Day 11: Little Stuff


You can't find IT.

You just had IT in your hand

and now IT is gone.

Your phone. Your glasses. Your mind!

IT happens.

You didn't plan for IT.

IT just interrupts your plan.

IT is silly yet it sends you in a tailspin.

STUFF.

Little piddly STUFF

that becomes so heavy

that it weighs you down,

even though you know it is so little.

What is the STUFF that weighs you down

breeding

FRUSTRATION into a perfect moment?

Oh when THE LITTLE STUFF

strives to get the best of me

is what makes me

FRUSTRATED

because I know better.

But FRUSTRATION IS FRUSTRATION

no matter how you look at it.

If the LITTLE STUFF FRUSTRATES you, you are FRUSTRATED.

If the BIG STUFF FRUSTRATES you, you are FRUSTRATED..

It doesn't matter to GOD

how little or how big the cause of your FRUSTRATION is

because GOD cares about all your

LITTLE STUFF.

If HE

knows ever hair on our head

&

knows when you sit and rise

&

knows every word before you speak it,

don't you think HE cares if you lost your keys?

And HE cares about your

BIG STUFF

because

HE cares about EVERYTHING~

"Do not be anxious about ANYTHING..." (Philippians 4:6)

ANYTHING means ANYTHING~

even if IT is something so little like misplacing your

phone, keys, glasses or

a flat tire~

because if it FRUSTRATES you

it is still FRUSTRATION.

SMALL GOD BIG PROBLEM. BIG GOD SMALL PROBLEM.

GOD is always working behind the scenes,

even when our limited eyesight

is unable to see beyond the clouds.

HIS eyes~

HIS vision for your life is perfect.

HE sees beyond the darkness

HE sees beyond the suffering

HE sees the light at the end of the tunnel

because

HE is the Light

always shining in our lives whether we see it or not.

HE just asks that we

TRUST HIM

in ALL things.

We are not to choose when we want to TRUST

It is easy TRUSTING GOD when everything is running smoothly~

but boy oh boy

when something jumps out of nowhere on my smooth path

is my immediate response to TRUST GOD?

Is your immediate response to TRUST GOD?

Oh how I want to TRUST GOD in

the LITTLE STUFF & the BIG STUFF.

To remain "STILL" in HIS Presence

because I know

HE is ALWAYS GOD,

The LORD of my life.

And when I do

PEACE replaces

FRUSTRATION.

So will you join me

and lose another stubborn pound

that weighs us down ,

by FASTING from

FRUSTRATION.

Instead of allowing the

FRUSTRATION

over STUFF

get the best of you~

"Be Joyful Always" ~in JESUS, because of HIM.

"Pray Continuously" ~communicate to GOD about all your STUFF.

"Give Thanks in All Circumstances" ~not for the circumstance, but in it

"For this is GOD'S will for you in CHRIST"

(I Thessalonians 5:16-18).

But because GOD will ALWAYS be GOD

invite

HIM into your STUFF

because

"THIS IS THE STUFF"*

that HE wants!
