too everything

funny how things change. i went from 0 to 100 in about 1 day last week. in the old days, i would be freaking out. but God has other plans for me, and so far, they seem like good ones.

i had the calmest, most in-control week of teaching that i have had to date, ending last night. which is good, and finally might mean i'm getting the hang of it. it could possibly be that i was just blessed with good kids, too. because they are, and i am.

anyhoo, my devo (Come Away My Beloved, by francis roberts, get IT) last night was wonderful. a reminder that God is in control, as long as i choose to put Him there:

If you would only make yourself a place apart,
yes, removed from the pressure and the turmoil,
and there i will meet you. Yes, I wait for your coming.

For I know what you need, and I am concerned
about your duties and responsibilities.

You will find your cares vanish,
and your load is lightened by an unseen hand.

I would have you bring Me your love,
and even as you are bringing Me your love,
I shall in turn bring to you my Power,
so that I work for you in twofold measure.

I will give you the power to discharge your duties
with greater efficiency. I am actively engaged in
working for you in ways you cannot see, to make your
path clear, and to bring about things you could
never accomplish, and which would otherwise
absorb your energies and wear out your patience.

i hope this blesses one of you reading today as well.
i also hope, like me, you're gonna get a bunch of stuff DONE ;)
