There’s nothing I love more than waking up early on a Saturday morning, getting on my yoga mat (Yoga with Adriene is my go-to), followed by a cup of black coffee and a light breakfast. I love it. It’s literally like Christmas morning once a week. I get so much joy out of Saturday mornings. Except this morning was a strange exception. I’ve been looking forward to Saturday morning ALL WEEK! However, last night I couldn’t sleep. With my mind full of unfruitful thoughts, I tossed and turned until 2am, at which point I rose wide-eyed at 6:30am.
Laying in my bed frustrated and tired, I watched as the sunlight slowly crept in my bedroom. This morning I had a choice- start my day with the same unfruitful thoughts that kept me up all night, or start my morning energized with joy. I let my mind play with my emotions for about 30 more minutes until I had to grab hold of my thoughts and get out of bed. “This is my absolute favorite moment of every week; don’t let the enemy steal this moment from you.”
In a recent sermon I heard by Joyce Meyer she gave words of advice she received from her husband:
“Do what you can do about the things in your life you can do something about. Then when you cannot do anything about it, you cast it on God- and trust him. It’s OKAY TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE while you have a problem! Don’t waste another day.”
HELLO! Light bulb moment!! It’s okay to enjoy life! It’s OKAY! *take a deep breath in and exhale* It’s going to be okay…
So as I sit here in my bed with my post-yoga black coffee, I want to encourage anyone who woke up this morning with a heavy heart or a mind full of unfruitful thoughts, to find your happy place. Take a moment for you this morning!
This week I chose this verse that I’ve used as my mantra:
Colossians 3:2 NIV
“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things”
Now is your time to GET UP! LOOK UP! And find God’s grace in enjoying this moment. Go ahead- Treat Yo’Self!
Thank you for joining me in Finding Grace.
Enjoy the journey
