Adjust, 24NOV

I think life is always about doing the best you can until you can’t – then adjust and readjust…

Totally true with my aging parents and family.  Totally true with my kids.  Totally try to remind myself of that for myself – because I slide between denial, engagement, focus, distraction, and frustration… and knowing I’m in blessing…., I’m being my own frustration of emotional pinball ricochet right now – yet I am secured with good blessings of work on all sides to keep me steady – not busy work but bungie cords of life. I need to Be Still, then readjust… I have to lighten my pull on the cords of life and let God move me instead.

Focus, forget the empty rhetoric in my head and just Be Still. Be Still… Let God slide me…

Still Lord, please let me talk this out…

My trip up home readjusted my focus into eldercare and yet being on the outside, logistically, in my own situation is strange… I have to readjust now, without stopping my home-life-work duties completely back where my kids are – hours away, but I see that now is my time here up home is to readjust and support them for their comfort. I see how AMAZING God has provided the best care already for my parents… we are blessed – but we need to pray for those in the stress…

Other have readjusted amazingly well – but I am on the delayed second round of catch up…

It’s tough for so many,  I can say that in comparison it has been easy for me to be dealing with my own tough situations – and I also reminds myself that my issues are not as tough or are different tough – but it’s all relative… mostly I praise that when I have had to readjust, God helped –  thanks Lord… I have to readjust my focus now… everyone has an opinion on what you should do,  but God knows best…

Be Still – we say it all the time but it’s true – be still, pray, listen – so that it is the focus knob that you turn – readjust your focus- then start again.

There is a season to each phase of life – (Ecclesiastes 3) – Sometimes you cross different seasons within one day, many times…

Just try to do your best… just take time to breathe… just readjust as you need… just take time to BE STILL – then listen for your next move…

Know that you are in this world but not of it – and take the long view while you work in the minutiae of your life. Help yourself help others most effectively… it is all about doing your best…

Adjust. Re-adjust. Move.

This is new to me, old hat to many… You are all doing a great job of adjusting – I will catch up… God will help…

Be still, close your eyes, turn the internal focus knob instead… God’s whispers are much louder when you become quiet and still…

Amen
