You don’t like it and you’re certainly not proud of it, but it’s the way things are. You wake up too many days hoping you’ll be able to survive the day, anticipating how all your problems will make it hard to be filled with joy and not being able to shake the feeling you are an absolute failure. And while all of this is reality, you know this is not how God created you to live. God wants your life to be defined by the reality that you are going to meet God every day. This isn’t just some nice sounding platitude. It is reality. Because God meets you in every moment, especially when you don’t think there’s any possibility it can happen. And when God meets you, God gives you everything you need to live God’s way. Which means you can wake up every day excited, hopeful and anticipating what God has in store for you next.
