Today, I Overcame…

So today I did something that I vowed that I would never do…I took my daughter to school with my pajamas on (thankfully I didn’t have to get out of the car)!

But today was just one of those days.  My husband is out of town for a couple of days, the kids and I all had an extremely long day yesterday where we didn’t get home until almost 11pm, and being 7 months preggo on top of all of that added even more exhaustion to an already tiring day.

The one thing that came to mind while I was up getting the kids ready was 1 John 4:4~”You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, b/c the one who is in you (me) is greater than the one who is in the world (NIV)”

I then started to think about who or what the “them” was, in my life, that I had already overcome this morning?  The “them” this morning were the nagging feelings of me wanting to complain and be snappy w/the kids b/c of all of our lack of sleep and our schedule being thrown off.  And even me being disappointed w/ myself for not getting up at my regular time so that I could be up and ready, fully dressed w/a hot breakfast waiting for my kids… those were the “them” that were lurking and almost got me to do, say and even think some things that wouldn’t have given God any glory or set a good example for my kiddies.

So for all of that I’m thankful…I am thankful that the Holy Spirit reminded me of what was the most important, that He, the Spirit of God, is living on the inside of me so therefore I have already OVERCOME any obstacle that comes my way!
