Peace for Today

I’ve had one of those days.

Let’s just say that the nurse at my doctor’s office now recognizes my phone number when it comes through on the caller ID.

And that I lost my car keys and after waking all three of my kids up from much –needed naps and loading them into the car, had to cancel three much-needed doctor’s appointments.

And now I’m sitting here with exhausted, worn-out and sick kids and no car and no idea what to do.

I’m a mess. How come motherhood can be so overwhelming?  I want to sit down and have a toddler-style meltdown and scream and moan about how my day has just not gone how I planned.

But God is reminded me again that I am not in control—he is.  And that the little things that seem so massively frustrating today are insignificant in the whole scheme of things.

God promises us peace.

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. (Psalm 29:11)

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. (John 14:27)

And, today, I pray that he fills my cup.
