Hello blog fam! It’s been awhile since we have spoken. I’ve been extremely busy, I’m in college so I’m taking finals now and just trying to wrap up the semester. This is my last fall semester in Undergrad. It’s crazy how fast time flies and we find ourselves yet again at the beginning of a new adventure. Next year, I will find myself in a new state in law school experiencing life once again through the lens of NEW. Crazy, absolutely insane! I’m so excited and truly ready to move on to this new phase of my life but I am trying to enjoy the time I have left in this phase, in this season. So while I take a break from studying for a final, I write this brief message to you: Remember to wake up on the right side of the bed. What? This is the special message that she took 3-5 days to write? What? Not exactly. This thought just came to me a few minutes ago. Wake up on the right side of the bed.
When a person “wakes up on the right side of the bed”, they wake up with a sense of peace, happiness and contentment. This is what I wish for each of you that read this blog. I wish you a sense of peace, happiness and contentment. I remember telling one of my best friends that I wished for him a peace that would fill him up and never let him go, that even when it seems all hell has broken loose, he would still have a smile on his face. This is the type of peace that I wish for all of you. I’ve had the blessing of experiencing this peace and everyday I get a chance to experience it again and again. I can stand in the midst of my trials and laugh at them knowing that everything is going to work out for me. I was speaking to this same friend and I remember saying: Everything is going to work out for me because God’s got my back. Good news! God ‘s got your back too! Because of His support, you never have to worry about what’s next or what’s to come. You never have to worry about what you are going to eat, wear, stay, or even worry about who will be in your life for whatever particular seasons- He’s got your back. God takes care of those that are His.
What does this mean, you might be asking? Those who are His? I thought we all belonged to Him? No. we do not all belong to Him. We only belong to Him, if we accept His Son. Those who accept the Son, accept Him. Those who deny the Son, deny Him. That’s the difference. We are His children if we ask Him into our hearts and give our lives to Him. It is when we relinquish our own will and adopt His that the relationship changes and he becomes our Father and we His child. He is the giver of this peace, this happiness and contentment. He makes me wake up on the right side of the bed. Guess what? He does not have favorites. You too can wake up on the right side of the bed but only through Him will you find ultimate peace, contentment and happiness.
You don’t have to agree with me. I’ve lived life with Him and without Him and trust me there is a difference. Once you experience Him for who He truly is in all of His kindness, grace and love-it’s hard to go back to the old. It’s hard to have the old and be satisfied. That is what I learned, that He satisfies me and since I’ve been satisfied it’s going to be hard for something to come and take that place. This is the beauty of His love, this is the beauty of his grace that when all things fail, He remains the same. I waking up on the right side of the bed, and I wish the same for you.
If you wish to talk to me about anything, feel free to reach out to me. If you are offended, I’m not a mind reader- express yourself and comment. I believe that we can reason together. If you agree, comment. I believe in positive discussions. If you are lost, ask questions. Those who ask, learn. Those who remain silent, live life in ignorance. Ask away. If you believe that you do not need this type of peace, happiness or contentment then God bless you. It’s not my job to convince you of anything but rather to share with you my heart in hopes that you will experience some of the same things. Finally, if you are looking for an argument- there are other blogs with similar topics, argue with them! Thanks and Goodnight:)
