Sick of Shoulda & Banana Bread Cookies

2 Peter 1:2 (nirv)

May more and more grace and peace be given to you. May they come to you as you learn more about God and about Jesus our Lord.


I woke up today and the “shoulda’s” were in full force.

I should have meal prepped hubby’s lunch last night so I could have jumped right into work this morning.
I should have gotten up the first time I hit snooze instead of the tenth.
I should put away the really comfortable underwear I wear too often and replace them with the sexier ones.

Is anyone else so sick of shoulda? I celebrate a Savior who died for me, exactly as I am. Jesus didn’t die on the cross for the girl who has it all together. He didn’t die incase I make the changes He wants to see.

He died for the girl with the comfortable underwear and the girl with the sexy ones.
He died for the girl who meal preps right after attending church on Sunday, and the girl who never makes it to church and meal preps 20 minutes after she was supposed to leave for work.
He died for the early risers, the late sleepers, and the ones who lie awake all night.
He died so that stereotypes don’t matter, Superwoman can hang up her cape, and Cinderella can switch out those heels that were killing her feet for a pair of Nikes.
He died so that I can live free – we all can. So why aren’t we?

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready.


What are some of the “shoulda’s” you’ve been caught up in focusing on today?


Surrender those things you listed in your journal to the Lord, and ask for His peace.
