how to begin

it's a new week, and we've got loads to do. boring life stuff, mentally and emotionally draining stuff...and it just so happens that i don't feel like doing anything at all. ha! i mean, i want to do fun things, but not work. while it's tempting to let the weight of all the tasks ahead of me crush cheerfulness, i'm fighting for a better focus. because even if everything doesn't get done in my time-frame, even if i don't get to do many "fun" things this week, i have plenty of reason to praise the lord. 

i'm heading to lunch with my babe before the busy begins, but i'm popping in here quickly to remind you of what i was reminded of this weekend. nothing is too heavy for us. emotionally, physically, spiritually, the lord is our help and our strength. setting our hearts and minds on him first, everything else just works. trust his schedule. trust his security. trust his success. 


but the lord god helps me; therefore i have not been disgraced; therefore i have set my face like a flint, and i know that i shall not be put to shame. he who vindicates me is near. who will contend with me? let us stand up together. who is my adversary? let him come near to me. behold, the lord god helps me; who will declare me guilty? behold, all of them will wear out like a garment; the moth will eat them up. who among you fears the lord and obeys the voice of his servant? let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the lord and rely on his god. isaiah 50:7-10
