Get Up Get Up You Sleepy Head

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. JAMES 1:2-4

Many people don't like to get out of bed in the morning. Maybe they face a job they hate, a situation at work, an unresolved conflict, a health issue, or just simply want to bury their head under the covers. If this describes you there is hope for a brighter tomorrow.

The key to conquering this complacency in your life is to focus on Jesus. Realize everything eventually will pass. It is true that time does seem to fly. Where do the years go? I look back on junk I went through and hated at the time but now am thankful for what I learned during the ugly moments.

Today give God thanks for good and for bad. Sometimes that is very difficult to do. Stay in the word of God. Start with the book of John in New Testament and read every day. Soon your joy and hope will return.

PRAYER: I pray today for those I know and even don't know who are going through struggles and hard times that you would help them keep looking to you as the author and finisher of their faith. In Jesus' name. Amen.
