Mornings can be rough, but don't give up! *Music Video*
Everyday I wake up, asking God to show me more of who he is through his love, mercy and grace. Every morning is different. Some mornings I read the word to get me started and others I am running behind so I'll put on worship and pray as I get ready.
Soon as I am feeling good, optimistic, strong, I then approach my all time challenge of the day. Getting my babe ready for school! My 4 year old daughter is a TRUE blessing, HOWEVER my friends, this is a true challenge every morning! After fighting, wrestling and manipulating my daughter to obey me HAHA, I then feel as if I am not where I need to be spiritually. I'm like GOD, why have you allowed me to go through such a rough morning and I'm trying to walk in the spirit, I am trying to be kind as I fight with a 4 year old who tells me what to do. LOL.
Why Lord? Why all of a sudden I am feeling discouraged and miserable?!
As I drive to work solo, that is the time for me to reflect on why I allow these small moments to take over my thinking and my spirit. I know who I am in Christ Jesus, I know I am one of his righteous seeds, I know that he loves me and gave me a beautiful daughter to raise, teach, lead and be friends with. So why am I feeling discouraged?!
The promises that GOD has promised me in his word I must hold on too. Here are a few that I found this morning that gave me strength.
God has a plan for your life. I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for. – Jeremiah 29:11
Hard times won’t last forever. I consider that what we suffer at this present time cannot be compared at all with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. – Romans 8:18
Don’t give up. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. – 2 Corinthians 4:8-10
I then began to just ask God to help me fall MORE in love with him. The more I am in love with him the more my faith gets stronger, his promises become more of a reality and I am willing to truly walk in his will! I then began to renew my mind and walk in his spirit and be guided by his Holy Spirit in all my actions!!! God is real and all he desires is you going to him, admitting you need him and he is right there to help! I promise!
I want to encourage you today. Do not go a day without admitting to God you need him, you want your heart to burn for him because when it is burning for him, its burning for others, you are able to spread his love and even when it is a rough time, you can overcome it and move with his motions! He is there for you! Always!
This song truly helped me this morning! Hope it helps you!
