Day 201: Something to Think About

We're tired in our home. Husband struggles with his work schedule, and we struggle to support him in it.

Sometimes we're just not ourselves- at least our best selves. You see, maybe the sleep deprivation is really revealing more about who we really are because our guards are down. We can't hide the sinfulness of our hearts as easily when our nerves are raw and our patience is thin. I'm not able to cover up as easily when I get irritated or annoyed. I'm not as good at putting on a front or lightening a mood.

It's something to think about.

Lord, forgive my lack of self-control over my emotions.
Forgive me when I am not the woman that I should be. Please cover me in your grace.
