I give myself a pep talk whenever I start my day. I make a list of things to accomplish, try to keep an organized schedule. I make a mental note on what bills are due and if there are sufficient funds, dinner plans and the lists go on. But things don’t always go the way I want it to be.
The new work week started with a lot of cancelled appointments, dealing with difficult clients, and comforting a crying child with a gash on his arm. Life becomes so overwhelming sometimes. There are times that I want to throw in the towel. Today is one of them days.
For some, my troubles may seem insignificant. Some people may say I am over reacting. These are the reasons, I prefer to keep the problems to myself and just wished for it to go away. I know that there are people who truly care. I just don’t want them to think that I am weak. I know that everyone goes through problematic times in their lives at one point or another.
What if I don’t have to deal with people to get on my last nerves? What if the only people who I encounter are the kind and nice ones? What if I don’t have to deal with failures and struggles? What if all my debts are wiped away? Life would be perfect right?
The good thing is even the bad things that happen to us will eventually pass. Accepting the reality and that something can be done to alleviate the hurt that we feel. Our lonely feelings are valid. Our brokenness and the hole in our heart can only be filled by the ultimate comforter, the Holy Spirit. “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:10)
