I worry, I pray, I pray more… an object in motion stays in motion… 04Jan

I just got so very very anxious worrying about my daughter’s college applications. But I know she’s in good hands and I just started to pray and that calmed my anxiety down… I really do get anxious at times and yet I don’t because I just pray… an object in motion stays in motion. If I keep busy in prayer,  I will stay in prayer.

My anxiety actually freezes me, my prayer moves me into action… an object in motion stays in motion.

I’m human and I need to use my prayer opportunities… I need God – He never stops, I just drift like out in space if I don’t apply the power of prayer… I freeze in stress, and I stop being thankful for the trials… trials bring humbleness,  prayer and direction… an object in motion stays in motion.

Today I had great news that my Dad’s cancer hasn’t spread – that news is sufficient to make me praise over pine…

Cancer is awful,  but this thorn brings with it an action plan of radiation therapy… my Dad and Mom can be in planning,  in attack mode over cancer,  they can be mobile – an object in motion stays in motion.

The little things that caused me strife today I mostly dismissed saying “I can’t complain” especially hearing the encouraging news – actually none of my problems are problems if I think about them compared to God’s long term plan – His plan is in motion – an object in motion stays in motion.

My joy today was also in hearing my mom’s relief – my joy today was feeling that God has my family in His capable hands – my joy is His gift to me – i didn’t make the joy, i only tapped into His… an object in joy stays in joy…

So why do I stress? My stress is my own and my stress I pray is actually purposefully used to move me, direct me, focus me – my stress can also be called a blessing – IF I make it so –  only IF I give it to God, and trade it for an action plan – a plan in motion stays a plan…

So even if the law of inertia says opposition forces cancel, the object that already was in motion stays in motion… so I could say that even if my joy and stress cancel each other out, God’s plan doesn’t, God’s motion is still moving…

So, I pray to align and accelerate with God’s plan….  What’s Your plan Lord?

God’s plan is in motion… it will stay in motion…

You are Lord of us all… You are God… our greatest motion is drawing closer to you.

If I could remember that You’ve got this covered Lord, I could rest…

If I could remember that You took care of all our burdens thru Jesus, and if I could remember that You give Mercy and Grace in Your acts of Love, and if I could remember that I will live with you forever, and if I could remember my forgetfulness, and if I could remember to BE STILL – then I could rest.

I cannot rest Lord until I seek You for rest, and yet that takes me being in motion… I will try Lord to move closer to you. A child in motion in order to gain rest.

Thanks Lord.

Amen
