Get Your Life Back

Written by: Alana

In this transition in my life I have been doing a Proverbs Challenge for wisdom, guidance, and understanding.

A Proverb a day keeps the Devil away … {insert laughing emoji*} I know, I know, that was corny, but true

Proverbs 6:9

How Long will you slumber, O Sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep

I read chapter 6 a few days ago and wrote about it in my journal (Yes I’m old school and still keep a hand written journal) then decided to share. This verse is talking to the lazy who does not want to work and referencing the, “If you don’t work, you don’t eat” mentality. However, the spirit of the Lord gave me another interpretation. When I was going through my breakup, all I wanted to do was sleep. I would cry and lay in the bed until I fell asleep. Then try to focus on my school work, but begin to cry, and soon lay myself to sleep. Sleep was the only appealing thing in my life at the time.

It was after God speaking through me to wake up and get my life back, I decided to “Push through”

It’s important for us not to become lazy and sleep on God’s promises. At the crunch of my life, the end of my graduate semester, all I could think about was sleeping . I needed to get my life back. The hardest notion to cope with was realizing that I am living in my second chance. God had already forgiving me, and it was time to push through and defeat the devil.

Sleep sounded so peaceful and the most exciting thing I wanted to do after a devastating time in my life, BUT I realized what results are coming from this?

We must wake up and get what God has claimed is ours! Diligently seek God to understand what does he have in store for you. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God knows the plans for us. He cannot reveal what his plans are if we are sleeping and not diligently seeking.

Lord, help us not to become lazy and sluggish during hard times, instead, guide us to become steadfast in your word and will over our lives.

  • Amen
