In Others’ Words: When You Can’t
There are days I wake up thinking about all the things I have to do — and how I probably won’t get them done.
Of course, those are the days where I fell asleep the night before thinking about all the things I had to do when I woke up in the morning … and all the things I left undone that day …
It’s a wretched, wretched cycle, isn’t it?
And sometimes I get halfway through those days before I realize I’ve left God entirely out of the equation. Sometimes I may have given him a passing nod — a “Be with you in a moment, God” kind of acknowledgement.
As if all that other stuff is more important than God.
As if what I have to do is more important than what he might have to say about the next 24 hours, about me, about the other people in my life.
Why do I rush past the God who is able … and wonder why I’m so exhausted at the end of the day?
Why do I forget that he can accomplish what I can’t … he can keep me in the center of his will when I feel off-kilter … he’s never bewildered. He has a plan — and I’m invited to be part of it.
I just have to accept the invitation — day by day by day.
In Your Words: What do you need God to do in your life today? Accomplish? Provide? Help? Save? Keep? Subdue?
