A difficult day...

Well, I'll be completely honest here. Today definitely wasn't a great day. I woke up later than I wanted to and missed my time in the Word this morning. This was followed by much frustration with little action concerning my lack of commitment to the Word--both in lack of desire to read it, and lack of obedience to it. I honestly got almost nothing done today. My studies were hindered greatly by distractions that I didn't even try to get away from. I had absolutely no desire to read the Word, or do my homework. Just now, I read through 2 John several times just to clear my mind of the useless things that have filled my mind throughout this day of no focus. I find it extremely frustrating that I know that I am to do my best for Christ no matter what I do (Colossians 3:23), and yet I don't do it.

Having said this, it is essential that I get beyond the failures of today, and press on to complete obedience tomorrow. Praise the Lord for His mercies being new every morning (Lamentations 3:21-23)! If you would keep me in your prayers, I would really appreciate it.

I'll be praying. I know all about frustrating and seemingly-lethargic days.
The most important part is recognition, so I think this post is very encouraging.
