Dealing with the Stuff of Life

Sunset and boats and stuff at the marina

Good Evening, God!

I took this photo last night as we were watching the moon rise . . . I love both sunsets and moonrises.

For a change I wanted to photograph the “stuff” that is in this photo. Maybe because I knew that this morning was my morning to “deal” with stuff. Susan, The Helper, came over and with her as Body Anchor, encourager, and coworker I managed to plow through a few months worth of “stuff” that I had put off.

It wasn’t really hard. And, as I did each task I wondered WHY I had considered it “hard” enough to put off. I noticed that most of the tasks required several steps to complete. Apparently, I’m put off by that. And, yes, God, I know that is true for most of us. Each additional step reduces the chance a thing will get done.

I know that You want to help me exercise more personal responsibility. The “catch” seems to be that You will only help me with a project as I am doing the project. The STARTING seems to be almost totally my job.

Hmm. So, I BEGIN and You come along and help. Duh! I have been asking You to help GET me Started! Sheesh! I feel silly. Worse yet, I think I have been waiting for You to help me feel like doing it. How foolish to think I will ever feel like doing something dull and tedious.
