ONE OF THOSE DAYS....

I am having one of those days or few days. Ever had one or several in a row??? At ever bend in the road something is falling apart or going wrong.

My oldest went to Cedar Point Amusement Park with the Youth group at Church. We were waiting for him to arrive when we got a call that the bus had broke down. At 1 am hubby and I packed up and headed out to get him . Hubby wanted to fix the bus. Bless his heart he tried until 6am to fix it on the side of the road. To no avail. When we arrived home at 7am our other vehicle had a flat tire....I am still scratching my head on that one. A dear friend called at 8am she needed to come over. She needed a shoulder to cry on. My flesh wanted to say, "" I was really busy and had appointments to keep " My flesh wanted to SLEEP. I had been up all night on the side of the road with a broken down church bus. Surely that is a good enough reason. Another friend called at 10am she needed to drop off her two little ones for a couple hours. Again, My flesh wanted to say "NO" I wanted SLEEP. I also had a list a mile long of everything that HAD to be done. I got down on my knees. I prayed the Lord would sustain me...would give me what I needed to do HIS will and not MY WILL. I had to surrender my tired body, soul and mind to HIM. Lo and behold...HE DID....The Lord answered my prayer and blessed me in spite of myself. He is so good....So wonderful....I am humbled.
