I have sure got a lot on my plate. When I begin thinking about it for too long, I get incredibly overwhelmed. I heard the Lord saying last night, "Enjoy the simple things. Simple. Simple. " That is my goal today. It doesn't make my list any shorter, but it gives me little bits of down time in the middle of the craziness.
The Lord is so good to show His love. Yesterday, I went to a prophetic teaching time at church. I mostly went to support my friend, Kathy, and to pray with other people (have really been desiring that lately), but wouldn't you know, the Lord showed up and smothered me in His abundant love. I was reminded of how much He enjoys me and loves who I am. I was reminded that He loves my personality and that I make Him smile. I was reminded that He is growing me taller and taller. I was reminded of the beautiful giftings He has given me and that He is going to use me. It was a sweet time to be with Him and feel Him lifting me out of the ickyness I had been feeling. Life gets harder when you try to live it on your own. I've been reminded more than ever that I am not self-sufficient and cannot live a self-sufficient life. I was bought with a price, and I am not my own.
He is so faithful to not leave us in our own mess. Aren't you glad?
Today, as I think through my list, I am really needing to just get organized. We have an appraisal tomorrow, and I need to clean the house and pay bills. Those are my priorities for today. Dave is at work. It is his LAST call at the hospital here. That is hard to believe!!! My list might seem shorter if I take a little nap...my eyes are a bit droopy.
Let the oil of the Lord's love soak you today. Just enjoy His refreshing.
