Things that make you go “hmmmmmm”

I woke up early in the morning feeling a bit rested but since a) it was dark and b) I figured it must be middle of the night I just got up to go to the bathroom. So I go back to sleep. Because it’s dark. But I couldn’t  sleep. All the things that I had yet to complete for the month began running around  my head – tag teaming it. I’d think of one. Then Tag- would go to another. I hate tossing and turning and not being able to sleep 🙁

Phil 4:19 popped into my head. “My God shall supply all my needs according to His glorious riches in Christ.” Ah yes thank you Lord for the reminder. And the peace that comes from that. Basically he reminded me that I just need to make my list of things to do and tackle the list in chunks. That made me feel better. But still not sleepy. So after some prayer time, Continue reading “Things that make you go “hmmmmmm””

“You do not have because you do not ask God.” James 4:2b

Last week when I blogged about my struggles regarding this upcoming trip and my needs, I felt God also remind me of the verse above…

Along with Malachi 3:10 “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”  Josh 1: 9

That sounded like a good place to start. With a word from the Lord, right? Compared to the word of God, all our present sufferings seem void. And what am I suffering from really? My thoughts drift from “yeah! Let’s do this” to “nah, I really don’t want to do this.” I don’t want to write support letters or fill out a visa application or travel across the world and then travel within that country.

Books… I love them!

I renewed my library card this week. Excitement alert!!

I renewed the card, registered to vote (don’t judge), paid my fine (or you can’t renew:) and checked out a few more books. I love books. I asked the librarian if she had read any Dorothy Frank Denton books and she said she had heard of her… But hadn’t had time to read that author.

I turned around to survey the library and said “yep. There sure are a lot of books and not a lot of time.” Then I had a mini panic attack. sooo many books… Sooo little time! I started thinking about all the books and all the authors and it was overwhelming and yet “challenge accepting” at the same time. (Read : “challenge accepted” says Barney – HIMYM- How I Met Your Mother).

I was then thinking of how awesome it would be if my job was to read books. Just sit and read. Wait… isn’t that called an editor? or a Publicist? And if I was one of those, I would probably have to read all kids of books… hmmmm… Note to self: add to my list of “what I want to be for a day.”

I like it!
