A Do-Over

Yesterday was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. It seemed like everything that could go wrong, DID go wrong! I won’t list everything, but suffice it to say that we won’t be closing on our house today, and we really don’t know when we’ll be closing on the house… The wires got crossed and the date for closing got written down for 2 weeks from now, so things are not in order. However, we have movers coming in 5 days, and have to be out of our apartment (as in HAVE TO BE!) in 9 days. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

*Those exclamation marks are my frustrated shouts over the last few statements; can’t you hear it?!

But thank GOD His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:23), and I can start each day over. Thank God for do-overs!

We’ll figure this out. He’ll give us wisdom and patience and peace. We will NOT be consumed! As much as I wanted to literally scream many times yesterday, I had to contain myself and instead just trust. Trust Him. And know that it will all work out.

In the meantime, Lamentations 3:22-24 and Psalm 121 are what I’m clinging to right now…

Psalm 121

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

And as for today, it’s already a better day! I’ve got the music cranked up and I’m waiting for my parents to get here so we can celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday this weekend!! What an AWESOME distraction from everything else!
