And when God's best medicine is a taste of your own.....
I have no patience what-so-ever, and it is ever so hard for me to wait on God's timing.
Mostly because I don't know if His silence means I am suppose to take a step of faith on my own or wait until the last second possible for Him to make His move or show us the way.
We're praying about some serious to us issues right now and it seems like there is absolutely NO indication about what direction to go. So we wait.
Yeah I know. People have serious life threatening issues going on and I'm complaining about this.
You'd think after being a Marine wife for 7 and a half years I'd have this down.....yeah not so much.
I actually can't complain too much about one part though. God did say no about two things we were praying about the last two weeks. One was for fun, so I was sad when we couldn't do it but such is life. The other was concerning hubby's job that would have saved us some $$, but none the less God closed the doors, and I'm ok with that. They were answers. Next.
And the bitter medicine I had to swallow over the weekend:
You remember THIS post I did last week about not judging other mother's?? Yeah well I had a bad attitude develop last week, (mixed in with a bit of anger and down in the dump issues,) and it was just a lot easier to start judging anyone and everyone to make myself feel better...
Absolutely everything everyone was saying on facebook, in blogs, or doing in general was
Now luckily I kept it all to myself, but the last time I checked, God knows what's in our hearts and He sure wasn't liking the blackness that was swirling in mine.
By Friday I was at a boiling over point and was looking forward to the weekend. I got a text from my husband saying he was going to be let out early and that put me in such a good mood I went upstairs and scrubbed our shower. When I came back down, I discovered another text asking if he could go golfing. My first thought was immediate annoyance, but my husband NEVER does anything for fun outside of the house with anyone else, so I was like ok, what's a few more hours, it will just be like the rest of the work day...
My husband got home at 8pm Friday night. Yeah, can you imagine with the mood you already knew I was in, how well that went over??
I didn't even take it out on him though. I spent the last 2 hours before he got home balling my eyes out about my attitude over the week and then crying some more over how I hated my attitude. It was one ugly mess.
Needless to say I limited my use of fb and blog usage A LOT this past weekend and even though I am still feeling down about a few things that I am hoping to touch on later, I feeling a little bit better. Anger and grumpiness will get you no where!!
So here I am pouring my heart out to you, or being honest, or maybe just complaining I'm not sure, but I just don't like being fake anymore.
Honesty and realness is the new in.
Life is hard sometimes and it just always seems greener somewhere else.
And even though happiness is a choice and even though some people may seem like they have it all together, they are having their own battles inside.
**On a side note, if one has to take meds to counter-act side effects of a prescription medication they are on, is it really worth it???? These are driving me crazy people!!
