8 Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For in You do I trust;
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You.
_David, King and Psalmist of Israel (Psalm 143:8)
There are some things that need to be postponed.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t do them, just don’t do them today.
Quitting for example.
Over the years I wouldn’t dare try to count the times I have ended my day weary, worn, and discouraged–ready to quit. But amazingly, I’d wake up the next morning with new strength, hope, and determination.
Maybe not a lot of new strength, hope, and determination, but enough to get through the new day until bedtime again.
Something I’ve learned about these tough seasons of life when quitting looks better and better…
If you will string enough of those “just-enough-strength-for-the-day days together you will discover that you’ve got a win on your hands and quitting will be the last thing you want to do.
The ONE THING for today: Quitting is always an option, but keep it on the backburner for today. You can always quit tomorrow.
This beautiful picture reminds me of my travels through the beautiful Dakotas and Montana. And it reminds me that things always look different in the morning.
