My moods are cyclical. However, I have to keep functioning in my role as a wife and mother. God made me this way, yet his Word doesn't seem to allow for me to act badly because that's how I feel. How do I cope? What must I do to manage these emotions?
1. Pray. God promises to supply all I need. He will give me the added strength. Sometimes I forget to ask though. God reminds me that I do not have because I did not ask.
2. Exercise. The last thing I want to do is exercise, but the sunshine and fresh air boosts my mood. It also gives me the little bit of added energy I need to finish the day. I force myself to get out and move.

3. Rest. Sometimes my body and mind just needs a break. Perhaps God uses these few days to remind me to relax. It's time to stop going in circles. I'll have more energy and be ready to tackle life again after a brief time of refreshment and renewal.
