Yesterday was a tough day. I didn't even get around to blogging. Took Elon to the doctor, another ear infection. Seems like every time he starts teething he gets one. Then I feel guilty for letting him suffer from what I thought was "just teething."
Last night while trying unsuccessfully to rock Elon to sleep, I was at my wit's end. As I rocked, I began to sing prayers over him. I spoke blessings over him and peace and healing, afterall, the power of life and death is in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).
It was one of those times where you just wait on God to "renew your strength." As I sat praying that God would give me the strength to "run and not grow weary" (Isaiah 40:31), I could sense His peace washing over me. After more prayer and a few tears, I got up feeling so much better, calmer, and able to minister to my husbands needs. (When he came home, I ashamedly admit that I was a "bear.") Elon almost immediately fell asleep, waking at 12:00 and 7:00am to eat and then sleeping until 9:00!!! Thank you Lord, for helping me through a trying day.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
