Believing in the little things today.
Believing in the little things today.
Sunday….It was 78 degrees, and the waves were calling me.
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.
“Climb the mountains and get their glad tidings. Nature’s peace will flow to you as the sunshine flows into the trees. The winds blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares drop away from you like the leaves of autumn.”
– John Muir
Hurricane Nate is supposed to hit tonight, and we are on the East side of the storm. We shouldn’t have too much issue as the storm is directed a bit more West this morning. I am trying not to worry about what should or shouldn’t be done.
Busy trying to finish up my English homework before Carmen and I leave for a wedding of a friend of hers from school this afternoon. Lots of things to do or to accomplish. Just taking it a step at a time…climbing my mountains.
“If you don’t scale the mountain, you can’t see the view.” – unknown
This is my 500th post. As of this writing I have 90 followers (in January I had 7) -so wow!! And I am over 300 followers on Twitter. This is crazy.
I made a commitment to blog everyday this year, and so far, have been able to post something daily. My anxiety gets me most of the time, but again, just plugging through daily. Step by step…scaling my mountains.
Happy. Thank you.
Blessings – today and always.
Well, week one has begun, and I am not freaking out. I am calm. Calmer than I should be when I think about all of the homework I need to have done by Monday. I am feeling overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be done, work full time, and blog.
My goal of blogging everyday has become a little more difficult, and I am hopeful to continue with help from David. Hopefully, I won’t be too scattered, and just asking for happy thoughts, and prayers.
