The appetite of the lazy craves and gets nothing, while the appetite of the diligent is richly supplied. Proverbs 13:4
I have been lazy. I admit it wholeheartedly. And I have been suffering from it. Just read my latest blog about my depression. It's been eating me up inside everyday.
I decided I was going to blog today about an accomplishment I had yesterday. It was a horrible day, filled with many tears. But I had one good thing come of it and I came here to blog about it. I try to remember to add scripture to my blogs when it is extremely relevant to me at that particular time, particular blog, etc. So I set out to find a perfect scripture that captured exactly what I was thinking.
And I found the above scripture, and it spoke volumes to me. Just when I become a little complacent and feel that I am just right with what God is saying to me, he goes and pulls the wool over my eyes and shocks me a bit. He helps me remember that I should go to him for the answers.
See I came here today to tell you that even though it was a horrible day I accomplished cleaning my downstairs tile floor. Except for a little portion by the front door and under the kitchen table it looks spectacular. Amazing honestly.
And I even cooked a meal that was sooo yummy.
So I looked for a scripture about rejoicing, keeping up the home. And I found this one.
Now what did it mean to me? Well it reminded me that my being lazy is just making things worse. Especially when it comes to my depression. I need to get up and face the day. I need to tackle challenges. Even if I only do one little thing a day, its an accomplishment. And God will provide the much needed pat on the back when its done.
I really need to remember to just go back to the basics, go back to who matters....God.
