Genesis 15:15 (NAS)
And as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age.
Hello Lord. Here I am again. Yes today is one of my old days again. You know what I mean. Not that I'm feeling old, but I guess what I'm trying to say is, I feel over whelmed today. I want to slow things down so I can get more things done. Give me more hours in the day maybe.
I get up early enough, make the bed, start a load of laundry, feed the dogs, and the day begins. It's one thing then another, the phone rings taking up my time, time i set a side to do what I need to get done and what I so wished I could get done.
By noon I feel like I could take a nap, but know I must push forward. On to still another chore and then before you know it, it's time to fix dinner.
I know Lord I feel like I'm complaining again. I have so much to be thankful for. Why if it wasn't for my health I wouldn't be getting up each day to hear the birds sing or see the trees blowing in the wind. I'd miss the fragrant sweet smell of the roses by my front door. Much less be able to clean and cook for the day.
Lord I just miss being able to do things faster. You know like I used to be able to do when I was twenty or even thirty. You say it's my time to slow down and bask in Your glory. Reflect on my life and let You take my hand and lead me. You know that's hard Father. I'm still trying to stay in control. I forget that You are in control.
Thank you Father for reminding me that You are in control of my life. I pray that I call to mind each morning when I first get up and then continually throughout the day that You, oh Lord, are in control. I may not be able to take the steps two at a time but each step I take You are with me. Thank you Lord. Amen.
