This is a little meditation I that wrote when wondering what to write about on a very busy day.
I'm sitting here wondering what to write about after today's bible study. Truth is I'm tired and have a million things to do before my in-laws come for a visit. Grocery shopping and other errands need to get done. I'm also recovering from a small group (about 35 people) camp-out and all that stuff has to be put away. My children also get out of school tomorrow for the summer and I have my other job, part time at the gym to do. As I'm pondering what all that will need to be accomplished and feeling way over-whelmed, a verse is whispered into my head.
Matthew 6:24 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I laugh to myself. Do I really believe this? Am I jamming more stuff onto today just so I can "rest" tomorrow? Am I so busy that I am just running in circles? Am I too busy to be used by God?
Truth is some-days I am. Today I am.
So I press pause and wait. Breathing in and out and just waiting. I quite down my busy mind.
A song enters my mind. I sing along as my prayer.
I change my priorities and put worship of my God back into first place. The place that once had been replaced by my business. I repent and then....
I start over....
