Do You Need a Reset Button?

The other day, I had a bad day. I don't have them very often... but this particular day was bad. Nothing was going the way I wanted it, and my attitude reflected it. I was taking it out on my son and hubby. It wasn't pretty. I remembered the song, "Bad Day" that was popular a few years back.

I just wanted to wallow in the fact that I was having a bad day.

I even talked about it on Facebook when I mentioned I needed a reset button on the day so that I could do things over again and not have such a bad day.

A reset button. That's a good idea.

A friend then reminded me that God allows us to take our failures of the day, lay them at the cross and take the grace that God freely offers us to continue.

What a good reminder!! I obviously needed an attitude change.

Whenever a bad day strikes, remember that God gives us grace to get through because of Jesus' work on the cross. His grace is the only reset button we need! His grace will carry us through until the next day when we can experience his brand new mercies.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
    his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    “therefore I will hope in him.”
Lamentations 3:22-24

How have you been experiencing God's grace lately?


  1. I love your title! I need a reset button many days myself! I've been experiencing his grace lately because even though I've been super busy this week, he's giving JOY, it must be a supernatural thing because I usually don't like being THIS busy!

  2. Thank you for this post. I think I needed my reset button pushed. We've been traveling since Sept 16, and FINALLY are back in our host country as of last Friday. Saturday was spent unpacking, Sunday we were at church for their anniversary celebration - thankfully it was only 4 hours long with a break for lunch! Still have some reorganizing and cleaning to do, but I'm thankful a a small opportunity to get some extra rest!

  3. Amen!

    Love the honesty and beautiful truth behind this post.
