Sometimes there are days like this; no motivation and many things to do. You want to take the day off, but you can’t. Some things will not wait until tomorrow. Deadlines and duties dictate our priorities, regardless of how we feel. It doesn’t make any difference whether you feel good or not. Deadlines win. Pulling yourself together, and putting other things aside, is the call of the day.
Every priority in life should have God’s approval. Knowing the Lord’s leadership and doing it are not always the same; life and eternity would be different if they were.
How do we get life values in line with the Bible? We often want our way, regardless of what we know is in the good book. That’s one of the many choices the Lord allows us to make. He permits even the wrong ones. That’s OK if we learn from them. Bad choices are tough lessons that we will never forget. Hopefully, the reprimand is unforgettable and keeps us from repeating them. Reading and obeying the written word is an easier lesson to learn. Applying biblical truths saves us a lot of trouble.
Mistakes become road maps to wrong destinations. Some of life’s toughest lessons can be avoided by praying first. The kind that asks for directions and waits for God’s shining light to reveal the correct path. Life would be sweeter if we would wait on him and follow his advice. Our days would be brighter for the glory of God and our inner peace. All it takes is to turn our eyes toward God and get our values in agreement with his word.
