I had a rough day yesterday. I can't tell you why, exactly. But I was flirting with a dark cloud instead of what my proper response to the events of the day should have been. Flirting with. Not running from. Lord knows He's taught me how to deal with dark clouds by now.
But I've told you before, just because I know what to do and encourage you in that way, doesn't mean that it always comes easily in my own life. Sometimes my flesh has been fed a morsel too much and then doesn't go down without a fight. Read Two Dogs In The Fight. So after a day of dark clouds and discouragement, I was feeling pretty spent.
My CD player had broken. No music therapy for me. I didn't dare turned on the tv. I knew that all of the news would be about the shooting in Orlando. And that I wouldn't be able to get through three minutes of that without crying. Not what I need today, Lord. Please help me!
