Wednesday’s Word

It’s that time of the year…already! In addition to the other hats we as women wear, now we get to add to our responsibilities in the name of “Christmas,” which can really send us in a tailspin if we are not careful! Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and Wednesday’s Word with Trench Classes United

I don’t know about you, but this is where I struggle, staying in the moments because of all my responsibilities, especially at this time of the year. But is that a crutch of an excuse? Is that just a pass to remain busy, and often too busy? Oh, if we were just given the perfect equation for balance in our lives, huh, some sort of recipe to follow that we would achieve that ability to consistently stay in the present so as to not be ripped off in the future while soaking up regrets from the past.

I think I found it…yes, the answer to this dilemma!! But I must confess, it sounds easier than it is but it really is possible! I’ve already tried putting it into practice and I’m telling you, it works! See, this life is just temporary, a sort of practice run to learn how to dwell in eternity with the One whose perfect love will carry us there, so whatever we endeavor to do, wherever we put our most energy, whatever rents the most space in our head…must have eternal value!

 

Pouring truth into the mind is necessary to keep out the lies that keep us chasing after another thing to check off on our to-do list, or trying to control circumstances, situations or even worse, others. We must discipline the mind with spiritual truths which will then feed the soul so as to not be caught off balance like that of a double-minded, wobbly-legged weakling struggling to stay afloat while grasping for air, or for a future that is secure.

So as we enter into this holiday season, my prayer for you and for me simply stated are the words in Isaiah 26:3: He will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You…because he/she trusts in you!

Oh, that we would live in the moment, one moment at a time; that we would recognize and learn to trust that Your hand goes before us, protects all that is behind us, and provides for us all that we need in this moment and the next.

Love,

Evinda
