As this month ends I find myself quietly contemplating.  I have listened to crazy stuff from craziness and marveled that I no longer answer to craziness.  You see, I used to remark that "they don't know who they are messing with."  The truth is that I know who I am, and it matters not what anyone else understands.

Yes, that is how you should respond, especially when you know who you are.

Quietly contemplating. . .  Why did I work so hard to help others to succeed?  Why did I put others ahead of self?  Why did I push my work aside to help another?  Hmmm.  And the sad part -traditionally- is that there was no one who would do the same for me.  Again- understanding that
this is my time, for finishing my stuff, for working for me.  This is my time realizing my value. 

How many times have you set  your goals aside to promote another?  You are indeed a precious person, one that God loves.   Precious person, you don't need approval from another, you don't need to hide from your life- it is special. Walk in what God has for you.  Watch what God is doing in your life.  enough for now.

Each Day

A new day.  It really does not matter what you are going through.  It is a new day.  A new moment to find yourself. An awesome chance to accept Holy Spirit's guide.  A new opportunity to follow God's will for your life.  It is a new day.  Oh please do not miss this day, this chance, this opportunity to see what God has in store for you TODAY.  Each day, new mercies I see. each day.  enough for now.

Waiting wears you out, doesn't it?  Look at how much waiting we actually do.  And since, most of the time, waiting is irritating, we absorb that irritation.  And we become instantly irritated when we realize that we must wait - on anything.  Think about it.  I know I have been there. 

The sad part about it is that we transfer that irritation while waiting on God. Yes we do. We try to work ahead of God.  We try to 'make it happen'.  Oh but it does not work like that.  We hear a little of what God has said and we run with it.  And we find that we fail.  Wait on God.  Whew! Wait on God.  Come on, say it . . . now wait.  enough for now.

Sometimes it is refreshing to be with like minded people. It does not mean that you know them but that you can relate.  Have you ever been there?  

In a society where people are becoming less communicative it is refreshing to chat about whatever without it being "forced." In my case it was in Zoup and we actually had conversations about the offerings of soup.  Ah such refreshing fun.   

Wait on the place of chat with strangers for you.  Enjoy it and keep on going.  It is a part of that smile and receive a smile. enough for now.

Learn to Depend Upon the Right One

Have you noticed how much you depend on others?  Yes, it is good to be in community, however the reasons you have for depending on others may be a little twisted.  Take time today to examine who you depend upon, and why.  I've heard too many horror stories on people depending on another and they were terribly disappointed.  You will always be disappointed if you depend solely on another human. That's how it is. It is not as bad as you may think if you recognize the roles we have. We are responsible for self and accountable for others. 

Let me get you started.  You cannot depend upon anyone else for your happiness,your peace.  That peace comes from depending totally upon God. Go ahead, try Him. You will be pleasantly surprised. enough for now.
