I overslept this morning and missed my writing time for this blog post.
I overslept this morning and didn’t read my Bible.
I overslept this morning and didn’t meditate or say my normal prayers.
I overslept this morning and didn’t read that book that I committed to read for 10 minutes a day.
I overslept this morning but I received some rest that has been hard to come by lately.
I overslept this morning but enjoyed a fantastic, drama filled, exciting World Series game last night.
I overslept this morning but spent dinner last night with great coworkers enjoying a meal and playing games.
I overslept this morning but rode a mechanical bull yesterday and lasted longer than some college students.
I overslept this morning but had a good conversation with my Mom last night.
I overslept this morning but ended last night with these words,
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.
The point is, God needs us to commit time to him and to design our days to make space for him to work on our mind and heart but he can still operate through the ordinary and still blesses through activities that may not be on the “religious” list. Give yourself grace when your Growing Up plans fall through and appreciate the wide range of God-moments that are present in good days like I had yesterday.
