When you are cast down and humbled, you will speak with confidence, And the humble person He will lift up and save.

Happy Friday! It’s great to have a holiday, but sometimes it means doing the same amount of work in less time. For me this week has been a roller coaster running out-of-control. Have you ever felt that way? Tuesday and Wednesday I worked thirteen hours. Tuesday and Thursday mornings were earlier than usual, because I took my grandson to school. So, my stress level was high this week. That is usually how it is when I’m tired. By yesterday morning, I was exhausted. One of our dogs was continuously barking and Landon didn’t want to go to school. When I finally put him in the car, he was almost in tears. So, all the way to the school I used my gloves as hand puppets while I was driving. Crisis averted! He went in laughing. Whew! At the end of the day, my daughter sent me the sweetest video (see below). So, all the stress was worth it. Life is like that sometimes. It seems to be spinning out of control, but God is still there with us. In the end, the trip is worth it.
Do you ever feel like you are just going through the motions of life? Do you feel like you are just jumping from one “I have to do” to another? Do you ever wonder if you’d be missed, if you didn’t show up? I was listening and singing along to a Matthew West song on the way to work this morning, and I made a mental note to use the song in today’s post. Sometimes my mental notes get misfiled, but this time I actually remembered. The video below with the same song says it all. As the lyrics state “your life is a gift” and every day is a new opportunity. “The lights are shining on you today.” What will you do? Get up today and make a difference! The smallest of efforts can bring about huge change. Remember if you are having a low and humbling day, you will be lifted up later. The rewards will be amazing!
I hope your Friday is fabulous! I encourage you to make a difference in the world today. God bless you.
