Have you ever had one of those days? You know, the kind that feel like you are falling off your rhino raft face first into the water.
The kind where you just want to cry because water went up your nose and stings really bad.
I have been traveling pretty much since the second week of April. Usually just for a night or two, but most of the trips required some seat time on a plane. By the time I got home Friday night, I pretty much wanted to cry. But, I rarely do that. And for those who have been special enough to see me cry, know it isn’t pretty.
When flying the friendly skies, I have been trying to maximize my time by catching up on my reading. I would catch up on reading for work. So, yes I read about poop a lot. Sometimes I would read those thought provoking books on how to become a better leader, more influential, or more driven. But, lately I have been needing to work on my relationship with Christ. So, I picked up a few devotionals to read and meditate on while away from home. Nothing fills the soul when you are missing your family and questioning why you are working so hard on a career when you kids need you at home too, like a little time with the Good Lord. A daily prayer with Beth Moore or the One Year Bible daily devotions have been keeping me focused while away.
So, I am trying to stay in the routine of doing a daily devotional now that my travel schedule has decide to take a break. The twenty minutes in the morning before I head out on my 60 mile commute to work gives me something to reflect on each day.
Our sermon series this summer is also on Love is… The sermons are focusing on just a few verses, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. The sermons have been so good I am listening to them again when I need to be reminded to remain patient, or kind, or not to envy.
Today, I am reminded that I have so much to be thankful for in my life.
Of course I am thankful for all the parents and grandparents of children shown as well, but they don’t look as cute in pictures;)
So, what are you thankful for? Any good advice a daily devotionals as well?
