I love it when I find that someone else has used a fun word I often use, like ‘wobbly.’ In my devotion this morning it started out this way, “Trust Jesus and refuse to worry, for He is your strength and song. Are you feeling wobbly this morning…?” Why, yes, I am!
I have been in Oklahoma and now Texas visiting my new baby boy nephews…Benjamin born 4 weeks ago and Theodore born 5 days ago. When I am in these places I love, I have so many things I like to do that I find myself exhausted at the end of each day. I’ve having a hard time getting back in shape after my knee surgery and then extended sickness. Simply put, I feel wobbly. My muscles are weak and my knee is swollen most of the time- it is frustrating and unpredictable. Each morning and then every night I do exercises to regain my strength. After a week of overdoing it everyday, I got up this morning and I felt wobbly!
We can also feel wobbly in our spirit. This happens when we begin to worry about the things that are coming in the days ahead or also the things that happened in the past that we can’t change. I find it difficult not to worry about things in the future and the regrets of the past. I just went to the doctor and found out I have a few health issues that are a little worrisome, however, things can always be worse. I know God is in control and will give me all I need to deal with each challenge thrown my way.
If you are feeling wobbly this morning, I hope you will lean on the strong arm of Christ. He won’t let you tip over. I hope you will join me in remembering that as we take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, we break down the massive mountain looming in our sightline (2 Corinthians 10:5) … everything that makes us feel wobbly when we look ahead. So now that I am armed for battle from God’s word, I am going to eat a healthy breakfast, go for a walk, do a few things on the top of my ‘to do’ list, spend some time with my husband and enjoy this beautiful day….join me!
