The hurdle is you can easily overlook this and demand “one more blessing.”
It’s easy to get distracted by physical fatigue, emotional moments, a lack of Truth in our brains or something we feel God needs to do in/for us before we give Him the time of day. It makes us short with others and feeling short-changed.
- Widen your gaze. Slow down and take notice of the people around you. Sure... there is always one more thing to do. Accept it. Back up a moment and enjoy the people God has given you to do life with.
- Look over your shoulder. Who was a part of your past that you inadvertently left back there somewhere? Think of names, pray for households and reach out. Pay it "backward."
- Extend grace. Forgive someone, remembering that who they are today is not necessarily what they did yesterday. Actions are confusing anyways, never telling the whole story or someone’s motives. Believe the best. Attempt to dig deeper.
- Name your potential. Have you gotten so used to doing a routine that you’ve overlooked what you’re capable of? Be still. Lean into your Creator. What did He make you for?
