I woke this morning before the alarm went off thinking about today
and all the things that need to be done
~ changeover meeting
~ all staff meeting
~ pick up boys from school (two trips)
~ boys to swim tests
~ house meeting to check in with the boys
~ watch the Survivor finale, something the boys and I have been enjoying
together the past few months
~ write daily reports
and then for me personally
~ shower & get ready for the day,
even put on makeup, something I haven’t done in a long while
~ quiet time and how I want it to be
and once again God met me right where I am
I grabbed my coffee and banana,
sent Ron to the front porch so I could have some quiet
and opened my devotional
is the word for the day!!
And I took this away
God you are full of compassion, graciousness, abundant in mercy and truth,
You are my strength when I can no longer hold myself up
And because You are these things to me I can be these things in others lives.
Closing in this
As I prepare to meet the day I am encouraged to be all that God wants me to be.
To consider all who I come into contact with today may be dealing with something I have no clue about BUT with the Lord I can be an
encourager and a listener
~ doing for others for what they need and not for what I can get out of it.
And then this came across my Facebook memories
and I am encouraged for today I can choose to do the things I need to do for myself
~ eat breakfast (coffee and a banana)
~ drink lots of water, goal is 100 to 125 oz
~ extend grace to myself as I extend grace to others
Most of all be the woman God has created me to be!!!
How about you?
Do you have any goals for today?
It doesn’t have to be giant grand goal, just a goal to accomplish one thing today.
I would love to hear from each of you reading
and be able to encourage you along life’s journey.
