Gratitude Day 789
Psalm 89:7: God is respected in the council of the holy ones; God is awesome and revered more than all those around him.
Some days are just plain crazy.
These are the days that are have every living minute filled. Or you are trying to be in more than one place at the same time. Maybe your crazy day includes something that happened completely out of the blue.
But was the day crazy … or was it simply awesome?
There have been so many days when I think to myself, “How crazy are you?” because the day feels out-of-control or the unexpected happens or something takes us by surprise.
Maybe those days ARE crazy. But maybe, those days are simply AWESOME because something amazing or surprising happened!
Is this crazy … or is this awesome?
There’s a fine line between crazy and awesome. Sometimes, it’s simply in the eye of the beholder. What I might think is crazy, you find totally awesome. And vice versa. Just about the time I think I’m getting put over the edge because something is so crazy, another person revels how awesome the opportunity is.
So, before you land something into the “crazy” category, pause. Think. Reflect. It may feel crazy … but possibly, you have an awesome opportunity laying right before you. YOU decide if this thing is completely crazy and ridiculous. Or if it is the most awesome for this day. Week. Or month.
Something can move from crazy to awesome in less than half-a-second. We choose where it lands. I pray that we see life filled with lots of awesomeness and celebrate every single bit of awesomeness in our lives.
For crazy and awesome days, I am grateful.
Dear God – Help us keep perspective. When the day feels full and demanding and possibly too much, help us see that we can define the day. We get to choose whether we see the day as crazy or awesome. I pray we appreciate all the awesome moments that happen every day. Amen.
