I’m going to stay home. No. I’d better go into the church. No. I need to work on my project. Or maybe not work on my project, but finish the laundry. Or get that letter-sent-off-and-go-to-the-store-or-see-what-you-guy-son-facebook-are-up-to-I-think-I-drank-too-much-coffee-and-aaaaaaacccccckkk!
It’s one of those mornings. “Among those nations you will find no peace or rest.” (Duet. 28:65)
“Those nations” being all the flurry and worry in me. I need to allow those “governments to be upon His shoulders”.
King David, harassed by a myriad of troubles, said, “Oh God, we meditate on Your unfailing love…”
I think I will just sit here a minute and breathe…
Inhale:”Be still and know that I am God.”
Exhale: “Give all your worries and cares to God, because He cares for you.”
Inhale: “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
Exhale: “Jesus said, ‘Come to me, you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.'”
Inhale: “In quietness and confidence is your strength…”
Exhale: “…but you would have none of it. (Until now).
Now, at least, I can think calmly. What should I do, when I don’t know what to do?
“Trust the Lord from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure things out on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the One who will keep you on track.” Pro 3:5-6 (The Message)
March on with courage, my soul….
