cuz you had a bad day


You know those days where things don't seem to be going your way?
Where you miss every green light and are running late to catch the bus.
When you are ten steps away from the traffic light and it changes to walk before you get there and you know you have to wait because you can't make it across the intersection in 15 seconds. 
Where your professor is late giving you a reference form that's due the next day; 
and you stayed up till 12:30 in the morning finishing the assignment, and can't drive back downtown to turn it in on Friday, but now you might have to "find time". 
(maybe this doesn't make sense because it's a really long story.)
And when a girl in class, that you thought was your friend, again starts talking bad about you again. 
And when your car that you've had since you were 16 gets destroyed in an accident because a guy wasn't paying attention at the traffic light?
Well, that was my day yesterday. 

There were so many times yesterday when I prayed to my Heavenly Father and asked him to help me find peace with what was going on. I knew I couldn't control it. 
It wasn't my fault that all these horrible things were happening to me. 

All I know is that it was a test. 
A test of faith and love. 
For now I don't know the meaning of yesterday's tests, however my testimony of prayer has become even stronger than before. 
During my classes I was focused and felt at peace with all the things that had happened earlier that morning. 
All because I had prayed. 
And at the end of the day, when all is said and done, I felt good. 
I can laugh about the situation now. 
And I'm proud of how I handled everything. 
I didn't freak out, I didn't cuss, I might have started crying a little bit, but no one was around to see it. 

I'm so very grateful for the strength my Heavenly Father gave me yesterday. 
I know that He is always there for me when I need Him, 
all I need to do is ask. 

I hope your day was better than mine, but I also hope that you have felt peace in your life after you've prayed too. 

Have a good weekend friends! 

(A post in honor of my car coming up next week, I'm sure gonna miss her. )



  1. Believe it or not I didn't come to the realization that I am in charge of how I feel until 4 years ago. That may seem strange but I never looked at life that way. My husband was the one to make me realize that I alone have to power to my feelings. I still struggle with it sometimes and I blame others for my mood, but after some time of feeling like crap I think about it again and realize that I had the power to change my mood from the start. I'm sorry you had a tough week but I like and admire your attitude toward everything.

  2. This was a good thing for me to read this week after a hard one as well. Thanks! Sorry about your week! xo!

  3. I am so sorry your day was bad. BUT I admire you for your strength. I love that you have faith and let that strengthen you.

    I have you in my thoughts and prayers.

    XO Lourdes

  4. I'm sorry you had a bad day. I said a prayer for you. Don't bother with the girl who you thought was your friend, she isn't worth your time if she is going to behave that way.

  5. Beautifully written! I totally agree and believe in the power of prayer. Hope your weekend was lovely and your week is going great! XOXOOX
