Sunday Thought

Yesterday, a friend felt failure.  She cleans condos on Saturdays and she wasn’t able to complete the job.  Her body and spirit failed.

“Accept each day exactly as it comes to you. By that, I mean not only the circumstances of your day but also the condition of your body.  Your assignment is to trust Me absolutely, restin in My sovereignty and faithfulness.

On some days, your circumstances and your physical condition feel out of balance: The demands on you seem far greater than your strength.  Days like that present a choice between two alternatives—giving up or relying on Me.  Even if you wrongly choose the first alternative, I will not reject you.  You can turn to Me at any point, and I will help you crawl out of the mire of discouragement.  I will infuse My strength into you moment by moment, giving you all that you need for this day.  Trust Me, by relying on My empowering Presence.” Psalm 42:5; 2 Corinthians 13:4; Jeremiah 31:25 – Jesus is Calling by Sarah Young

This was yesterday’s devotional.  We will always feel failure at some point in our day or weeks.  These scriptures remind us to rely on God in each failure.  To accept each step regardless of the fall. Accepting that we can’t complete something hurts.  We don’t want to admit that we fail.  We need to remember that we are not perfect, and we can’t do it all.

Encourage those when you can.

Blessings.

Seat Belts

I hadn’t flown since I had gastric sleeve surgery. I used to have to get a seat belt extender when I flew. I would always get a seat next to the window so I could squeeze as much of myself next to the window as I could. I still felt as though I was spilling over to the next seat (and I am certain I was).

David and I flew to Las Vegas for our anniversary/birthdays last week. I was blown away sitting down and fastening the seat belt. I cried when I fastened the belt.

I didn’t feel squeezed in the seat. In fact, I was in the middle seat, and didn’t feel as though I needed to lean over to one side or the other. I had six inches of the seat belt left over when I belted it!!!! Do you see?!

Tears. Non-scale Victory. I may have gained some weight back, but this feeling was incredible. Typing this today, I am tearing up again as the feeling was so strong. Something so small and insignificant to so many, meant so much to me.

So…what victory have you had lately?

Feeling incredible. Blessings.
