Lately I have had a lot on my mind, my thoughts just jump from one thing to the next. It's like my mind is never at rest, sometimes my soul even feels this way. I always feel like there's something I should be doing or someone to be talking to and there definitely always something to pray about. I feel the more there is to think about and do, the less I get done. I try to make God my focus, yet I let the things of my life take over. I lose focus of the main thing,God, and let the details run my life. Maybe this is what the Pharisees were like in the Bible, too consumed with serving God that they didn't actually know him. I don't want to let the details in my life take over. Stopping is hard for me, slowing down is something that I don't like to do, I almost feel like its giving up or giving in. God needs a heart that's willing and listening, it's harder to use one that's racing around listening to her own thoughts. I need to stop doing what I think is important, and start doing what God wants. Maybe it's just sitting still and getting to know him better. I have much to learn, but with God I won't be lost. Life has a funny way of making things that aren't important, important, but God has a cool way of making what is important more obvious if we ask him. God has the whole world in his hands, and knows everyone of us, and can do it all without getting stressed out or forgetting to do something. Asking him for help is the absolute best thing we can do when we feel like our life is taking over. God can calm my thoughts, and help me sort through my problems, and conquer my fears, I just need to let go of my control and let him. So here's to life and all the craziness that's in it, but more importantly here's to God, who's with me in my life and picks me out of my crazy mess because he loves and wants to be with. So at the end of the day it doesn't matter what did and didn't get done, if I end the day with God as my Savior then my heart can rest at peace, what's really important is that I belong to God, and that someday when this life comes to an end, I will be spending eternal life with him, and that's when the party really starts.
