Do you ever have days when you really don’t want to get out of bed? Days when you wake up and the thought of all you have to do is just so overwhelming that you’re not sure where to start. Maybe your list has sub-lists and your sub-lists have sticky notes. Or there are issues you don’t really want to deal with. Circumstances that are more than you can handle. Emotions that are overwhelming. Maybe words that need to be spoken or hurts that need to be mended.
On days like that I wish I had this verse painted or stenciled in a pretty font on the wall that is opposite of my bed so that I’d see it when I wake up. I’d open my eyes and read:
The Lord is with you.” Luke 1:28
The Lord, your GOD is with YOU!!!!!
What list could I not prioritize and commit to Him, knowing that He’s with me and His plans will be accomplished?
What troubles could I not face if I remembered that God’s favor rests on me, even when others don’t – and that if He is FOR me then who can be against me?
What words could not be spoken in love, for the purpose of building others up according to their needs?
No matter what your day looks like or how you feel when you wake up, even if it’s not painted on your wall, let God engrave it on your heart. I’m praying that you’ll hear the angels whisper as you wake:
The Lord is with YOU.
