I don't know about you, but there are so many things clamoring for my attention at one time, that sometimes I don't know where to start, so I end up doing nothing.
Lord help my idle hands.
Idleness is not sticking to what's in front of me. And trying to do everything else but what I should. So, at the end of the day it looks like I got nothing done.
Dreams don't happen to those that don't work for them, I have to choose. Sit around and be idle or do something, anything that means moving forward. Something is always better than nothing
May the works of my hands be pleasing to you My Lord.
Right now, having recently moved, both kids in school, and being new to town. I don't have very much on my plate. Looking for a job has shown to be fruitless so far.
I wake up and my mind has cried a do over before I've even gotten out of bed.
My best is only my best if if I wake up and start it out with God. I've learned this about myself a long time ago. I let him take away all the chatter and noise. Let him show me what a mind at peace can do with a busy day, or even a not so busy day.
You take it one task at a time. Nothing more and nothing less. Keep putting one foot in front of the other even when it seems futile.
Working on dreams is no small task. Faith and works go hand in hand. If I want God to be faithful I have to be faithful myself and show up each day. Schedule what I'm going to do and even set a timer for some tasks so that I can move on to the next thing when the beep goes off.
It's not always easy to show up each day, but it is choosing the best.
What is something I need to let go of in order to accomplish what I'm called to do?
I've been thinking this over
If I were to say one thing that needed to decrease to let God increase, I would say me.
And my thoughts of how things should and could go. I can be my only enemy, my worst enemy. I get in my own way more than anyone or anything.
Fears, procrastination, fears. They hold me back.
So my prayer today would be,
"Lord keep me from idleness and wasting my time on this earth, and help me to get up out of your way, so that your will, will be done. And Lord, help me not to worry about the details, because, you know how they always get to me too. In Jesus' name, Amen."
What are some things you need to let go of in order for your best to come through each day?
