Do you ever find yourself only two hours into your day and you want to scream? Yeah, that's me today. I currently have so much personal stuff going on that lately... when I lose my temper... it stays lost. I've been having a super hard regaining my composure, handing my issues to God, and moving on with my day. It's like every tiny upsetting thing is suddenly super important and worth losing my head over.
I need a break. No so much a break from my day to day responsibilities (though that wouldn't hurt), but a break from problems. At the moment, I'm drowning in problems which vary in levels of seriousness.
What I need to do is take a step back and breathe, but it's hard to do that when you're drowning.
I must make an extra effort to spend time in the Word and praying and just being quiet before God. Then, and only then, will I be able to take a deep breath of fresh air again. My problems may not be gone, but I'll be walking on the water and above the waves instead of drowning in them.
Speaking of that, I should go read my Bible now.
