Day 8 of 30 Days With God

Today wasn't a good day. I woke up very melancholy. I really wanted to sleep in but I had to go to work. I finished my clients and went to the gym and did 30 minutes instead of my usual hour. All day I kept finding myself dwelling on whether or not he missed me or wanted to call me. I found myself wondering if any of it was genuinely real. I couldn't focus on my work out plus I was so tired from working. I went to the relaxation room and got a hydro massage and while I was enjoying that I prayed. Then my Father gave me peace.

I didn't call him or text him, I didn't run to food, but I did come home cry and watch an awesome message about in the meantime by Andy Stanley until I fell asleep.

Although I miss my friends and posting my art. I feel so much more clear headed. So much is going on in the news that will have you either distracted or finding yourself feeling angry. It does feel good to unplug but it also makes me realize its a false sense of connection. As much as I enjoy some time alone I can't stay that way for too long so thankfully work, church, and my kids have been keeping me moving. Surprisingly I have't been as prolific with my art. I pray that changes in this journey.

Anyway today's mood surprised me I really thought I was over the crying about him but apparently not. Can't wait to see what the next 7 days brings about.

Today's word is from Philippians 4:4-9

4-5 Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!
6-7 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
8-9 Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
If this wasn't the best Godly advice I don't know how but its always perfect for the current moment.
