You know those days when your wi-fi is not wanting to work and your computer just won’t cooperate. You have a pounding headache come on, and that coffee is just not kicking in like the barista PROMISED it would. That co-worker with the VERY loud voice is jabbing away at 9am, and you may feel like you’re on the verge of a mental explosion. Yes, I think we all have days like those.
Thanks for joining us for Monday’s Message with Trench Classes United 😊
Whatever your scenario of morning madness may be, it happens to us all. You may start the day all positive and perky, but as soon as you sit down to get productive, your mood goes from 0 problems to 600 in a matter of minutes. Maybe it’s that jerk who cut in front of you in line for your usual cup of joe; maybe it’s your small child that threw a fit on the way to school; maybe it’s your demanding boss at work throwing more deadlines your way, or maybe…just maybe…it’s all just mind over matter. It’s something you feel like you cannot possibly control, but the truth is, you CAN.
And you’re probably thinking, “Yeah, yeah, I’ve heard it all before; I’ve read all the self-help, better me books on the shelf and nothing kicks. Nothing gives.” Except, you may be missing that one piece that puts it all together. The piece that cannot be replaced. The piece that sometimes seems broken but is really just turned upside down. That piece, my friend, is prayer. That piece is a love that cannot be replicated, a grace that can only be given, and a hope that holds on. Hold on to that piece because it is that piece which fits perfectly into your incomplete puzzle of positivity.
It will not tell you how to be a morning person, make your deadlines disappear, or keep your child from kicking and screaming, but it WILL help you turn those situations around. A simple prayer in the morning can create a small smile to the barista, a learning lesson taught to your child, and a determination to take on those deadlines; that is just the beginning of what your pivotal piece can bring. Challenge yourself today to change your perspective, say a small prayer, and promise yourself to be positively pieced.
