How are you doing? Is 2015 treating you well? It’s been a week now since this new year thing kicked in for real.
Did you have to go back to work on Monday after a couple of weeks off? I did.
I went back to work and logged on to discover one trillion emails.
All right, maybe it wasn’t a trillion, but it felt like a trillion.
Monday was a long day, and Tuesday wasn’t much better.
Some days are long. Right? They are full of dirty clothes, unpaid bills, whiny relatives, and traffic.
But you know what? My week hasn’t been that bad.
I could have had no clothes, no money in the bank, no family, and nowhere to go.
I am blessed.
I was reminded by a wise sister that I need to laugh it off because “Days are long, but the years are short.”
I am not promised tomorrow.
Today was a good day to be alive.
“Abraham didn’t focus on his own impotence and say, “It’s hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child.” Nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up. He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said. That’s why it is said, “Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right.” But it’s not just Abraham; it’s also us! The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless” (Romans 4:19-24, MSG).
p.s. — Make sure you click on “a wise sister” and watch the video. You won’t regret it.
