When I got up this morning, I had a few things on my mind. I had a to-do list, boxes, kids, a boat load of laundry, and a treadmill that all seemingly, were looking at me wanting immediate attention. But instead of trying to tackle everything at once aimlessy….I’ve decided to take a different approach.
This approach seems to be what I always wanted to do but sometimes fail to do…….put God first. Putting God first or saying that He is the head of my life can sometimes seem cliche-ish to me b/c is sounds soooo good but my actions or choices can reveal that I put myself, my comfort, and/or my desires before anything and everyone else (please tell me that I’m not alone??!!!).
So, instead of getting my favorite pen and my to-do list, I decided to get my bible, my journal, and a specific book. And when I finished reading and meditating on God’s Word, I felt so encouraged and so peaceful. And the only words that were written in my journal for today are “I can, I can, I can”!
What’s the reasoning behind my new winning spirit you ask? It’s Jesus……..I can b/c He lives in me.
