clouds gently disperse
exposing the brilliant sun’s
I had a cloud hanging over me this week. I got up one morning and didn’t feel like doing anything. Tired, and lacking energy, I felt like staying in bed all day. My husband made up a wonderful word to describe my “funk”- moopy… a lovely combination of mopey and moody…If I had let my thoughts stay there, it most definitely would have been a less than stellar day. But I got up, went through the normal morning routine, and prayed. I prayed a lot. Honestly, I didn’t really even feel like doing that, either.
Fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out- Romans 12:2
Even though a cloud was hanging over me, I knew His light was shining bright behind it. I have to remember to hold tight to Him and not be lead by my emotions.
Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it- Romans 12:2
What does He want from me? Obedience.
To keep pressing on.
To trust Him completely- even when I don’t see the light.
To take everything I routinely do and offer it to Him as an act of worship.
And you know what happened? I got more done that day than I had in a long time! And before I knew it, the cloud went away and He was shining brighter than ever.
Lord, I am grateful for an extra dose of Your grace and the strength on those days when I am not “feeling” it. Help me to focus on You- in spite of my circumstances, and to praise You at all times. May my eyes look up to You, and may everything I do bring You glory!
