reminder

As I look around this world is in one big mess.

The words formed in my mind – “You can change the world for the better”.

My mind seemed to whine back – How can I change the world when I have days that I can’t even get my own act together?

The words came back – “You already have everything you need to change the world”.

How can that be, I really don’t have that many talents or abilities?

“I am not looking for ability but availability – your availability to Me”.

How can You really use me, I’ve made so many mistakes and failed so many times?

“No matter the mistakes, the failures or the downfalls – what matters is that you get up and try again”.

How will I know what to do?

“Have you tried reading the Instructions?”

I have read the Instructions but I need someone close to talk to – to explain them so I can better understand.

“But I have already said in the Instructions that all you have to do is to come close to Me and I will come close to you”.

Yes Lord, thank You for that reminder. ec

You had an excellent dialogue. I wish more of us would have one like it.

I'm sure the world is better because of that too.

I think the Lord has given you plenty to do.
The trouble with us is we never we do enough to satisfy ourselves, so think we aren't doing all that the Lord wants of us. He will let us know.
Relax,

SSN - I totally agree.

brenda - I think many of us need to have a reminder now and then.

itsboopchile - Thanks for the advice, I'm talking to Him about the whole situation.

margaret cloud - Sometimes a feeling of hopelessness will overtake us if we don't draw close to the One that empowers and encourages. ec

It's so difficult sometimes to look around me. Nevertheless, we keep on keeping on.

granny - I agree that the looking around is sometimes difficult but then I realize Who is really in control and my soul is quieted. ec
