Sunday was a time of great worship at church. In a rare moment of focus I was able to put aside the cares of the world and truly enter into worship in the presence of God. It was beautiful and refreshing.
Then Monday happened.
I was aggravated with the boys and thought to myself, oh how I long to be back in the presence of God like I was during worship yesterday. And God, in his ever loving kindness simply said “You can be. Being in my presence is a choice. I haven’t moved. The only thing that has changed is that you are allowing your circumstances and mindset to have more power over you than my presence.”
And it really was that simple. In that moment I made the choice to focus on my big God instead of my small problem and my whole attitude shifted.
And that was Monday’s victory!
