Bad Heart Day?

Instead of a "Bad Hair Day", have you ever had a Bad Heart Day? A day where your heart just isn't in it, whatever you may be doing?

This past week was a trying week for me, as most seem to be with two little ones, but this was a week I could feel the devil trying to attack. Tuesday was the worst day for me, a very hard, long day. I was up until 3am the night before, I had to work the next day and it was a double day for me (for those who don't know, I clean houses once a week), my eye was bothering so much with watering and burning and I had to wear glasses instead of my contacts, which means no sunglasses, which means instant headache from sun-squinting... and so on. Life was rough by 8am and I still had the whole day to go! On cleaning days, I have time to "think" while I'm working, so this day, I was thinking about changes I'd been making in my life, good ones, and also some that are still being attempted, but whatever they were, my thoughts were weighing me down.

Do you ever just feel the devil present? Ever feel him trying many ways to get you down? Do you often let him?

Isaiah 26:3 "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."

This verse came to mind and was such an encouragement to me throughout the day! The struggles and trials of the day didn't magically disappear, but they were put at ease with this reminder that only He can give me peace. I can't myself figure out what to do or how things may work out, or whatever situation is weighing on my heart, but He is there - I just have to keep that "in mind"! :) Just wanted to encourage you to check your heart when getting ready for your day, just as you would do your hair. Let Jesus help you fix it just right so you can go about confidently and not have a Bad Heart Day!


  1. What a great reminder, Mary! Thanks! :-) Love u

  2. It does a mother's heart good as well to know that her child goes to the Lord for her own personal needs. Heb 13:5 is a great life verse for me... He will NEVER leave or forsake us... NEVER, we are never alone, He's already into tomorrow..(the Alpha and Omega)and in control. In the beginning of this verse it tells us to be content. We CAN be content and KNOW for sure that He won't ever leave us or disown us, nor forsake us... we are undeserving but we serve a Risen Saviour who died in our stead! Bless God! Love you honey, Mom
