Off Balance

Today I woke up at 1:00 o'clock this morning which gave me four hours of sleep. I started my morning talking to my Father, God, then read a few devotions and I was off to a good start. I have had my coffee and started writing about one of my future devotions, I also started studying about this devotion and well times up. I am trying a new morning routine. I received some really good advice about setting a time limit to what I do. God knows I can get carried away sometimes.

This morning as I sat here typing my little heart out I was thinking to myself I am so tired I can't even think right now. I have typed, deleted, and hit backspace for about forty-five minutes now. I will tell you what is off balance and that is my brain. I have to say my sleep pattern is way off balance, but honestly I don't want it to change. God wakes me up very early so we can spend our mornings together and I ask Him what to study and write about. With this in mind (what little is functioning right now) I will get my rest so I can follow His instruction for the day.

Before I go to sleep I want you to know one of the devotions I read is "A Balanced Life Is Not the Impossible Dream" written by Mary Southerland. I absolutely love the way she writes! Anyway before I get off track I hope you read it because this is something I loved about it and there is so much more. She says, "A busy life is not necessarily a productive life." I totally get this. Busy going nowhere fast. She also says, "A balanced life is a powerful life."

I hope God blesses you with the balance you need for a powerful life.

Let's Get Salty

Salt is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? You must have the qualities of salt among yourselves and live in peace with each other. Mark 10:50 Salt is used

Rejoice In the Word

I rejoice in your word like one who discovers a great treasure. Psalm 119:162 This morning I read that we should rejoice while suffering in all kinds of trials. Honestly at that point all I could say

AMEN!! Man there are some days I am so busy from sun up to sun down! And then I’m back in bed tired and burned out and I tell Eddie I feel like I didn’t accomplish anything🤦🏽‍♀️! I call my morning routines my Morning Joys😊. Because it’s what brings me joy. I pray, I journal, I drink 20oz of water, take my vitamins and read my devotions. Then I get up and join Eddie for coffee and conversation. I work on being mindful on what my day needs to produce! But that’s always easier said then done. I am certainly going to read Mary Southerland. She sounds like someone I will love💓
