Today has been about perseverance for me. I woke up this morning very tired and achy and with a stuffy head. (Okay, I have had the stuffy head for several days...) I did not want to get up first of all. And after I was up I only wanted to go back to bed. But I had things to do...
First of all, school work. Not my favorite thing to do when my head is full and I can't think straight. I enjoy school normally, but when I am having a bad day health-wise the last thing I want to do is school. But, I did it. Why? Because it needed to be done. And then I wanted to take a nap, but I couldn't because I still had things to do...
I have a Bible Bowl tournament this weekend and studying is imperative. Did I want to study today? No. I wanted to sleep. Did I study? Yes. That was a struggle to begin with. Every verse I quoted I had to push my way through...but you know what? I am so glad I did it.
I really had to fight through everything that I did today. But I am so pleased afterward that I actually did it. And, of course, now that my day is done my brain has cleared up and I feel up to doing more. (Why couldn't I feel so good this morning?) I am satisfied because I did the schoolwork I was supposed to do and I am also feeling energized and prepared for the Bible Bowl tournament. The reward of being prepared, accomplished and content (since I'm not having to stress over what I did not do) is well worth the effort it took to get here. :)
