You may be far away from me, might not hear your voice so frequently, it possibly looks like its over, but you’ll be in my prayers each time I wake up to a glorious sunrise and kiss goodbye to the golden sunset. Distance is just a word, time just an excuse, as long as there’s love in the heart; there’s nothing to worry.
If you are having a bad day today, tomorrow or any future date, here’s what I want you to do.
I want you to stand up, extend your arms slightly away from your body and shake. You know, like a dog does when he’s wet. You heard me, “Shake it off!”
Do it as many times as needed until you feel completely foolish. I do believe it will bring a smile to your face, perhaps even a little laughter, but it will feel good.
Your challenges won’t go away, but you will break the bond they have on you at that moment. When things go wrong they feel like they have a grip on you both mentally and physically. Ask God to help you let go of them and then stand up, sit where you are and “shake it off!”
I promise you it will work.
Then begin to put things in perspective, thank God that you are alive and yes, thank Him for the things you will learn from all of these challenges.
