time. And have you ever noticed how time speeds up as you approach deadlines? As I have less than one month till I leave for the Congo, I am too aware of this and find my time is becoming more and more coveted.
And I notice how poorly organized I am too. And that just seems to make me more frustrated. Because I will never get half the stuff done that I had good intentions to do.
As I run out of time, I also get downright unbearable to live with. There is nothing in particular that I can nail down as a cause for being a grouch. I just am. And I don’t like that. I end up snapping at the people around me that I love the most and need the most.
So, today I was reading in On The Way by Gordon T. Smith that we need to be aware that God is using the ordinary circumstances of our lives to draw us to a deeper relationship with him. That in whatever situation we find ourselves we need to look at how each occaision teaches us to trust God in the midst of it. I can see that but boy God’s got a lot of work to do here. I could sure relax more if I trusted him to take care of more of the little details.
