Whatever. My alarm went off at 6:15 this morning… and as I hit snooze with a bad attitude, this verse rushed into my mind. I asked God to help me have nine more minutes to get my mind in the right frame, letting this verse pour over my thoughts as I rested.
I didn’t enjoy the alarm any better when it went off at 6:24. But this time, knowing I had to get out of bed one way or another, God’s word pointed me in the right direction.
When I’m tired, I get grumpy. The problems in the world, including my own flaws, failings, and festering worries, can mock my mind.
But I choose today to see whatever is good. I choose to trust God enough to consider… and to pursue… and to place my hope in whatever is true.
