You know those days. The days where all you want to do is roll back over in bed, bundle up in blankets and sleep the day away. Today is one of those days. We have snow, and lots of it. I guess while we’ve had some white days already, that this is the real “winter stuff” that Michigan is made of. When its in the teens (with windchills in the single digits) outside its so hard to get motivated and be productive.
Sometimes its extra hard for me to get going because of the exhaustion caused by lupus. Other times I think its just this grey, cold weather that makes it that much worse trying to get things done. Today, as I write this, its already snowed about 6-8 inches. The roads are ice and snow covered and its SLOW moving on the interstate, but I am going to go outside, scrape off my car, warm it up, pack up bella and we are going to make the hour drive into Grand Rapids so I can meet with a potential client. And I know that just as soon as I go and put real pants on (and maybe even a bra. I don’t know. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves) that I will instantly feel motivated and ready to take on the day.
Sometimes its that first step thats the hardest. –Getting out of the warm bed. Brushing your hair. Making the call. Whatever it is, we all experience that sometimes. I find that a lot of time this is the way we behave spiritually as well. Like when we have let something that needs to be brought before God go a little too long without addressing it, it just makes it harder to take care of it. When we have a sin in our lives that we have kind of ignored, it tends to recede in a way that we can accept it and make excuses for it. It’s like rolling over in bed in a way, but pretending its not there doesn’t make it go away.
So, today I’m facing things, even when I don’t really feel like it. And I am examining some things on my heart to make sure I am taking just as much care with my spiritual life as I am with my business obligations.
