Are you stressed?
There are many of us who feel this way almost every single morning. We wake up. Go to work. Come home. Try to do something productive. Maybe if we have time… play with our kids. Or God forbid, find some peace and quiet.
Then we go back to sleep exhausted. Wake up and do it all over again.
I know I do.
But what if the solution to this problem was closer than you think? What if the changes you want are right but how you are going about those changes is all wrong?
Ask yourself this question.. “What is 1 thing I can change right now that would make my life better?”
Here are a few common changes people want to see in their life:
- Exercise more
- Read more
- More family time
- Consistently go to church
These are changes people commonly want to see in life. But how they try to obtain these are wrong. I am reminded of a verse in 1 Samuel 15:22 NLT
“Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice.”
It’s the small acts of obedience performed over a long period of time that take us where we are suppose to go. It’s not these huge earth shattering changes we need to make to get where God wants us to go. God is only asking us to get what I like to call,
1% better everyday.
