3 of my gal pal co-workers and I have decided to start doing a little 15 minute devotional on Tuesday & Thursday mornings before the hustle and bustle of our work day begins. This might sound a little "preachy" but I just wanted to share this with you because it helped me today. I know I am in NO position to be giving our spiritual guidance. My life is the definition of a hot mess right now, but if it helps me then it might help someone else.
We are just doing the free YouVersion app of the Joyce Meyer's Promises For Your Everyday Life. I've mentioned here before that I am not the most spiritual person you will ever find. I am sometimes ashamed to admit that you will not find me in church every Sunday, or even most Sundays. But I am a firm believer and a child of God. I make mistakes and He forgives me, one of those being not being a close enough follower during the good times. I am going to try my best to make a conscious effort this year to grow my relationship with God.
Today's devotion spoke to that subject exactly and it just struck a chord with me so I wanted to share that thought with you. We always turn to Him when times are tough in our lives, when we need comfort or support; we undoubtedly know He is there. But do you talk to God when you are happy, excited, anxious or complacent? As a girl who has overcome so many obstacles in my life, I take comfort in a higher power who is always in control. Keyword: always. He is in control of the good & the bad.
Helpful tip: Instead of talking through a situation today with yourself or your best friend - talk it through with God. Let go and let God take that control. All my Type A girls know this one is rough, but even just making that effort will help relieve so much of our stress.
