LAZY MAN’S LOAD 2

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

LAZY MAN’S LOAD.

 

 

The other day I was helping a friend carry some stuff. I already had a good load  in my arms and as I reached for just ONE more thing, this tiny little thought entered my head, “Don’t ! You have enough. You might break something. Just come back for a second load.” But did I Listen? NO.

And everything was going great until ………… To be continued. 🙂

Perfect Peace

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.
 Trust ye in the Lord for ever:
for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

Isaiah 26:3-4

Wow!

Perfect Peace and Everlasting Strength, I did nothing to deserve such promises but that is how much my Jesus loves me.

Duty

 

    “Duty is ours, results are God’s”  

(John Quincy Adams)   

 

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.   For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
