When I sit in a coffee shop and watch the busyness of the people it reminds me of my day. From the moment a get up in the morning till the moment I put my head down my day reminds of that coffee shop. The making of meals or coffee, washing laundry and or dishes, making sure people are place where they need to be, picking up things that are laying around the house, and just the plain orchestration of our home life. Busyness.
There are times though it brings comfort I wonder if this is what God wants for me, and how He wants me to live my life. I have to be honest at one time I would have said yes. But lately God has been gently leading me to realize that no I don't want you to live your life just in the busyness of "life". God wants me, actually desires me, to live my life in the peace presence of Him.
For the longest time I really did not know what that meant. I find comfort in the busyness. I find comfort in that coffee shop. But how much more comfort do I find when there is peace in those moments. How much more purpose do I find when I have the reassurance of a plan whether I know what it is or not.
When I start my day with my Friend. When I let go of my expectations and just be I find peace. Yes I still have my to dos, dishes, laundry, and never ending lists. The difference is I know that there is a purpose, a plan. I know He has my back and if a hiccup or problem comes up God's got me covered. And I get started on the hustle and bustle of my day.
Thank you that you came here to bring me peace,and a purpose. Thank you that you made this day just for Your plan in my life. Let me rejoice and seek You. For you are my footsteps that go before me each and every day. And I rejoice in that.
In Jesus name,
