Wrong Side of The Bed ~

your-spirit-is-strong-in-me_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, this morning I woke up,
on the wrong side of the bed
my mind was overwhelmed
with the day that was ahead.

I grabbed a cup of coffee,
picked up a good devotional
but I really wasn’t into it
didn’t find it to be consolable.

I gathered up my Bible,
read a verse or two . . .
but I really wasn’t focused
for the truth to get through.

My day didn’t get better,
it showed in my attitude
I wasn’t very kind or patient
didn’t give too much latitude.

Now that the evening’s here,
as I reflect upon my day
I can see how weak I am
when to Your Word I disobey.

Lord, this morning I woke up,
on the wrong side of the bed
so tonight, I’ll try the other side
and pray tomorrow, I’ll be spirit lead!

whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”

    This was beautiful Deb. All too often, I find myself getting up on the wrong side of the bed, and I’m grateful for the chastisement that follows, because that lets me know God still loves me when He cares enough to rebuke me for my bad behavior. Even more than that though, I’m grateful for His forgiveness. Much love to you. (By the way, if two comments show up, I haven’t lost my mind. I tried posting a comment before this one, and it disappeared into cyberspace. Therefore, I rewrote it.) 😀

    Love you,
    Cheryl

      🙂 I know immediately when I get up on that one side . . . I usually have had a bad night sleep, and wake up to the burning pain in my neck, back, arms and legs. I try to shake it off, but sometimes it has such a hold on me and I take it with me wherever I go. When I pray first, before I even open my eyes all the way, I always have a better day regardless of my physical symptoms. Pray is the key for me 🙂 ~ Blessings ~

    Amen Deb – I’m so grateful that He forgives us for getting up on the wrong side… and I’m grateful for the chastisement that comes when I do, it lets me know that He still loves me when He cares enough to rebuke me. 🙂
