Simple Vs. Complex….
Some things are so simple, like following a recipe and getting the results you expect. I did that this morning when I made Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Then again some things are so complex. The woman I visit at the hospital wants to go to the movies this afternoon. I am glad to go with her and sit with her, but I need help getting her from the hospital to the theatre. The woman who usually helps is out today I just discovered. Her daughter is ill, but I think I figured out a way to do it. Now I just need to go to the hospital to make sure it is all going to come together. If I can, it will be worth it as she loves to go to the movies.
So simple vs. complex. Just because something is complex is no reason for me not to give it a try. It just takes more effort and a lot more phone calls. I am thankful I am able to be helpful to someone else. But I need to remind myself of that in the middle of making it come together. I need to remember to exemplify trust in Jesus and to be calm in the process.
I know I can do this. I’ve done it before but sometimes it takes a lot of effort. Am I up for that effort? Paul reminds me to give it my all and so I shall.
Father, you give me the faith I need and the grace I must have to accomplish the goals set before me. You are the best. Amen.
