I’ve been feeling very down, disgruntled, depressed and disorganized lately. Just occurred to me the reason why, it’s been weeks since I started my day with Scripture.
I’ll admit, I’ve never been the most diligent when it comes to reading the Word and I can’t seem to get into published “devotionals” which many people find very helpful. I discovered a while back that getting daily scripture into my email box worked well for me. But lately I’ve had so much clutter in my inbox that I guess I have just skipped over it.
Been too busy. Been in too much of a rush. And now here I am unable to concentrate on my work, disappointed with the way everything is turning out, depressed about my life in general, and just generally grumpy and grouchy with those in my family and others around me.
Well that has to stop. I must start my day, as soon as I sit down to my computer, with some scripture reading, some reflection, some prayer, and some worship music. I typically post whatever scriptures really touch me to my Facebook wall. So if we are FB Friends, hold me to it! 🙂
Here’s a little song by Casting Crowns that I found on YouTube that sort of sums up what I am feeling right now. (I did not make this video.)
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Col 3: 23-24
