My son has a little blog called, ‘www.chunks-o-wisdom.com‘. He posts unique sayings or funny things he is thinking about, usually little one liners. Yesterday the weather was beautiful for the middle of January. We went on a walk and returned home to make supper. My dear husband wanted waffles, but our waffle maker still needs replacing, so pancakes was the next best option. My son disagreed. He wanted french toast, and the reason…too many dishes from the pancake batter. My chunk o wisdom for him…’Don’t let laziness keep you from greatness.’ We ate pancakes and he survived all the dishes.
Sometimes the thoughts on how much effort (painting the kitchen and trim), working on my business keep me frozen, dreading the feeling of being overwhelmed or muddling through. Yet today I was reminded…”As you anticipate what is ahead of you, you forget that I am with you–now and always. Rehearsing your troubles results in experiencing them many times, whereas you are meant to go through them only when they actually occur. Do not multiply your suffering in this way! Instead, come to Me, and relax in My Peace. I will strengthen you and prepare you for this day, transforming your fear into confident trust.” (Jesus Calling by Sarah Young)
