Working from home today as I think I have a cold…not the flu! I hope!
It begins with me. Single moments, incredible opportunities.
…well… air hockey!
Bruises and a table top air hockey game should NOT go together. Had so much fun though!
What word would you use:
Whatever the word is…encourage one another!
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.
I need this today…someone else must as well!
It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. — Lamentations 3:26
I subscribed to Daily Devotionals from Faithgateway. Today is a good day to wait quietly, so when the devotional came through to my inbox, I thought instantly about blogging it. I don’t always like to wait on things. I think most people want things instantaneously. Wifi needs to be instant. Our computers super fast. Anticipation has gone away to the thought that we must have things our way and now. Long ago, I loved getting letters in the mail from friends far away. I would read the letter, and sit down to write the return letter as fast as I could because I knew it would take a week to get there. Waiting. Reflection. Quiet. I need to slow down and enjoy the quiet.

I hope that you forever embrace the wonderfully wild and courageous mess that you are;
the world is already full of people who pretend to have it all together.
Embracing my mess!
