{Spiritual 5- Wake up and spend time in the Word!} 

Rise and Shine! Give God the Glory Glory!   

You will typically find me waking my kids up to that song. To be completely honest, they really don't like the bright light flipped on along with the sound of my awful off-key singing when barging into their rooms before school! Ha!

Today, I continue in Psalms. I just love Psalms. I've always wanted to take time to really dig through it to really understand it more. Did you know the books of Psalms is the longest book in the Bible?!  YES.  Psalm 119 in particular, has a whopping 176 verses, making it the longest chapter in the whole bible. WOW. This will take me a while to get through, but that is ok! But I digress.... 

So this particular morning, I picked back up in chapter 4 of Psalms.  This passage particularly stood out to me, " "Why is everyone hungry for more? More, more," they say.  "more, more."  I have God's more-than- enough, More joy in one ordinary day then they get in all their shopping sprees. At day's end I'm ready for sound sleep, For you, God, have put my life back together.

Um. Wow.  This verse really reminded me of how easily we are impressed with worldly things.  The houses, the cars, the clothes, the jewelry, on and on. I know first hand because I use to live that way. I feel like it became more apparent to me that I was focused on the wrong things when I took my eyes of the One thing.  

When you come to a point in your life where you do get the things, it's still never enough. You are never satisfied. You become a slave to chasing nothing because there's no eternal value in them. It's a cycle, you come back to just wanting 'more, more' just like it says in Psalms. 

I used to want a lot of material things, and it is only because my focus was not on the One thing.  No money, cars, houses, trips, name brand clothes, or jewelry can compare to the joy that is in Christ. The only brand I rock is Jesus! He is Enough! 

{Fitness 5- minimum 5 minutes MOVING!}

I am still sore from yesterday!  Today, I made it to the gym and worked on strengthening my back! I lifted and it felt so good! I think I actually worked out around 35 minutes. 

 

Please comment below with how your morning went! What did you read about, how did it impact you? What did your 5 minutes (minimum) of moving look like? I wanna know!

Blessings!
