Things lately seem to be getting out of control. I know that actually they are not but when you sit back in a time of quietness and think about it, there is no peace, only the things flying through the tunnels of my brain. There isn’t any drama going on in my life right now more so than any other person alive. We are beyond blessed with a place to live, things to eat, new clothes, and friends. But my list of things that I need to get done keeps growing longer and when that mixes with things that I have been doing and the things that I’m in the middle of…. it just becomes too much and I get tired.
This morning we were taking two seperate cars over to eat an early lunch and I just couldn’t catch a moment of peace. No one was in the car with me, not even a kid. It was just myself and my thoughts blowing around like paper in a windstorm. I couldn’t figure out why. My life is not that crazy right now. We have the same schedule, do the same things, and live the same way as we always have. The only thing that is different in my life right now is that I have to keep the house clean because it’s on the market. That should be considered training, not a burden. So why am I so tired and worn down?
God answered me when I asked Him that question. Because I am living in the chaos of the day rather than the calmness of my God. It is a choice that I am making.
It’s about focus. Mine was on the wrong place and I was doing the work that God has promised me He would do for me. It’s not up to me to carry my burdens, He’s already done it.
I need to focus on God and the peace that passes all understanding will be given to me.
1. For us to know what to do about our house. This is one of the burdens that I was trying to carry.
1. For Jacqueline’s pregnancy! 🙂
2. Getting to talk to my dear friend Courtney via text. She just moved to California and I miss her so much.
3. For not having to carry my burdens.
Please leave your prayer and praise reports in the comments below. I thinking about making this a link party but no one ever participates when I leave it open to comments so I’m not sure you would for a link party. Thoughts? opinions? Bueller? Bueller?
May be peace of God be with you today, tomorrow and always.
