If you don’t let go of the troubles, they follow you from day to day. So just let go of those days. Learn to be still and let go.
