Today, on this beautiful Monday, to be honest, I have been in a bit of a monday mood. I am not typically like that. But for some reason I could not seem to shake the Mondays.
I found myself frustrated about things all day. I kept trying to take my thoughts captive and remind myself of truth, and think about the things I am thankful for.
Maybe the allergy medicine I took that left my brain in a fog were not helping. But I was having a hard time feeling thankful today.
Still.. feeling a case of the Mondays. That is until I finally sat down to write and study our Proverbs for today.
I love the way Proverbs 12: 28 ends. In the path of righteousness is LIFE.
As a girl with a ministry named Coming Alive, I am slightly obsessed with the word LIFE.
I want to live fully alive.
Even on a Monday.
So I got excited about this reminder that in the path of righteousness is life. And I am righteous, not because of anything right inside of me, but because CHRIST died for ME.
I am so grateful that we have a Jesus who came to offer us life.
There is another awesome promise in Proverbs for the righteous.
(again let’s just shout glory and remind ourselves that if we are in Christ, having accepted His offer of love and forgiveness then we are wrapped up in His righteousness)
Proverbs 12:3 the Root of the righteous will never be moved.
That just really got me excited today. I am in the process of moving. I am only moving one apartment over, but packing and moving is such an annoying process to be honest. Although it is a good reason to clean out and clean up.
But as I was packing today, I was thankful when I read that verse.
It doesn’t matter where God takes me today, tomorrow or the next day.
The root of the righteous will never be moved. The Message version says, ” life rooted in God stands firm.”
Yesterday I went to a craft fair ( I can’t help it. I love these southern gems. Lots of fried yummy food, lot’s of clogging and gospel music, and crafts that I don’t buy but I enjoy looking at).
There was tons of mud and the ground was slippery. You had to be super careful where you stepped, or you would either slip or stick.
Today I am grateful that when my life is rooted in God, I stand on FIRM footing.
I am letting go of my case of Monday’s and today taking on praise that when my life is rooted in God, I stand in firm footing.
Rooted and free.
