It's Fri-yay


Twenty years ago, my favorite time of the day was going to bed. Can you believe that? It was the only time I could escape the chaos of life and get some peace from the noise around me. Have you ever been in a similar season? Life can be messy, right?

During other seasons of life, Fridays have been a fav of mine as I rushed through the workweek to get a break. While I still look forward to Fridays, I've slowly embraced a God-given, purpose-driven mindset, and guess what? For the first time, I wake up EAGER with a sense of direction and enjoy God and life more.

I've been reading Dream BIG by Bob Goff. He shares a story about a painting called "Sleeping Cardinal." The portrait depicts an artist painting a cardinal of a church. If you look at the picture, the artist looks quizzically while trying to capture his subject. Why??? He's creating a masterpiece, yet the cardinal is sleeping!

Bob shares, "I think God sometimes sees us and wonders the same thing the artist was wondering, 'I'm creating a masterpiece here, when is this person going to wake up?... I wonder what our lives would look like if we were fully awake …Take the next step. Don't just look away; come alive to who God has called you to be. "

Here's a verse: "Forget what happened in the past, and do not dwell on events from long ago. I am going to do something new. It is already happening. Don't you recognize it? I will clear a way in the desert. I will make rivers on dry land." (Isaiah 43:18-19) That's right; God can do that for YOU!

I hope this brought you a smile. Wishing you a Happy Friday. May we all awaken a little more today.
