Good morning! At least I hope and pray it was.....it was for me despite the dart of laziness the devil wants to keep tossing to me this week every morning. He throws the "sleepy" dart at me, you know the one, the one where he keeps you in that nice, warm, comfortable bed even though the alarm went off about 10 times already that morning......yeah......fun....
Well that's the battle I faced this morning, I didn't wanna get ready for work, didn't wanna put in the effort to look nice (wanted my pjs that reminded me of my cozy bed), and I certainly didn't wanna do my daily devotions. But I pushed through with God's strength. He got me up and allowed to get everything done I needed to do this morning, even with an added blessing:
It might not be the best picture or the nicest sunrise I have seen at my house, but it's still a sunrise that God painted for me this morning. If I had stayed in bed I would have missed this opportunity because I noticed the view while doing my devotions. It's a beautiful reminder that God can even take my temptations (no matter how great or small) and turn them around, point them in HIS direction, and create a masterpiece unlike any other. So seek to be His canvas, seek to be that sunrise!
"O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;"
