I'm wrecked today. It's been an absolutely hectic week physically and emotionally. I'm wrecked from migraines caused by the crazy Calgary chinook weather, from lack of sleep, from one family's terrible pain, from one person's broken knee, from moving from one agenda to the next, from the flourecent lights in my office, and from a really nasty bowl of raisin bran last night. I think that was the most rotten raisin I've ever chewed.
I'm not trying to complain… I'm just trying to say that the gas is leaking out of my tank and I'm worried somebody might throw a cigarette into it. Today is not a day I want to work hard. But work is a fact of life. I'd love to call in wrecked. I'd love to go back to bed. I'd love to ignore everything and everyone for a day and just sleep and not serve anything or anyone. But there is work to be done. There are people to care for today. There are responsibilities I need to fulfill and should not neglect. There are things that I should do for my own lingering good too. There are certain items that must be done today so that my kids are taken care of and so that my job requirements are accomplished.
So here's a question. In the state of mind I'm in right now, how do I live out the following verse today?
Romans 12:9 = Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically.
