~The Ocean Series~ Sailing Off into the Sunset

The sail boat glides across the water as the red, orange and coral sun sets over the horizon.  The pace is that of someone not worried about time, or what is in the future or past.  The only concern is the present. They are not worried about solving someone else’s problems.  Sailing off into the Sunset…literally it seems.

 I believe a lesson for me right now is simple for my mental health. I cannot help everyone solve their problems.  I cannot “mother” everyone I come in contact with….I can love them, but not take on those burdens as my own.  

My “type A” personality has done that my whole life.  As the eldest of three with divorced parents, I took charge.  I was the one who had to make sure everyone was ok. 

This past week the Lord has allowed me to rest, and learn.  I can only do what I can do.  And I hear this “the very thing you are gifted in is the thing that can destroy you.”  My sweet friend told me that long ago.  She was prophetic I think.

My compassion for others has come close to destroying me a few times.  But the Lord in His wisdom helps me remember that I am not to be consumed with “fixing” everyone.  He can take care of them…I just need to let Him and not try to do it myself! I often worry about situations that God has already worked out, I just need to step out of the way.

So in the sail boat I glide, watching the sunset.  Breathing and living life in the moment….in the here and now.

Feel free to join me, just don’t expect me to do all the guiding!

Erase That!

 

I love sharp pencils. So much so that my friend at the station brought me some mechanical ones. And of course, it must have a full eraser.

I noticed the other day something interesting though, when you erase something….part of it still remains. You truly cannot erase everything. Even if you think you have done so, there is still an impression that the pencil has left.

Like our past, we truly can never rid ourselves of it. Our past can actually be our focus, or we can leave it there and look to the future.

We learn from our past if we allow the Father to use it in our lives.

Or we can keep trying and trying to erase that word instead of moving forward onto the next one.

I think I will keep looking forward, but will use that eraser when needed!

Past, Future, Now

Life can get chaotic, and ours has been that way for a few weeks.  But the good news is that God’s got it.  And He has got your chaos too.

He Is in our past, future and now

Prayers appreciated for three of our loved ones dealing with major health issues right now.  And I will be glad to pray for you too!
