Meditation Monday

How’s your week looking? Are you wondering how on earth you’re going to get through the massive to-do list? When will sleep happen? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just pencil in a bubble bath? Ah, yes.

I’m a details kind of person, and that is not always a good thing. In fact, most days I think it’s a curse. If only I could get past the details, I could envision the finished product. Alas, by the time I begin picturing the finished product, I’m so stressed out by all that has to happen in order to get to that point, that I have worn myself out before I even start.

I’m grateful for all of the ways that God has worked to mold this character trait into something a bit more promising than disastrous. The right people and circumstance (although I thought they were all wrong at the time) have helped carve out a balance, yet I still struggle from time to time with letting my mind go into “Oh my goodness! I’m out of control!” mode.

That’s why God showed me this verse at this time in my life. Oh how I need to remember and believe it!

“I know that You can do all things, and that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.” Job 42:2

Now it’s your turn! What verse will be the focus of your week? I challenge you to pick one and write it down where you will see it frequently throughout your day. Already done that? Now share it! God’s Word is powerful, and is the greatest gift you can give to someone else. Share your verse with someone this week. Leave it in a comment on this post, send it in a card to a friend, call your sister and tell her what God’s shown you today. Don’t just sit on the gift you’ve been given. Spread the Word – you’ve been commissioned to do so.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”         Matthew 28:19-20

    Great one from Job! Love that. Mine is John 16:26-27: In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. 27 No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.
