I am way over my head. More to do than I can do. More people to write than I am able. More phone calls. More tasks. More expectations than I am able to meet. I am only one person. I cannot cope with all that is on my plate.
What does God require of me today?
"I am humble and meek, learn from me." Jesus
"Unless we become like children, we cannot enter into the kingdom of God."
Perhaps God would have me rest in this day that He has made, delight in the moments He has given. Live with my limitations. Know my fragility, His strength. Admit my frailty, live in His compassion and mercy. Acknowledge my failures while living in His redeeming, generous love.
God is opposed to the proud and gives grace to the humble.
Today, early this morning, I have found rest and peace in the midst of my flurry--my warm tea, the dancing piano notes soothing my weariness, the tiny green aspen leaves budding outside my window, and crawling up into the arms of my Father seeking peace. Only as I live in Him will I find peace today. I will seek to stay here as I go about my business.
The meek man will attain a place of soul rest. As he walks on in meekness he will be happy to let God defend him. The old struggle to defend himself is over. He has found the peace which meekness brings.-- A.W. Tozer
