Sunday Evening Perspective
It’s a real bummer when you come into Sunday evening feeling irritable and exhausted. I always think the weekend will bring refreshment and allow me to get things done. So when Sunday evening rolls around and I feel even more stressed that the work week starts tomorrow and my chest feels tight and I kind of want to cry.
Yet, I feel a gentle tug on my heart reminding me that I still have today to change my perspective.
I can still make the most of this day.
Right now, in this moment, I can close my eyes and take a deep breath.
Bring my awareness back to the Lord.
Set my heart on things above.
And remember that right now is a gift. This day is a blessing and even when I feel disappointed or stressed I still get to have the greatest thing in the world.
I still have Jesus.
And suddenly that perspective changes things.
It doesn’t change the number of tasks on my to-do lists or that I have a busy, long week ahead.
But it does remind me of what really matters.
It does help me unravel the lies that a good day has to be a day of achievements.
Are you feeling weighed down, too?
Let’s tuck away all the tasks, the expectations, the pressures... just for a moment.
Let’s breathe and remember that although there are a million things we could be doing, the best thing we can do is go into the secret hiding spot created just for us by our Father.
The spot where we can go to dwell in His presence.
The other things can wait.
I pray you and I can go to the One who embodies peace and exudes love.
He’s waiting for us.
With no expectations and no requirements.
Just us and Him.
