a week

I know most people would like me to not write, but just post pics of my cute adorable kids on my blog, but I am having a week and I need to vent! This week (or more like today it seems) has included the death of a friend's husband, the end of a job, fighting with a spouse, lots of tears, a funnel cloud, and abuse of trust, just to name a few. And all of it has driven me to being overstressed and not coping! I say all of this not for sympathy, but to let it out, so my husband and children do not have to hear it or poor people who happen to call at that moment (thanks Anna for listening about one issue and poor Brooke another). I know all of this stress could have been prevented, I know, I know, I know. I also know I put the Lord's time on the back burner this week and have not laid it at his feet, but tried to cope with it all by myself. Why do we do that? Why does it take a daily sacrifice of laying it down? None of this happened b/c I did not read my Bible or spend an "x" amount of time praying, but I do know I could have coped with it alot better had my tank been full on the Lord and turned to him for strength. That's all just needed to talk it out. Thanks for listening.

I'm sorry you had a rotten week. At least you recognize your strength isn't in you!

Psalm 20
For the choir director: A psalm of David.
1 In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry.
May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm.
2 May he send you help from his sanctuary
and strengthen you from Jerusalem.[a]
3 May he remember all your gifts
and look favorably on your burnt offerings.
4 May he grant your heart’s desires
and make all your plans succeed.
5 May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory
and raise a victory banner in the name of our God.
May the Lord answer all your prayers.
6 Now I know that the Lord rescues his anointed king.
He will answer him from his holy heaven
and rescue him by his great power.
7 Some nations boast of their chariots and horses,
but we boast in the name of the Lord our God.
8 Those nations will fall down and collapse,
but we will rise up and stand firm.
9 Give victory to our king, O Lord!
Answer our cry for help.

It seems you have already stepped back and looked at the situation with different "eyes"...but most times that is all that is see your situation from another "angle"or angel..
