Having a Hard Day?


Oh there are days like this aren’t there?

Days when you want to curl up and forget about the world around you!

Life has been hectic, to say the least, around here recently. God is so good and has blessed our business, but we are crazy busy.

There are days when I walk away from the office wondering how we will get it all done…..and yet somehow we do.

Today I looked at our calendar for the next two weeks and just shook my head…there will not be enough hours in the day.

And my instinct can be to get stressed and throw up my hands.

Instead today I just said a simple prayer.

That God would give us the wisdom, strength and time we need to do a good job for all of our clients.

And while the prayer doesn’t immediately change the number of meetings or deadlines we have, it does give me a right perspective.

Each day we are given an opportunity and we have a choice at how we are going to respond to it. (<==== Click to Tweet)

We can look at a hard day, or a busy day as negative or we can seek to find the blessings, even if they are small.

Yes our calendar is full and there is so much work to be done…..but thank God that the calendar is full and we have so much work to do!

It is all about perspective!

On those difficult days, pray that you would have a right perspective. Pray that God would show you the blessings if you are having a hard time seeing them.

Give the impossible to Him and watch and see how He makes it possible. (<==== Click to Tweet)

And remember that this too shall pass….

Praying for your friends, in this difficult season of life you may find yourself in, please know that God is with you!

On a side note, how incredible was it that there was so much buzz online yesterday around Holley’s newest book that is available for purchase?! “You’re Going to Be Okay” is a wonderful book and I will be posting even more about tomorrow…and there may just be a fun giveaway involved too!!

    It’s all what we keep our eyes focused on – that perspective:) Congrats on your business booming – and the grace God gives you to keep up withit:) We’re in our busy season with our business – and trying to keep the blessed perspective – not “I’m-being-put-on” mentality allowed!

    This reminds me of something I read while I was in Greece: “The only difference between united and untied is ‘I’. Where one sits determines how she hears and views the world around her. In unity, or untied.”

    Kristin: I SO love this post today! Especially, “Give the impossible to Him and watch and see how He makes it possible. ” I am always amazed at how God can do that… He’s done it time after time after time in my own life! I love it!! 🙂 Such a beautiful gift to watch! Have a blessed day today! ♥

    Ah yes, perspective. Sometimes mine is really askew. I too feel like I have too much to do and not enough time to do it. But we just have to do the next thing and we’ll get there. Cheering you on today…because actually when I see all you do, I am overwhelmed. In His strength!!

    Kristin, I love how you said, “Each day we are given an opportunity and we have a choice at how we are going to respond to it.” So true my friend and praying for you during this hard week.
