Well, I’ve mulled it over all weekend and again, here we are – a new week – what on earth happened to last week? Gone…just vanished into the great dense nothingness.  And once again, I feel like nothing was accomplished. Ok….so pick yourself up and let’s begin again.

Time to weigh in for the upcoming week. Forget the physical – if that comes that will be a joy in and of itself…but this is a spiritual weigh-in.  An evaluation of sorts … and it still feels like I’m on the bottom rung of acceptance. But maybe I’m too hard on myself – I find most women beat themselves up needlessly when everyone around them thinks they are just simply the best. Yep…I’m one of them for sure. Spend way too much time in the would’ve, could’ve, should’ve lanes. How do you rate on that? Well, it IS weigh-in time. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

Ok – so now that you’ve beat yourself up on all the things you could’ve, should’ve, would’ve done if you had known better about something, think on this. Is this where you want to live? Me either. Nada. So, let’s climb out of that slimy pit together and learn how to completely rest in Him. It’s really not as difficult as we make it out to be, it’s simply a matter of just doing it. Consider this offer from the Holy One Himself.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”  (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Simple as that. Read each word and just do it. Don’t over-theorize it, don’t break it all down, don’t examine each letter and turn it over into Hebrew or Greek or whatever…..just take it for what it is and do it! Are you with me?  Let me know how you have acknowledged Him this day – no matter what you are ‘looking’ at.

    It’s about trusting that He works ALL things (even the mistakes and regrets) together for good. He teaches us to learn from them and do better next time. And He uses it to teach others in our lives who are watching. When we sit around beating ourselves up for all the ways we think we messed up, we are really saying we don’t trust that He can work ALL things together for good. Instead, we are supposed to just acknowledge those things, setting them forever at His feet and thank Him for being a redeeming God who can transform our mess ups into blessings.
