TMI part two

woke up early this morning. i am enjoying morning more, now that DST is gone. nights are a different story :)

anyway, still feeling overwhelmingly busy. i know it is going to be this way for awhile, and i know that God opened some of these doors for me, so i am trying, TRYING to stay calm. not doing very well with that, truthfully.

lately, i've been reading some henry blackaby, he's the guy who wrote the very FIRST bible study i ever did in my life, back when Jesus was a new concept to me. i still laugh when i remember that study. i was so enamoured, so drawn in, but so completely incredulous that God had actual RELATIONSHIPS with people. i remember henry saying "watch what God is doing, and jump in." hhhhhhhhuuuuhhhh? watch what God is doing? i didn't KNOW that God was doing anything! i had not seen him looming around in my life, and certainly had NO idea what i was supposed to jump into with Him.

he he. NOW i laugh at the me back then. i suppose later on, i will laugh at the me right now. that is the way it is with God's revealing things to us. i love that part.

okay, anyway. relevant devo for today, talks about 'new strength' which is what i need. the best part is the last paragraph, which really struck me as quite true:

Jesus carried more responsibility than you do. More people needed Him than will ever need you. Yet He was never overwhelmed or inadequate for the task. Now Christ offers to guide you so that you will fulfill your heavenly Father’s will and gain the strength necessary for each day (Matt. 11:28).

and with that thought and prayer for ya'll and myself included, let's carry on as best we can this tuesday, wait on the Lord, and see what He is going to do! have a great one!
