I am so enjoying receiving my “word for the day”! Recently LASSITUDE was the daily word.
I could so relate! Weary! Oh my gosh yes! I’ve found myself weary at times this year…how about you?
I have a friend whom I will call Jane, that was recently laid off of work. Initially she was emotionally and mentally overwhelmed! This past year she’s seen many life changing events…major ones…then this just seemed like the last straw.
What life altering events have you been experiencing?
Death? Divorce? Downsizing? Debt? Domestic Violence? Illness? Heartbreak?
We can have an attitude of lassitude during these challenging times or one of Deliberate Determination to allow God to Deliver us.
After a day or so of lassitude, Jane texted me “I’m excited about the doors God is opening. I’m trying to be still.”
Be Still and know that He is God.
Our circumstances may remain the same, but we can change our response to them. Even in the midst of severe despair… rest in Him.
Charles Swindoll said it best:
“I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.”
It is our choice. We can be weary or rest in the palm of our Lord.
I choose No More Lassitude!
