Yesterday

Yesterday was a rough day.
Not one of those overwhelmed by work type of days, or get up of the wrong side of the bed days. This was a kick your butt at every turn bad day. It was the day that when it’s over you’re glad it’s over.
You know what I’m talking about. It just goes from bad to worse to OMG help!!!
And the worst part is that people try to encourage you through it.
Come on people, you’ve been there before. Friends, family, coworkers trying to lift your spirits and all you want to do is freak out.
Yup, one of those days.
But you know what, as bad as yesterday was today is a new day.
Start over, forget the past and keep on living.
I thank God for second chances, and third..and fourth…and, well you get the point.
I still have to deal with some of the problems from yesterday, but what a difference a day makes. The urgent makes way for the important. Cooler heads prevail. God teaches patients.
Although yesterday I did freak out on God. I wasn’t proud of myself.
Said things I shouldn’t have. I regret it. I over reacted and blamed God.
Told Him I was forgotten, forsaken, abandoned, He didn’t love me and He should just strike me down. Like I said, I wasn’t proud of myself.
I don’t know if you’ve ever had a melt down like that and then throw God under the bus.
When I calmed down and decided to talk to God, He didn’t know what I was talking about.
He had no remembrance, forgot all about it. Which is strange cause I didn’t.
I felt crappy, He was fine.
I felt distant, He was as close as ever.
I felt bad, He loved me.
As a matter of fact, through it all, the struggles, the melt down, the failure, God was fine. He never freaked out, or was worried, or nervous. Jesus had it all under control. I freaked because I didn’t.
But I don’t have to have it all under control or even be in control. As a matter of fact the more I let go and give God control the better things are.
Yeah glad todays a new day. And yup I’m giving up control. Handing it over to my God. He doesn’t freak out or get scared. He’s got it covered. He never left me, never forgot me, never let me go. You know what? He hasn’t forgotten you either.
Just give Him control, Jesus got you covered.

Because of the Lord’s faithful love
we do not perish,
for His mercies never end.
They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness! (Lamentations 3:22, 23 HCSB)
