Oh how quickly we adjust to circumstances! Today was the first day I went outside to the store in quite awhile. My knee and back has been keeping me at home plus I haven’t felt like myself. I miss my morning walks with you Lord, but what can I do? It was so refreshing to be in the store looking around. I wondered if I’d run into anyone I know and I did. I didn’t stay out long but nevertheless it was a good little trip.
But, it made me think. We really adjust to our situations. We can get used to being indoors or outdoors or traveling or sitting still. I can get up to a normal routine everyday without much changing it. I might not like all that is going on but I get accustomed to it. I can’t fight it so I try to work with it. I pray that I don’t get into a rut or go through the motions and then simply exist. I know you didn’t come to earth, endure hardships, go through betrayals, get beaten for bringing the gospel and die for our sins horribly for us to have mediocre lives. You intend us to do something with the knowledge you have given us.
Today, I don’t want to follow the same routine over and over. I want to mix up my day being sure that I still make time for you even if I can’t walk outside. I don’t want to neglect or forget about you Lord for I need you constantly. I’m still not completely healed and I reach out to you for help. I wish I could say that I totally am myself but I would be lying. And, you know and see my heart. A strong woman I am not. I find myself oftentimes here but not here. I know I want to be obedient to your Word, a good wife to hubby, a good friend, sister and Christian who is Christ-like.
