Daily Refection--Cuddle Up

 

 

 

Ever have one of those days where you just don’t want to get out of the bed? Don’t really want to face the day, and the activity it will bring? 
.
It’s not that I don’t feel grateful for my life. I know that most of my problems are first world problems and I am immensely blessed to have all that I have. But, some days. I just don’t want to get out of bed. 
.
 I think of the mornings I have to drag my son out of his bed for school. When he wakes on his own he is usually cheerful as a bird. But if you wake him, watch out! He’s a bear. And when he is, I find myself bristle. I’m irritated by his mood. I need him to get up and get ready. 
.
But this isn’t grace. It’s not the fruit of the spirit. It takes discipline to get up when you don’t want to. And teaching our kids discipline is always an opportunity for discipleship. Discipleship cannot begin with irritation, I remind myself! 
.
Did you need a reminder today?
