You Can Sit With Us

Have you ever walked into someone’s house and felt the tension, almost as if the air is thick? This tends to happen when we have unresolved issues, wrong mindsets, or controlling tactics. I grew up in such a home but now after years of living and even contributing to that, my home is finally peaceful. Here’s what helped me and perhaps can help you. Each day we get to wake up again, is a day the Lord has made. He even says His mercies are new every morning. If His mercies are new every new day, ours can be too. It’s important to set the tone of your day. What is the first thing you are doing when you wake up? What is the second or third thing you do when you wake up? Are you going straight to your phone or computer? Are you stressing over the day ahead? What is going on internally with you? What are you thinking about? How is your attitude?  God says lay your burdens down. He wants us to give them to Him. His shoulders are much stronger. He is more equipped to carry and handle for us. I start the day in quietness, sitting in God’s presence, praying ( talking ) to Him about whatever is on my heart or something I need his help with. Then I read a bible plan, devotional, something to set my mind right (on high). God says that what He says is the only real truth. I am the way, the life, and the truth. It’s pretty clear though we get a lot of mixed messages throughout our day and overtime we are confused about what to do or even what we believe. Then we pile on work and family. After I do that, I usually turn on worship music or something uplifting. Nothing demoralizing. This actually changes the atmosphere because you are allowing the presence of God ( love) to come in.  It lifts the junk off and we walk out the door lighter though stronger, ready to tackle our day.
