It has been a crazy day y’all. I (Morgan) am currently sitting on a plane in London about to take off for Chicago. (I’m headed to St. Louis to be a bridesmaid in a dear friend’s wedding)
Brian and I have been up since 5am this morning. (UK Time) We left Stockton early this morning and got stuck in traffic, making a two hour drive to Manchester, a four hour drive. With that said, I MISSED MY FLIGHT.
After the four hours of driving to Manchester, we drove another three hours to London to catch a different flight. The good news is, I made it in the knick of time! The bad news is, I didn’t have time to write the daily December devo.
I can however, share what God reminded me of today: DAYS LIKE THIS HAPPEN. In fact, they’re inevitable. We can’t control everything that happens to us, but we can control the way we react to what happens. We can also choose to trust in the One who always remains in control. No matter how stressful our day feels, the universe keeps spinning and God continues to sit on His throne.
Are Brian and I running on fumes today? (three hours of sleep?) YES. Have we felt sick and tired all day? Yeup. Did I have a few good cries this morning? Without a doubt, yes. (Lol) Did we spend loads on (unnecessary) gas money and a new flight? Painfully, Yesss.
BUT at the end of the day… I’m alive. I’m healthy. Jesus loves me… AND I made it on a plane. So… it’s all good. Even on my worst day, I’m blessed beyond measure and have something to lift up in praise. I have 10,000 reasons to thank God.
Perspective changes everything. We can either complain about our situation, or tap into God’s supernatural peace… Because guess what!? Having a bad attitude doesn’t change our situation. What’s done is done–we can’t reverse time, so we might as well have a positive attitude rather than a negative one (Now if I can just put this into practice a little more consistently )
We are all a work in progress folks. Thank goodness God promises to finish what He starts in us.
“…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” – Phil. 1:6
