at this moment, I am full… selah
so much of the time we look at our lives in large increments and get overwhelmed by what we see. We see the semester project we have due, the traffic jam we’ve been in for an hour, the 11 weeks of summer to get something accomplished…. I have been in the practice for a few years now of stepping out of the big picture (which I seem to look at most often) and making myself sit peacefully in the hear and now. When you do that you realize that those things that seem take over your life are not there, and you can sit in the peace and presence of God in that moment. I can overwhelm myself with the thoughts of what will happen tomorrow, but as we are told in the Word, tomorrow will worry about itself. Praise God for moments…for the ability to get past a hurtful or damaging thought to a place that is lush and tranquil…all while sitting in traffic on I-275.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matt 6:33-34
I will be keeping this look for a while….maybe. Its just funny cause there are some things that are easy to change, and so I do, such as my hair, my toenail polish, the look of my xanga, the CD I’m listening to in the car, etc. But other things that have bigger implications in life take time and prayer. Just in case you wondered why I change this so much.
Peace…this made me giggle
