I have mentioned before that I have these daily flip calendars.
The oldest one I have is my Apples of Gold (bottom, far right).
“If you have learned to walk a little more sure-footed than I, Be patient with my stumbling, and know that only as I do my best and try, May I attain the goal for which we both are striving.”
Beth Moore Twitter Talk is the one on the bottom left:
“We are terrified of boredom. We often resist obedience to God because we fear He’ll bore us to tears. We have not idea the life that awaits.”
And finally, Jesus is Calling by Sarah Young:
“Bring me your weakness, and receive My peace. Accept yourself and your circumstances just as they are, remembering that I am sovereign over everything. Do not wear yourself out with analyzing and planning. Instead let thankfulness and trust be your guides through this day; they will keep you close to Me. As you live in the radiance of My Presence, My Peace shines upon you. You will cease to notice how weak or strong you feel, because you will be focusing on Me. The best way to get through this day is step by step with Me. Continue this intimate journey, trusting that the path you are following is headed for heaven.” Psalm 29:11; Numbers 6:24-26; Psalm 13:5
I could read each one of these today and know that on their own, they are significant to me. But reading them in this order, and pondering each for a moment, makes my heart and mind think they belong together.
My anxiety was over the top yesterday due to a credit card decline, and a near accident on the way to a birthday celebration for my sister-in-law. David’s touch can calm me, but I couldn’t let go of things. My stumbles. My walk. Needing to be quiet in the moment and rely on a God that has gotten me through so very much. I eventually calmed down, but have thoughts spinning constantly.
Everyday we have the opportunity to seek Him. Everyday I need to bring Him my weakness, and rest in Him. His plan is the plan that I am following. Being quiet in the moment this morning, and having Him guide my path today. Reminding myself of this at each moment of anxiousness will be the challenge. I am feeling up to that challenge today!
Blessings today and always.
