Thanks for joining in on this month’s challenge!
Are some of these small changes feeling too hard already? If so, I want to encourage you to not overthink them. So often, I’m guilty of overthinking it. The point of these healthy changes is that they become a regular habit for us. That we just DO them!
Can’t fit it all into the morning because you sleep a different schedule than most? That’s okay! Do them as you can. Today I won’t delve into each of the areas. Just remember we’re:
- Reading a chapter a day in Proverbs, coinciding with the date.
- Eating a healthy breakfast.
- Getting ourselves ready for the day.
- Starting our chores early, including making our bed. Click here for a morning routine.
- Finding some time for fresh air and exercise.
This morning’s Bible reading is Proverbs 3, and this is my long-time favorite passage from this chapter. I chose the Message version to share here today:
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
When life gets complicated, are you one of those people (like me) who thinks they can figure everything out on their own? One thing I’ve learned (the hard way) over the years is that, I may never understand what I’m going through or why I’m going through it, but God has a purpose.
My job is to trust Him. My job is to listen for His voice. My job is to seek His wisdom and follow His lead.
In doing so, I can know with certainty that I’m trusting in Him, and that I’m on the right track.
Do you trust God with your day today? It’s a choice you can make that will change the way you think about things. Do you trust that He loves you? That He has your best interest in mind? Because He does.
I want to encourage you today to give him your day. It’s amazing what happens when we see ourselves as stewards of what He has already blessed us with. Trust Him. With all your heart.
