Ever have one of those days?

You know what I’m talking about, because we have all had them! One of those days when it just would have been better to stay in bed … for your protection … for the protection of your sanity!

I had one of those days recently.

Upon waking, the day ahead seemed bright … Friday is often like that.

Even when I left for work, the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and I had a smile on my face. I was feeling so good, I decided to stop for a tea on my way to work.

But, the drive thru line was longer than I realized …

I somehow forgot to count when I went to pay for my tea (and the ability was not coming back fast enough) …

I spilled the piping hot beverage down my front, as the cover was not on tightly …

My water bottle cover was also not on tightly, and my lunch got rinsed thoroughly …

Upon arriving at school, the early morning meeting was not what or where I had remembered …

And, and, and …

Things did not improve … until I climbed into bed, later that day, eager to fall asleep and say good bye to this day.

We all have days like that. Days when it seems that there are forces all around playing havoc with our peace, our productivity and our sanity.

In John 16:33 we are reminded that troubles are to be expected:

“… in this world you will have trouble.

Now that could be message enough to send us back to bed, each and every morning, but the message does not end there!

“But take heart!
I have overcome the world.”

Even in our Murphy’s Law kind of days, we need to hold to the promise that Christ himself has overcome it all … and all for you and me.
