Roll with the punches

Yesterday I wrote about my morning routine and of course what happens this morning?

  It all fell apart.

I stayed up too late last night talking with friends who are sleeping in my office.  So this morning, I woke up late and realized that my bible was resting peacefully with my sleeping friends.

Two lessons learned – I need to be careful in proclaiming my spiritual practices to the world as if I’m some kind of master.  Nope – just a regular guy who loves Jesus and is struggling along.

I also learned that I need to roll with the punches.  Missing one morning of bible reading because I forgot to prepare the night before is not the end of the world.   God’s grace is real for people like me who can’t even live up to their own standards let alone God’s standards.

Thank God for that.  And now to go get my bible.
