Headaches, too many coffees to count and promises.

In case you're having one of those days.
You know the ones I'm talking about...

The clock keeps ticking on by and you feel like it's going way. too. fast.
You just don't have time.
Time to do everything on your to-do list.
Or maybe you are like me and you are so busy, you don't even have time to make a stinking to-do list!
Your laundry is piling up.
You have a headache.
You have had at least 8 handfuls of chocolate chips...in fact, you're pretty much just dumping the bag straight into your mouth at this point.
You realize it's 4:30pm and the chicken is still rock hard in the freezer.
You lost track of how many cups of coffee you had after 6.
You can't find those same leggings you have been wearing every day (while switching up your tops and hoping that no one catches on) because they are hidden under the pile of clothes you threw in the closet when your doorbell rang.

Anyone? Anyone?

Well. I have a few things to remind you of.

You are worthy.
You belong to God.
You are able.
You are strong.
You are of great worth.
You have been given a spirit of power. of love. of a sound mind...not of fear.
You are never alone
You are an overcomer.
You are victorious.
You are free.
You have direct access to God Himself.
You have purpose.
You have hope.
You are guaranteed a home in heaven (If you have accepted His free gift of salvation)
You are loved.
You are loved.
You are loved.

So the next time you find yourself wanting to climb back into bed and pull the covers over your head...

Your life was valued so highly that someone literally gave His life for yours.
You are loved so deeply that the God of this world sees every single tear you cry...and truly cares about each one.
You have everything you need to become anything you could ever dream of being -
Because God has things planned for us that we can not even imagine.
Our only job is to surrender to Him.

Be encouraged today.
Do you see that list?
That is a crazy mad list of pretty incredible promises straight from God himself.
And guess what? He can't break His promises!!

You are loved.
You are loved.
You are loved.

Now put the chocolate chips down and walk away...
Or maybe you better start running away, you burn more calories that way.

And don't forget - we are in this together, me and you.
We understand that sitting here at your computer reading that someone else is having one of those days? kind of gives you permission to be ok with the fact that you are having one of those days too.
So it's ok. And you can get through this. I have no doubt.
Here's to a better tomorrow.
