Consistency



Lately there have been times when I wake up in the morning and I say (either to myself or out loud), "I do not feel like doing this day..."  It's a terrible thing to say.  We all are given only so many days, and I'm not sure it is acceptable to not feel like "doing" any of them.  But as a matter of full disclosure, today was like that.  The truth is, I am only posting because I know I should.  There have been many moments, lately, when I have not particularly wanted to do the right thing, but I am pushing through it.  This is one of those "right thing" moments.  Consistency matters.

It was almost 8:00pm when I sat down to read Scripture after what was a somewhat trying day which mostly consisted of anxiety, pain, and drug induced sleep.

Nice. 

I came to Psalm 6:2, "Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint; heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony" (NIV).

Seriously?  Funny, God.  And yet strangely comforting.  Even on this day, God knows me...

Psalm 6:9 "The Lord has heard my cry for mercy, the Lord accepts my prayer" (NIV).

Yes, even mine.   Yes, even today.
