This Too Shall Pass

Today I woke up knowing today wasn't going to be a day like I would have it.
Don't you hate when you have that knowledge?
Don't you just wish you could "un-know" something?

But I got E up for school, cooked her breakfast, read some scripture, and asked God to help me not be a B#!ch today.

And I tried to not think about it.

And then I knew...

"This to shall pass".
I heard it in my heart.
I knew it.
He gave it to me.
And I felt better.

Then the boys got up, I fed them, got them off to school and then I got ready to take E to her Doctors appointment.

Stay busy, that's the key.

Then I looked at Instagram and I saw a picture of Proverbs 31:8 & 9,

8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
   for the rights of all who are destitute.
9 Speak up and judge fairly;
   defend the rights of the poor and needy
.

And I teared up.
My friend Charity had posted it.
The conversation via comments on the photo went from there into out right preach.
Not bad churchy-annoying-preach but good preach.
The kind that ministers to your soul.
It was inspiring.
It was comforting.

He gave me that.

Because no matter if I feel crapped on today,
What I have got to know is what am I here for?
What am I here on this earth for?
That's what matters.
That scripture is what I am here for.
I know that.
I've know that for a very long time.
I get to do THAT.
My heart is full and alive because of it.

God sent me that comfort this morning and again he said, "This too shall pass".

It's not the end of the world.
I will get over it.
Wounds will heal.
Joy comes in the morning.

And right now, all I need to hold on to is "This too shall pass".

That's it.

Because my purpose in in tact.

I know I sound very dramatic, sorry, I just need to get this out.
It's nothing but sometimes what looks like nothing to everyone else,
can feel like everything.

So, I just gotta let it pass.

And when I feel I will burst if I don't freak out,
I will pray "please Jesus help me not to say something I can't take back while this too is passing".
