You know alot of times we just wake up, put some coffee on, shower, brush our teeth and hair, grab a quick bite to eat whether at home or a restaurant, check the phone or computer for texts and emails, grab the keys and out the door. That’s the beginning to our morning, in a hurry, stressed and burden with alot of assignments and task that need to be completed before the day ends. Either that or we wake up and do the same daily routine but along the way we moan, groan and complain. Sigh! “Another day another dollar, back to work all over again. I can’t wait for Friday.”
I can definitely rasie my hand and testify to this. I have been guilty of this numerous times. I start the day off in a panic and it ends in a panic. Start the day of rushing and worrying. End the day rushing and worrying. Start the day of bad and it ends bad. See when you do this everyday it makes you want to hit the pause button on life. It becomes too much for the mind, heart, body and soul. I don’t even think a vacation would solve what is precieved and felt.
However, I noticed that when I wake up the first thing that I do is set my mind on Yahuah (God) first thanking him for another day that I am alive. Showing thanks and gratitude for having the opportunity to live again. To be able to open my eyes and do right. Correct my wrongs. Appreciate that I have a wife, a family. Thankful for the car and the apartment. Allow me to be a blessing to somebody in need of a kind gesture or word. Then I check my phone, my computer, ESPN, shower, etc. I noticed that the day goes by much smoother. Don’t get me wrong we live in a world that is full of people so somebody will still try to try you and disturb your peace. But I set that foundation earlier and whatever they may say or do want have any profound effect. It won’t matter.
What I am saying is that when you wake up set that time (it don’t have to be and too long a couple of minutes will do just fine) aside for you and Yahuah (God) to give him thanks. Because he is the reason that you are waking up everyday. It’s not because of the alarm clock. Ask him what direction shall you go in. How can you be a blessing unto others. You know in my twenty-six years I am realizing that we are always on the go. Just a fast pace society. We don’t have time for others nor do we have time for ourselves. We are always busy. And because of this we become burdened down, wore out and mentally drained.
This prohibits us from being effective in our life and someone else life. So we go on vacations or take time off from life to rejuvenate. But we return feel 50% better. Feeling 50% able to deal with life’s problems, task and situations.
So what is that rejuvenation that we need??
Well the word says,
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
So what I am trying to say is that 1) wake up with God on your mind and hearts. 2) Make today’s and others days problems secondary. 3) Seek Yahuah (God) wisdom, love, grace, mercy and care. Ask how can you be of service today in someone else life? Put others before you. 4) Appreciate, be thankful that you are alive and well. 5) Walk in that joy and peace knowing that you gave all your troubles, burdens and worries to the right one. Remember no matter what task or situation that you are faced with. HE GOT YOUR BACK.
