Can I let you in on a secret? After my quiet time with God, I start most days on a hopeful note, but then I often need a mental makeover by 5:00 pm. Work and ministry responsibilities, email, errands, housework, and phone calls wear me out, and I need an attitude overhaul by late afternoon.
Negativity knocks at my door. Before I know it, I’m fretting over all the unfinished items on my list. Then I stress over what I’m going to cook for dinner, as if it were an issue of epic proportions.
Some days worry sets in, and I listen to a replay of all my doubts and fears about the future. Unfortunately, my thoughts often affect my behavior. (Let me tell you, it’s not pretty.)
