I love mornings, I don’t know why but I just do. It just seems so peaceful or something. I started running again in April, on the treadmill but now since it is warmer I can outside. When I first got married I ran in the mornings after Loren left for work. Now that I am back at it again I forgot how much I love it. This week has been the absolute perfect weather for it!!
Another thing I love to do in the morning is read my Jesus Calling Devotional. I like each one, but some just really speak to me. This morning was a great reminder to me. It started out like this: “Remember that you live in a fallen world: an abnormal world tainted by sin. Much frustration and failure result from your seeking perfection in this life. There is nothing perfect in this world except Me. That is why closeness to Me satisfies deep yearnings and fills you with Joy.” One of the bible verses that it had me look up was Pslam 37:4- “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”
It made me ask myself, how many times do I cause my own frustrations and failures because I am constantly striving for perfection? I love to plan and organize and if something doesn’t go as scheduled I am thrown off. I beat myself up if I don’t do something just right. This made me realize just how much I do that. How I need to give myself a break now and then and just trust God. He knows what is best for me. Only he is perfect and I need to draw my strength from him. So I once again thank Him for gently reminding me to trust Him more and more each day!
