(From the Message)
These verses recently hit me like a brick,... like in a stop me in my tracks kind of way!
I'll tell you why...
As a follower of Jesus, wife, mom, daughter, aunt, sister, daugther-in-law, bible study leader, business owner, ( in charge of marketing, junking, painting, styling, hauling, photography,...)
and an TYPE A personality, I want it all to be done in a A+++ PERFECT way.
And friends, that is just not possible.
I am not and can not be good at everything, BUT i want to be.
And that's the problem...
I start looking around at others, ...others who do all the things I do, but better.
And then I start comparing myself to them and WHAM - there goes my Joy and in comes dissatisfaction,
there goes Peace and in comes jealousy, and the list goes on.
But that's not what Jesus says...
He says ( my words), Jodi do the best you can with the talents and skills I gave you,
Know you are Mine and I have work for you to do,
so get to it, BUT don't be impressed, and don't compare!
You keep your eyes on yourself and do the best you can for ME and that's enough.
Ps. And I'll take care of all the rest.
And when I read these words, I can breathe...and back comes joy, peace, contentment...
He's got it, the pressure is off because He will lead me, and I can just follow.
So these are
my our verses...Yes, I'll share them with you!
I'm going to read these words EVERY DAY.
and BELIEVE them.
