Ok guys. Only two days till I make my big announcement. If you're following along, you've probably noticed that by this point in the year...I've missed a few days. Which is a bummer, but at the same time, it's life, and I'm ok with it. That's actually not true, I'm a recovering perfectionist, but I'm pretending to be ok with it so that you don't think I'm really THAT crazy, dear reader.
I've heard this before, but someone at work today said to me...the days are long, but the weeks are short. I guess, like a lot of words, they can hit you differently at different times. Today, that kinda smacked me right in the face. It's been an overwhelming and stressful week at work. Often, I find myself wishing away the days until I'm off and free for a few hours before doing it all over again. And yet, why would I wish that time away? Ok so it's not my favorite place to be, or my favorite thing to do...all the more reason to offer it up. I wonder, sometimes, at the amount of suffering, to varying degrees, that is wasted in this world. Suffering that could be used for our sanctification, or others.
We all have suffering and pain, in some form in our lives...although it may look very different from person to person. Let's use it today, to glorify God. Because even in the storms, He is still good.
