Theoretically thinking, a nap sounds amazing. Yeah, no…easier thought than done.
Today it seems like I’m the ‘iron’ piece in the Monopoly game, except the ‘wrinkles’ under me are actually on the game board of Life. And it’s not really a game. It is real life and the spinner is out of control.
Thoughts, emotions and even prayers ~ are all over the board. Jesus, won’t cha puh-leeeez take the wheel?
The emojis of my exhausted mind and fatigued body are not lol’ing.
Since doing all things natural is the way I try to roll, I concocted a smoothie adding a new kratom strain that is supposed to be a Mood Booster. Guessing now that a double or triple dose was called for.
It must be one of those good times to just be thankful for my many blessings, naming them 1 by 1. Just? Isn’t that what I should be doing all the time?
It’s no big surprise that my devo this morning was right there where it needed to be. God’s eye is on the sparrow and it most certainly is on me and you. He knows the day we are all going to have before we ever barely make it to the bathroom. Suppose the things He’s showing us and saying to us might even be a forewarning? Day 42 of Seeing the Unseen by Randy Alcorn could’ve been my sign. I even scribbled a few nuggets of it into my journal, like:
“I want to stay in the habit of ‘glancing’ at my problems and ‘gazing’ at the Lord” ~ Joni Eareckson Tada.
and from 2 Corinthians 4:16-18,
“So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.”
(I added a couple verses and quoted the Message here cuz it was more fun talking about potatoes and a celebration both in the same sentence!)
Together let’s strive to tread on the heights with the feet of a deer. The Sovereign Lord does give us strength and we know that He is near. You and I need only to call on Him.
Thanks for sharing my day. I hope you’ll share something of yours with me…and sleep well, my friends!
