At what point do you stop and realize that God is trying to get your attention?
When every thought that you have, every song that you hear, even the things you see posted on social media run parallel to each other; when do you stop talking and start listening?
When there’s a burden on my heart concerning how well people say they are and what’s hidden behind the crooked smile and the awkward stares, all I can do is sit with God.
He’s faithful to always bring an answer.
Can I ask you, what moves you? What compels you toward your truth? What/who do you check in with to keep you accountable when fear, doubt, and shame try to call your name?
Now, can I ask you another question that might give me a totally different answer?
Can I ask you, how well are you? No really. How well are you? (I have something to share with you, it’s free – FIRST KEEP READING and then, see the link below) #WELLnessWednesday
This morning I started thinking about how mindful we are about wellness. According to Webster’s Mind-ful is an adjective describing conscious or awareness of something. Common synonyms are: aware, conscious, sensible, alive, alert, acquainted, heedful, wary.
Webster’s 1828 Biblical Dictionary defines it as: MINDFUL, adjective Attentive; regarding with care; bearing in mind; heedful; observant.
I promise to be mindful of your admonitions.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? (Psalms 7:1).
Coincidentally, the word of the day today at websters1828.com is: Wearisome
WEARISOME, adjective [from weary.] Causing weariness; tiresome; tedious; fatiguing; as a wearisome march; a wearisome days work.
WEARISOME nights are appointed unto me. Job 7:3.
Maybe that’s not so much coincidence.
At any rate, the morning mindful journaling that happened in my heart, my spirit and on paper lead me to pen this post and was inspired by my verse of the day which is Proverbs 4:20-27.
Proverbs 4:20-27 (The Voice Translation)
My son, pay attention to all the words I am telling you. Lean in closer so you may hear all I say.
Keep them before you; meditate on them; set them safely in your heart.
For those who discover them, they are life. They bring wholeness and healing to their bodies.
Above all else, watch over your heart; diligently guard it because from a sincere and pure heart come the good and noble things of life.
Do away with any talk that twists and distorts the truth; have nothing to do with any verbal trickery.
Keep your head up, your eyes straight ahead, and your focus fixed on what is in front of you.
Take care you don’t stray from the straight path, the way of truth, and you will safely reach the end of your road.
Do not veer off course to the right or the left; step away from evil, and leave it behind.
3 Reasons to embrace a new season
- Opportunity to be real.
- Opportunity to show up.
- Opportunity to do the work.
- (BONUS) Pumpkin Spice – no seriously. I sometimes wait all year to bring this back. I know, I could honestly have it all year around but why? If you have too much of even a good thing, it can ruin the wealth, health and value of it. Some things require being separated from them SO THAT you can remember how much you appreciate it. #mindful
