Pot Boiling Over

Today was just one of those days.

Nothing actually went wrong, but everything was hard.

I took a test yesterday, and the day after the test is just plain agony, especially when the tests are not returned.

I took a test today, and actually think I did good. I'm still not going to become an accountant, though!

I gave a speech today. I barely made the time frame, although she gives you 30 seconds plus or minus, but again, getting to the goal was a struggle.

God told me to go out and census for a while, but I chose not to, reasoning that I only had an hour and half before work. I accomplished nothing instead.

I went to work, and because it was raining, the kids had to be inside a lot. And of course they were rowdy, because they've been inside all day. They went swimming, and then later we went outside, but it was a long day.

I met with my census boss, and he was surprised I hadn't done as much as he thought I had. Guess what my weekend looks like?

I argued with my sister over where my loofah should remain: in the sink or in the tub. And then I yelled at her because she didn't put my towel back where I wanted it. How trivial!

And to complete my skewed day, my favorite show, the only one I watch, has just ended. No, excuse me, it ended last week with a "to be continued." As in, continued next season! Just force agony upon me! It wouldn't be so bad, except I had been expecting this week to be the last, so there was a week's worth of disappointment in me.

I missed His grace today. I think if I'm going to shower in the morning, I need to get up earlier so I can spend time in His Presence first and foremost, because if I don't right away, I won't at all. And I can't go without Him.

Maybe that's the lesson I need to learn today. I need Him more than anything else. If my pot is boiling over, maybe it's the signal to jump into the fire and burn for Him.

  1. In response to this post, let me tell my readers that I got a 97% on the test that was on Tuesday, and a 85% on the test that was Wednesday. I got 155/150 points on my speech, and I did finish all my censusing that weekend.The sun has been shining so much that we've been able to spend at least 35 minutes outside every day, and my sisters and I are getting along so much better.
    My favorite show is still my favorite, and I know that I can still anticipate its next season. God is so good, and so merciful!
