Good Morning, God!
Yesterday morning I took some time “off the clock.” I’ve been pushing myself recently to get over a thousand books entered into a library database. In fact, God, I’ve become sort of compulsive about it.
But yesterday I gave myself a Gift of Timelessness. I stepped out of “scheduled” and just let myself drift and absorb all the beauty of the morning — of the ocean, the orchids, the dolphins — and the food.
It felt like a very good thing to do, God! You spread before us such an amazing world — with good friends and dearest family to enjoy it with. I consider it my calling to appreciate it all!
Of course, I do like to “fix” things. But several days ago I once again realized that I was going to have to put the World back in Your Hands!
I am not quite sure how I end up with the weight of the world on my shoulders. For example, I was fretting about all the talented young people without jobs — when there is so much needing to be done!
Still, I am learning to pull my attention back to the small corner of the cosmos that is MINE — learning to SEE what it is that You might possibly have delegated to me.
I suspect that for a long time I have missed opportunities You gave to me because I was fretting about THINGS that were not mine to influence. Sigh.
So today, God, please help me to FOCUS on what You have set in my path!
