I try telling myself that if I didn't care so much or love so much, I wouldn't try to make everything right and good. But sometimes, when it boils down to it, there's no reason other than a loss of focus. Satan's pretty sneaky & quick to find the diversion away from Christ that I fall for every time. You'd think by now I'd be on guard enough to see it coming...maybe not stop it but at least see that wicked train coming. Nope. Fail. Every. Time.
Well at least there is a big fat goodness moment waiting for me. My crap day that I've created for myself can be turned around and only by the grace of God. His Son, Jesus, took my self-centered, know-it-all attitude and nailed it to the cross so I wouldn't need to be in control. Jesus gives me the gift of being able to say that I can stop, breathe, relax, and give it up to Him. What better place to lay all my worries, disappointments, & frustrations? Not one that I can think of.
So since I took a big dump on my day, I am going to smack my forehead and have a duh moment. I am going to stop & realize that today is done & be thankful for that. I am going to praise God that He knows what's best and I don't have to have all the answers. I'm going to trust fully in the promise that He gives us in Jeremiah 29:
11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
