And everything was going great until………………………. The bag on top of the box I was carrying started to fall and I did not move fast enough.
So the brand new mug that my friend had just bought hit the cement floor and you guessed it, BROKE.
If only I would have listened to that tiny little thought I had earlier.
Although my friend was very nice about it and I offered to buy a new one I still felt awful.
Then she told me “You know what my Mother would have said, you were hauling a Lazy man’s load”.
That is a great thing to remember for our everyday lives.
Sometimes I ask God what He wants me to do, He will show me something, then with all my excitement I start piling things up then I hear a still small voice “That’s enough for right now” and do I listen?……. sometimes I do but when I don’t then comes the big crash and I feel like a failure.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11
I encourage you as I remind myself, don’t carry a lazy man’s load.
Two or three successful loads is better than one disastrous load.
So we need to listen to God’s still small voice and try to avoid a lazy man’s mess. 🙂
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
