Wow. It’s early. So sorry to be a wimp, I realize most people get up at 6:30, but not me. I’ve been fighting it since I was little. I remember, I used to get my clothes for the next day on before I went to bed so that I could get up later…And now, I have a legitimate reason to not get up early. My overall health depends on about 12 hours of sleep a night. While I’ve grown to accept it, it’s obviously hard to stay feeling well. It’s a lot of discipline to stay well, but at least now I know what I need and can make it happen. 🙂
Anyway, yesterday and today I had to be up at 6:30 to take Selah to school because my dear Jack is out of town for work. It was nice to have the extra hours; got more laundry and dishes done than I usually do in a week! I also had some time to get out my guitar and play a little. That led to me getting a little house concert set up at my friends’ house, to play Christmas songs. So, that’s been nice… but the cloud hanging over my head of fatigue and loopiness, not so nice.
I’ve also had a little more time with the Lord. God convicted me this week of putting working out before time with Him. I wasn’t just prioritizing my time wrongly, it was in my heart, too. For about 8 months, I’ve had all these changes to my diet and life so that I can get better…but with all the changes, I started to gain a little weight, and because that’s always been such a battle, I felt I needed to bring it back to the forefront of my mind again. But it has led to such bondage; anytime I put anything in the forefront of my mind over knowing Jesus, that’s what happens! So, it has been wonderful to place this part of my life where it belongs (on the radar, but not front and center) and remember the One Thing I am living for.
So…kind of randomness today…but I thought I’d share. Have a happy day, and let’s turn our eyes upon Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith!
