Psalm 46:10

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

I woke up this morning just out of sorts; cranky in other words.  Couldn’t seem to find a reason to smile.  Oh woo is me 😦   So I started asking the Big Man (God) if He had any idea what was my problem.  Looking for a reason just seemed to make me crankier…family beware.  “Come on, God, I know I should not be this way.  There are so many reasons for me to be grateful!”  And yet, no smile crossed my face.  Ever have days like that; days when the sun just does not seem to shine and energy is at a significant low?

Days like these demand a choice.  Will I lean on my mood for my day or on My God?  In the frenzy of trying to pinpoint why I was unstable there was a whisper that said, “Be still and know that I am God.”  Time to stop thinking and start believing.  Does not make me happy right away, but sure gives me a foundation to locate my joy.  Be still, be quiet, stop thinking and stand on the wonderful fact that God is God.  Rest in Him.  Rely on Him.  Give it all to Him.  Get up and smile BECAUSE He is God and I am His kid!

UPDATE on MOM:  She is still in the hospital but has taken a turn for the better.  Amen and Hallelujah!  Thank you for your prayers.

One thought on “Cranky

  1. Praise God for Mom’s turn. This is my all time favorite passage..”Be still and know that I am” I LOVE it. Last Tuesday, I woke up the same way…then I received a text from a little girl that I met 2 days before, that simply said “I love you!!” Changed my mood immediately…thank you GOD. Feelings and moods always move along…Thank you GOD.
