First Things First

I lost them again~

my reading glasses~

the same ones that I

have found before,

but now they are with

the other 20 pair that are lost

& I am trying to see

without them.

Trying to see~

How hard can I try to see

something that I will

never be able to see?

Never hard enough.

Try try try

with all my might

something that

I will never be able to do.

It reminds me of

how I try to

Manufacture sense out of things that don't make sense


Change things from the past


Make something happen that isn't ready to be birthed.

The energy, the strife, the exhaustion~

Trying to do things that really are impossible

for me to do & for you to do.

Is that why

God tells us to

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;" Proverbs 3

when we try to manufacture sense out of things that don't make sense


"Forgetting those things which are behind

and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.

I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:12

~when the pain of the past wants to occupy our minds


"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

~when the impossible is impossible


He's telling me again~

I can't do what He only can do


Stop trying


Stop striving


Stop trying to see what is impossible to see on my own

when I have

and you have

someone who can~

"Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray.

Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers,

letting God know your concerns.

Before you know it,

a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good,

will come and settle you down.

It’s wonderful what happens when

Christ displaces worry at the center of your life." Philippians 4:6



Where are my glasses?

From Me, Myself & I to HIM~

From Rags to Riches.

What are your thoughts & prayers?
