Creative Curations


This has been one of my toughest life lessons. I still struggle with it to this very day. Trying to be sure that I am in control, making sure I am never outpaced, outthought, or outright wrong. The weight of carrying your entire life on your own shoulders is just like you would imagine when you gaze upon sculptures of “Atlas” trying to hoist up the weight of the world on his back. It is crushing. Add onto that the weight of being a good Spouse, Parent, Christian, a good friend/coworker/citizen.... the weight piles on and on...... and on. And it will continue to press us down, perhaps so far down into the earth that we enter an early grave. If we try to support this weight alone, on our own, it will eventually destroy the very things we are trying to carry. Being the “Boss” of your own life sounds impressive. We are lured into believing that this is real power. But ultimately, we will come face-to-face with REAL POWER, and trust me, it isn’t going to be our reflection in the mirror that we see. It will be HIS feet as we kneel before His Throne! Remember this.... "We can gather our thoughts, but the LORD gives the right answer. People may be pure in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their motives. Commit your work to the LORD, and then your plans will succeed. The LORD has made everything for His own purposes, even the wicked for punishment. The LORD despises pride; be assured that the proud will be punished. Unfailing love and faithfulness cover sin; evil is avoided by fear of the LORD. When the ways of people please the LORD, He makes even their enemies live at peace with them. It is better to be poor and godly than rich and dishonest. We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps." Proverbs 16:1-9
Just relinquish control to Him.... its a whole lot easier this way, trust me! His way is better and His burden is lite. (I speak directly to my inner self in this post.)
