So Romans 5:3-5 says this: "We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love" ...but that doesn't mean we won't have rough days, rough weeks and even rough months where life just stinks!
I am in the midst of just a crappy, busy, hard to deal with week. Some of it is financial, some housework I've fallen behind on due to laziness and being too busy and some of it is dealing with situations that I just don't want to deal with.
I trust in the Lord to provide for me. I know He will. It's not a question of "will I survive?" Of course I will, but I hate being behind on bills, housework, dealing with late paying parents and just being frustrated! Ugh! Weeks like this make me not want to get out of bed, eat nothing but junk and just be fussy in general.
But I am still doing my job, paying what bills I can and trying not to overeat, not being so successful on that last one, but whatcha gonna do???
This isn't a feel good, warm and fuzzy post, but I do want to encourage you (and remind myself) that there will be better days. The Lord has not forgotten me. Jesus loves me, this I know, for the bible tells me so! :)
