Today the routines of life return. Last week most schools were still on break so even though the business world was back to its routine, lives at home were not. Today all of this returns. As much as I enjoy breaks in routines, I need routines to accomplish my best work. Routine are like memory enhancers for me. I lose many important details when I don’t have a routine established to house them.
Today I awoke with several things on my mind–ones I could easily stress over today and place into the pit of worry. As I was journaling them out and attempting to give them to God He reminded me once again that these very items are His opportunities. God worries over nothing and He wants me to release all of these details to Him and His Holy Spirit’s Work. I did just that and it is so very freeing. When I was younger I would go to work very early so I could get involved in work which would occupy my mind so “worry items” would be replaced. Today I get up almost as early but I’m not always going to work and the work I do go to doesn’t allow me to arrive at 6:00 am. God has been needing me to learn a great lesson from Him about releasing the grips of sin–worry–to Him. I’m so grateful for Him in all of this too.
“Trust and Obey for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.” Do you know this old hymn? These words as always so fitting for me when I start my day.
