I woke up this morning with an achy body and a slow mind.
“Ugh. Is it really time to start the day?”
That’s how I felt. There was no anxiousness or excitement to get my day going.
I pushed myself through my morning responsibilities and routines and prodded the kids multiple times to get out of bed.
Soon after they awoke, my role as the pony motor and task master set in.
Stop doing this.
Stop doing that.”
Fighting a good dose of attitudes and laziness, I was slowly making progress in my home when the announcement came:
“The toiled is plugged and is about to overflow….”
“Oh, great!” …. Just what I needed.
As I plunged my life away with no success, my thoughts spiraled downward. I came to the conclusion:
Life is less than glorious.
Sure, there are times when life feels absolutely wonderful, but there are a lot of times when life feels hard and lacks glory.
It is during these often, earthly moments of life that a choice is put before us. Will we choose life or death?
When life is less than glorious, we must make the choice to persevere, do what’s right, be thankful, think positively, trust God, and be joyful.
Does your life feel less than glorious?
Don’t let it get the best of you.
Instead make the best of it.
And let the God of peace rule in your hearts…
and be thankful.
