|loved these vintage inspired wedding shoes!|
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.
