Last night... there was rest and contentment. And tacos. Our family of four... catching upon two tv shows... laughing together. It went a long way towards filling me back up. Having his arm around me and my head nestled on his shoulder... I had been missing him all weekend while he worked. And although I had the chance to catch a movie with friends Saturday night, I really wished I had stayed home and snuggled into his arms. They keep my heart warm.
But last night, there was another step I had to take. One that required wiping a thin layer of dust from the cover, and flipping through a couple pages to find the day. And there was Jesus. He had been calling to me... but I put too many obstacles between us... as if lifting and opening that book was too strenuous or time consuming. I shake my head in wonder... because all of the procrastinating took far more effort than the actual doing. And the doing? The first line of the devotion? Trust and thankfulness will get you through this day. Hmmm... I wonder what my day would have been like if I had started it out with this. And I read on. And on. Hungry to hear His voice and have it fill me up. To overflowing.
So today... I am going there first. I'm going to start the day on the right foot... and keep on walking.
(The first line... You need Me every moment. Yes, Jesus. Yes, I do...)
