|(This frog is sick and tired!)|
I love the quote “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.” Have you heard a stressed out mama ever say that?
I don’t know about y’all but I am sick and tired of Satan weaseling his way into my life and stealing my spiritual joy! I’m worn out from Satan’s sarcastic snarls of doubt that seem to knock the wind out of me at every turn. He's like the annoying dinner guest that just won’t leave. Do you know what I mean?
I’m tired of the Evil One showcasing my mistakes, reminding me of my shortcomings, making me feel worthless, and telling me I don’t belong to God.
These guilty feelings are wearing me out. Guilty feelings because once again I overslept the alarm-clock; I didn’t get up and read my Bible like I wanted to; I didn’t fold the laundry in time and now I have to wash the clothes again; I raised my voice when I shouldn’t have; I’m not self-controlled like I want to be; and maybe I stopped for My Little Pony Happy Meals one too many times this week.
Guilty as charged, sweet sisters!
So, I am dedicating this week to making us grace girls feel special, loved, and set apart. It’s high time we did, don’t you think?
Do you remember those “I am Loved” buttons? I think they were popular in Middle School. Middle School -- such a great time to slap that button on your shirt. Did anyone else think Middle School was awkward? I think only my parents loved me at that age!
Anyway, this button is my inspiration for the week.
I am loved. You are loved. We are loved by God.
