GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Let Go. Let God. Man, that is a really cool catchphrase; wish I'd thought of it.
Clever and concise. Direct and bold. Inspirational and firm while all-at-once calming and assuring. Like I said, every writer's dream; coming up with a slogan or tagline so infectous that people repeat it without even thinking about it. Well, today, I'm thinking about it.
Have you ever felt so overwhelmed with a task or by a situation or because of an impending deadline that you were almost paralyzed into non-action? You know, the old "I don't even know where to start" excuse ... so you don't. Yeah, me, too. Sometimes, you just gotta dive right in and hope for the best; you know, have a little faith.
So, let's all take a collective deep breath. I know it's Monday. I know how many shopping days are left until Christmas. I know that pile of DELIVERABLES on your work desk isn't going to TO DO itself. Take a second; hand Him your worries and try your best to do a little good in the world around you.
Believe ... and achieve.
Or Lk 1:39-47 - ...Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb..." And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”
