Sometimes life gets complicated. Most times we make it more complicated than it has to be.
When there’s so much piled on our shoulders, it’s really easy to get caught up in the chaos of it all. We lose focus and feel out of control.
Our spirits lose a little more of that precious peace we need so badly. If we stay in that kind of chaos, spinning aimlessly, we will inevitably spin right out of Gods will.
Not long ago I was feeling buried. I’d taken on too much. My mind was on a constant loop. With several projects going at once, I was consumed with keeping all these different plates spinning.
I was tired.
I was worried.
I was distracted.
When I finally asked God for clarity, to simplify things for me, He led me to Deuteronomy 6.
Not the entire passage but the simple title above the chapter in my bible.
It leapt off the page with a life of its own. It happens every time God speaks through the word. His message comes with a profound gift of understanding.
It’s like God is shining a holy light into our personal situation. He is an unmoving lighthouse of truth in the darkness of an ever-changing storm.
Love The Lord Your God
Love. The. Lord.
All we need to do is keep our eyes fixed on Him.
Keep loving Him more than anything or anyone else.
Keep seeking Him for guidance and wisdom.
Keep trusting Him to work out all things for my good.
We have just one plate to spin, not many.
The rest is in His hands.
The burden is lifted.
We can find peace in this one truth,
God’s got this!
