Am I the only one who seems to make things complicated?  Please tell me that you do too… maybe sometimes…?  🙂

This early morning my mind was in a whirlwind.  Ever had those days?  Thinking of this, that and the other… and finding no resolution in my mind to many things.  Overwhelmed with me – my fears, failures, and tasks.  My mind clouded with the desire to please God in what I do, but heavy with weights of the how to’s. 

So, as He always is faithful to do… He reminded me in several ways today that:

1.  It’s so not about me.

2.  He is faithful to equip us for what He asks of us.

3.  My steps are very simple, and my burden’s light — just simply obey today each step, and do so with the object of glorifying my Father.

“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.” Phil. 1:9-11

Hey… with news like this we should feel about fifty pounds lighter and should be doing the jitterbug in the streets!  Right?

  1. Those “mind in a whirlwind” days are a challenge. Looks like you have The handle on it. I think I’ll jitterbug right along with you.
