Here lately I have found myself full of worry and anxiety. I mean so full of it that I cannot function straight.
All of this has led to something I haven't had to deal with ...ever.
No motivation. I have no motivation.
It's hard to get out of bed, it's hard to actually want to go to class. All I want to do is, nothing. I'm so confused as to why this is. Is it because of the anxiety & worry?
The last few days I have found myself craving for routine. A daily routine. My devotional hasn't been done each day like usual.
So, as I crawled in bed last night, I opened my devo book and my Bible. It was exactly what I was needing to see.
Isn't it mind blowing how God provides and KNOWS exactly what we are needing? I still try to wrap my head around His goodness. After reading this devo and my Bible, I spent a good time in prayer and asked God to calm my heart. To take the worry and anxiety and fill me with His peace. He has done exactly that.
This morning after I woke, I sat down and made out a daily routine schedule. Every morning I will get up and have my precious time with Jesus at 7 and then head to the gym or for a run at 8 or so. These 2 things are things I have been yearning for. More Jesus and more exercise. The weather is finally warming up and is beautiful.
The way the weather has been reminds me of God's promises. It has been cold and dreary and a tough winter, but the sun has come out and the birds are chirping. Flowers are blooming. I love the newness of Spring and how refreshing it is.
With this new schedule and making the effort to get back into a routine and have my Jesus and Me time, I know God will refresh the dreary winter inside me, and a refreshing newness will bloom!
He will refresh our souls, and give us rest. The weariness will fade.
Jeremiah 31:25 "I will fully satisfy the needs of those who are weary and fully refresh the souls of those who are faint."
I also started at second devotional today. It is called "Experience 14 Days of Fresh Air" it is from the Chris Hodge's new book "Fresh Air"..If you are on YouVersion Bible App, I highly recommend you download this plan!
If you are stuck in a rut and find yourself having no motivation or just yearning for more, you are not alone. Bury yourself in God's Word and Promises and cling tight. Joy DOES come in the morning!
