I recently posted an article entitled, 'Things That Make Me Go Hmmm..'.
Wanna know the A-number one thing that makes me go Hmmmm?
It's me. Yep. Me, myself, and I. 'We' drive 'us' nuts, straight around the bend. While I ponder things from my lofty-like little perch, I am continually reminded that it isn't likely I will ever get a true handle on myself, let alone anyone else! It's always so easy to see where everyone else is getting it all wrong, but not quite so easy to see where I get it all wrong. Funny how that works, isn't it?
I want, I need, I have to---. Blah, blah, and blah. I really do want, need, and have to--whatever--but the fate of mankind is not resting upon my shoulders. Nor yours. God is more than able to handle each one of us, and the entire world we live in. Ain't it grand!? We just have to spread the word.
This is where humbleness sets in, not just for me, but for everyone. We are just ourselves, living our lives as God wants us to for the most part, never quite getting it all right, but still willing, still trying, and still hoping that we don't get in our own way too much. Praying that other people don't totally rip us and our very fragile spirits into shreds along the way. Praying to be heard on some level. We all want this, just to be heard, acknowledged, even if it's in a critical manner (this is the best learning venue, for some odd reason--out of the ashes rises the beauty).
I'm okay with just being me. Who else can do it?
God choose me to be me, so I must be okay.
God bless YOU! And try not to make yourself too crazy as you go about this business called life!
