Devotional

Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:34

Today in Western Australia we have a public holiday.

When I was going through my illness these days would be difficult and I would fear anytime that I had to spend by myself.

The illness would get louder and the negative thoughts stronger. Not a good thing.

I don’t know about you but I used to not like days off, I didn’t know what to do. I would feel really anxious and restless, like it was not right to just have a day to yourself.

A day to do what you longed to do?

How selfish to have a day were you could do the things that you loved to do.

I found it really difficult to just switch of from my work, from my thoughts that had consumed me and controlled me.

How things have changed for me how things have changed for the better.

Let me encourage you that you can enjoy your days.

You can enjoy those days off and embrace the day.

You can do things that you love without feeling guilty.

Now I love time that I just get to spend and be creative.

I love those days were I just don’t have to leave the house and rush to the next thing to do.

I embrace these days with both hands.

I know that I need to have these days, I really do.

This is all about creating healthy boundaries for yourself.

What is one thing that you can do today to give back to yourself?

Start where you are at, maybe it’s 15 minutes for you?

Start there and be encouraged.

I am cheering you on.

Thursday Morning

Thursday Morning

thursdaymorning

For you have been a shelter for me.  A strong tower from the enemy. I will trust in the shelter of your wings.

Psalm 61:3-4

I love this scripture from Psalm 61:3-4, it provides a beautiful picture of how God cares for us and shelters us.

I had one of those mornings on Thursday. I was getting ready for work organising what I had to take and trying to remember to pack everything I needed for the day.

I was walking through a section of my house that is separated by curtains, well the next thing I knew the curtain rod had fallen and had hit me on the head.

In my rush to be ready I had accidently pulled on the curtain making it easy for the curtain rod to fall on me.

In that single moment fear gripped me, the thoughts that were running through my head were-

  • Ouch
  • Oh my goodness I don’t have time for concussion this morning.
  • Do I have a concussion?
  • I have to put the curtains and the curtain rod back up
  • Oh my gosh I need to get to work
  • My head is sore.

For that single moment fear had me in its sight.

Fear invited me, fear was doing its best to stop me from enjoying a beautiful day.

I made the decision that fear had no place here.

I felt the top of my head where the curtain rod had landed and a small lump was beginning to grow.

I was thinking no; I am strong I will be okay.

I was also thinking that I need to get to work.

I have a 40-minute drive to my work and I could not afford to be delayed anymore.

Then I couldn’t find my keys!

What!

I could feel the fear bubbling up, wanting to overtake me to stop me once again.

After about 5 minutes looking everywhere for my keys I found them.

Insert here a sigh of relief.

I was then out the door and driving to work.

I was fine, I was okay. So I did have a small lump on my head, but it was okay.

Fear-nil, Me-one.

How do you deal with those little interruptions?

How do you stop fear from controlling your day?

Will share more soon.
