An Almost Diligent Day

Lord worked in my heart today.

He did. He seriously did.

Because I do not recognize who this human being is that did almost all she needed to do for the day and even much more.

I spoke to my Father today, quite easily and even spent time in His Word, although not for long as I will do that later today, by His strength and grace. I wrote down my dream immediately I woke up, as the Holy Spirit gave me remembrance, sacrificing the sleep that wanted to overwhelm me as I was writing it. I had my bath. I wasn’t too late to class. I followed up on my bank card process. I spent limited time on my socials. I studied. I studied well. I even completed my two assignments that are due next week.

However, today was also proof for the fact that I am still a work in progress. I found myself scurrying back to Instagram and almost getting drawn into it again, after I officially left it two days ago. I found myself not controlling my speech and saying needless things. I found myself wasting time that I should have used to spend in His Word. I found myself being overbearing in saying answers in my classes today. I found myself worrying about stats again. I found myself singing along with gospel songs, not only to hear truth but to learn the lyrics so I can show my friends later that I know them. I found myself feeling fear with regards to sharing my faith to my friends.

But in the midst of all these, like I had mentioned earlier, there was so much God helped me accomplish today. There were so many things God gave me strength to do and overcome, regardless of how I didn’t deserve any of it. It is literally so obvious to me that it wasn’t me who did all the good that I did. And so I am testifying of this great God to you.

This Father of mine can be Yours too, if He isn’t already. Do you want to be His child too? Do you want to feel His presence? Do you want to see the real meaning of life? Are you tired of your sin? Are you overwhelmed with burdens? Come to Him. His burden is light and His yoke is easy. He is waiting for you, with His arms wide open.

28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:28-30 English Standard Version (ESV)
