Try again...

Yesterday started off beautifully.
I woke up early, got things started well and then... it started creeping in on me.
The big bold sign in my mind that says, "You can't do anything right"
"Look at this, are you ever going to accomplish anything?"
Over and over, I battle these demons of mine.
I seek the Lord and ask Him for strength, but every once in a while I let my guard down and
They sneak up on me once again.
There are so many problems that need fixing around our home. I can get down and out about that... and it was one of the things that got me down.
I think though... at least we have a home.
So many have lost their homes, so many don't have homes in the first place.
Quit being so selfish.
Another...I have yet to lose any weight... here they come, the words that hurt.
And again, I have to remind myself that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
and, I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength.
So many problems, they can make me feel as if I am drowning.

I just wanted to say it out loud, maybe someone out there is struggling too.
Remember, we can try again tomorrow or today!

Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good! Romans 12:21
By no coincidence this is our memory verse for the month!
Thank you, Lord!



  1. Oh, THANK YOU!!!!!

    Yesterday, I took a HUGE step of faith and did something that I have wanted to do for a long time. Didn't sleep well last night...fretting over the money spent (a large amount for our family), the wondering if I can actually do well in this, and so much more. I had to keep pushing those negative thoughts aside and know that I can do all things...but only through Christ who strengthens me.

    Hang in there and bless you for being honest! :)

  2. I know that feeling! The devil dancing in your head, making you feel less, making you judge those you love as less. Yes, tomorrow we get to try again, Praise God! Begin tomorrow with prayers, wrap your arms around yourself and squeeze, for you must love yourself to love others, take a deep breath and jump right on in.
    Hugs for you from me!

  3. Yep, I can relate. I think we all can. But sometimes it gets worse than others, and I have been battling this recently, too. But it WILL get better because God IS in control. I like to sing when I start to feel that way. Nothing the devil hates more than if you sing praises in the rain. :)

  4. I have days that everything looks undone, that I will never get anything done, and the things I do get done get undone. It's like a cloud that comes upon me and the only way to make it go away is to think on things above.
    If it matters at all, YOU are still at the top of my *hope to meet some day* list because of the things I see in your life and family and home. !!

    1. <3 Aww, Mrs. Mo! YOU are at the top of my list too!!!!

  5. I so appreciate you sharing this with us! I truly needed to read this today. Thank you!
