Happy Monday, Friends!
Want to talk about the makings of a boring weekend? Okay ... I'll tell you the ingredients. Here we go ...
- A pinch of sinus congestion for multiple days prior to the end result
- A dash of a fever
- An eyeballed amount of chest congestion.
Let bake for a couple days at about 98 degrees farenheit and there you have it my friends ...
So yeah, most of my weekend was spent in bed or on the couch. I probably needed that little break though, as much as laying around makes me mad.
After 2 days of laying around, I really needed to get out & church last night was the answer.
We have a small church close by to Butler that really caters to the younger crowd called Common Ground so my friend & I went last night.
While the preacher was talking, something he said made me think about how great I am at patting myself on the back for all of the seemingly great things I do. I'm always telling myself I'm doing a great job of juggling things, of being proactive about my education and future.
But the truth of the matter is? I have literally done nothing to get where I am.
If it weren't for God, I wouldn't even be on this earth. I mean obviously, my parents had a hand in this whole getting me here thing but nobody said what they were doin' had to work. It was God.
Along with patting myself on the back for the good things I do, I'm really good about asking God for things.
"Oh God, please let this interview go well" or ... "God, please help me do well on this test"
and then when he actually does it? I'm like doing roundhouse kicks and high-fiving myself for being so totally awesome
Last night was a great reminder that I have done nothing to be where I'm at right now and this week, I'm going to work on thanking God for the awesome things he's doing in my life, not thanking myself.
This week, I would challenge you to try to be a little bit better in whatever aspect it may be.
Be a little kinder, slow down a little bit, eat healthier, or stop to thank God for the awesome things he's doing.
and until next time, love.
