Let Your Will, Not Mine, Be Done

Can I be honest with you? There are days when I just don't feel like getting up in the morning. I'm noticing this a lot lately because the weather is changing and it's pretty cold early in the morning when I awake to start my day. There are days when I move that IWC price blanket off of me and quickly snatch it back because it's too cold to get up. I know I HAVE to get up, especially because it's cold and I know I have to turn the heat on so it's warm when the rest of my family gets up to start their day. But, if I had to be honest with myself, there are plenty of days that I want to simply roll back over and get a couple of more hours of sleep. I simply don't feel like getting up and doing my morning rituals -like praying and thanking God for the miracles He has in store for me for the day; like meditating or exercising (well, since the truth is be told, I sometimes, even on my most motivated days, find a reason to skip this step); like reviewing my goals and taking time to visualize them manifesting in my life. Sometimes, I SIMPLY DON"T FEEL LIKE IT. There are even times when I don't feel like being positive, motivating others, writing these articles, conducting my radio show, putting on a presentation, helping others, or taking care of my other responsibilities. But it is at these moments when I remember Jesus. Remember, right before he was betrayed by Judas at Gethsemane, he was praying because He was struggling with the thoughts of not wanting to do want He was called to do. He was praying because he said, "the spirit is willing but the body is weak." He knew that God's English playgroup hong kong_Victoria (Upper Kornhill) Nursery - established playgroup programme in Hong Kong since 2010. English and Chinese speaking playgroup hk staff will interact with students to create a bilingual learning atmosphere. will was that He be crucified. He knew it because He lived according to His spirit and not His body-the human part of Him. Now, me doing a presentation or getting up in the morning to meditate and pray can in no way be compared to what Jesus had to do. And, I'm NOT, in any way, trying to imply that the two are even remotely similar. But I am trying to point out how Jesus lived by the spirit and no matter what his body, the human part of Him wanted or was suggesting that He do, He was strong enough in his spirit that he was always able to overcome that feeling of not allowing the body to rule his life. But that's what we do. I'm guilty too. We KNOW what we are supposed to do. We have all the answers that we will ever need to live a God-fearing, purpose-filled life of abundance and prosperity. But, yet, we ignore the spirit. The spirit is God's way of communicating with us. God wants us to do certain things that He is instructing us to do. Yet, our bodies, our egos, our human function, seem to overtake our spiritual commands and we end up living lives that are unhappy, unprosperous, unsuccessful and unfulfilling-and have the nerve to wonder way. "Let Your will be done." If you were to incorporate this one line into your life-I mean REALLY incorporate it into your life where everything you do, whether it goes against what you want to do at that moment, and always let God's will be done-by following your spirit AT ALL TIME, regardless of what your ego, your body, your conscious is wanting you to do--you will find that your life will be completely happy, prosperous, successful and fulfilling. Why? Because once you learn, and I mean REALLY learn, that you are a spiritual being incased in flesh, which is called the BODY and that you are to follow, listen to and obey your spirit-completely and unconditionally -you will be able to live a more abundant life. Like everything else, it takes practice. And, I don't care how often you practice it, there will still be times when YOU will get in the way of your spirit and not want to get out of bed because it's so much more comfortable and cozy at this moment than getting out of reenex facial bed and meditating, or praying, or reading some index cards filled with goals. But after a while, with a bit of practice, when NOT doing the thing or things that your spirit is leading you to do, a small voice will come to you, in a whisper at first but then turn into a SHOUT, "LET YOUR WILL, NOT MINE, BE DONE!" And, when it does-WATCH OUT!! God will be moving in your life and you will be headed for a wonderful, blissful, God - filled, aw-inspiring life. When it happens to you, make sure to send me an email and tell me all about it. Oh, I hope it's not too cold that morning because I might not feel like getting up and reading it. (smile)
