Sure, I can go through my list of what has NOT been working (speaking rashly, going to bed way too late turned not getting up early to go running, getting places on time, being on the computer too much, and the list goes on), but where does that get me? Usually…discouraged, frustrated, trying to do it myself. Not a good place.
So, in the midst of my crying out, God gave me a little reminder tucked away in my journal written in orange highlighter:
And that,right there, is where I’m choosing to turn my focus today.
What’s working: journaling, days at work, seeing joy in the little things, adventures
From here, I’m going to keep finding out what’s working, do some more of that, fill in the gaps where I can, and mostly lean on Him to give me the strength because He sure does tell me that I can do nothing without Him.
And while I’m at it since I’m a words girl…I’ll keep singing:
“Cause even in the dark you can still see the light”
“I don’t want to go one more day without your all consuming passion inside of me. Just okay is not enough.”
“It’s joy unspeakable”
“Hey now, this is my desire, consume me like a fire cause I just want something beautiful to touch me.”
So, how are you doing today? What’s working for you? What are you listening to?
