Some days we feel like we are on top of the world! Everyone is on mission first thing in the morning. We get the kids to school on time. We actually get to work with a few minutes to spare. Everything seems to be in forward motion.
Some days it feels like the whole world is sitting on our shoulders. The alarm didn’t go off…or we slept through it! We find out a school project is due today and our child is having a meltdown…or we are!! Everything that can go wrong, seems to do just that! What do you do? What CAN you do? Ever say…I just want to go back to bed. Hide under the covers!
Whether you are hanging tough….or barely hanging on…the ONE thing that can change our outlook on the day is turning our mind and our heart toward God. Regardless of the amount of time you have to actually sit in His presence at the start of your day…even if you have to multi-task because you overslept…pause and breathe in deep. Thank God for helping you to even function. Ask Him to help you focus and take today one step at a time. Even when things are hurried, flurried and scurried…and especially when nothing before you seems to make sense, God is in control and He won’t leave you to figure it all out by yourself.
Romans 8:28 (CEV) tells us, “We know that God is always at work for the good of everyone who loves Him. They are the ones God has chosen for His purpose.” Don’t miss this thought…that God is at work. You set out to do what you can and watch for God to do what only He can do.
