Woke up this morning, feeling relieved to see another day, but mind resisting the waves of tasks that come in to invade and away, then suddenly comes that recurring flood that I call…..Sunday.
Body tired cause once again thought I could cheat my circadian rhythm, into thinking I could only sleep five hours, battle of the mind, brain schism, right versus left brain then back to realism.
Just the adversary trying to get me to doubt my ability that the Almighty Father has instilled in me to aid in the execution of each and every task with precision and agility.
“So what’s my motivation” I thought to myself.
Could it be that my children need me to get out of this warm & cozy bed? Not ready yet, doubts swirling, body aches, brain dead; in creeps a still voice whispering, “Fear not, don’t dread!”
So I choose to listen to it instead
Maybe it’s my morning prayers that beg to be recited, that give me wisdom to conquer spiritual battles, and if failed could leave me over-excited and yes, ……even indicted
Then I put into the forefront of my mind that those that came to be at some time or were born blind, would gladly wake up eager to not only read, but be extremely inclined To engulf the beauty around them that we so often think…….. “never mind”
What’s my motivation?
Do I get up today for that 9 to 5 that’s mos def not in the 5 year plan to keep us alive, not to mention help our children to propel forward and thrive
Then, yet again, that still voice said, “Rise and see what marvelous things await you today
Let Me worry about the tasks, the problems and your pay. Each time you awake, see it as a present or even a bouquet.
From Me my child
It’s up to us to figure out how to use that present in order to be of service to Him
and a blessing to others just like the bouquet of flowers, petals and stem
He is my perpetual motivation, for without Him, I surely would cease to exist
The still voice has and always will be my Creator urging me to persist
Thank you Heavenly Father for your mercy, this gift, and the bouquet
and all of the many blessings from the past and future ones you are sending my way
