H…. is for ‘Hurry’….
Which is what I seem to be doing lately!
Seems I might be somewhat addicted to being in a ‘Hurry’ or always moving, because when I try to not do anything (including talking), I begin to feel anxious.
Or maybe, I just avoid being too still for too long to allow myself to feel too much about too much of anything?
Oh, *looks up*, that was not a question by the way, more like an uncertain statement *blank stares and races out the door*
being in a hurry means you have plenty to do that needs to be done, when you are used to that daily thing sitting still not doing anything becomes abnormal somewhat , do you meditate by any chance?( i am the most horrible at meditating ever!!!)
I do not meditate. I pray to God often, through out my day, in almost everything I do. For the power to keep going, if I am feeling exhausted, or for the strength to be patient if I am short of patience, or kind if I feel like being a cow. Lately, that seems to be a regular occurence. Then I spend more time praying forgiveness and asking to get over my own pride….
It’s very Comforting, talking to God, sort of like a best friend, who never lets one down.
I have to agree there is no better feeling in the world i pray regularly too, you are quite remarkable miss lou lou
** Know the right stuff, choose to do the wrong stuff, and then pray for forgiveness when it hits me, how serious it is. Blatant defiance I don’t like not being in control, I get anxious about stuff.
Paul had the same issue with trying to do good, but failing, and he was an Apostle!
But I need something more! For if I know the law but still can’t keep it, and if the power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help! I realize that I don’t have what it takes. I can will it, but I can’t do it. I decide to do good, but I don’t really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don’t result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time.
It happens so regularly that it’s predictable. The moment I decide to do good, sin is there to trip me up. I truly delight in God’s commands, but it’s pretty obvious that not all of me joins in that delight. Parts of me covertly rebel, and just when I least expect it, they take charge.
I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn’t that the real question?
The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does. He acted to set things right in this life of contradictions where I want to serve God with all my heart and mind, but am pulled by the influence of sin to do
