It has such an overwhelming tone to it. Sometimes it seems just so hard to find the motivation to get up and get going, to go to work and live the day. The monotony of it all can feel so extreme. It’s here that I have found myself over the last few months. Maybe you are too? Pained by the everyday, the monotony, the seemingly meaningless nature of the activities of the day. I find myself disappointed when the day is over, as I know that I have to get up in the morning to do it all again. ARGH. Its sort of like Toby Mac says in his song Tonight.
We go back, we go forth,
We go back
I’m sick with vertigo
Weary of my ways, my days
My absent flow so
I wanna feel a new day
This has really been heavy on my heart lately and I think, it just should not be that way. I have been trying to figure out how to combat this, by focusing on the people and the mercies and the little things that are so amazing that are around us everyday. And I find comfort here in Lamentations:
21This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
22It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
So, realizing that his mercies are new every morning, I am trying to change my approach to the mundane, and to see the amazing things the Lord is setting before me. How about you? Any ideas?
