How are you?  Are you having a good day or a bad day? And how do you determine if it’s a good day or a bad day?

I woke up around 3:30 am this morning and could not go back to sleep.  So I got up and went to work downstairs in my office.  I was able to get a lot done before lunch and felt like I was having a good day.  But then the early morning caught up with me and I felt exhausted.  Consequently, not much was accomplished this afternoon.  So now I don’t feel so great about my day.

What does the Lord think about my day?

…whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. I Peter 4:11

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.  Mark 12:30

Sometimes our strength is limited.  We can be physically or emotionally worn out. Isn’t it great that God does not ask us to serve with strength that we do not have? He simply asks us to serve Him and others with the strength He has supplied. He asks us to love Him with all our strength.

If you’re tired today, why not take this opportunity to sit down, rest and spend some time in His Word? The Lord wants us to come to Him when we are weary so He can give us rest. Matthew 11:28
