Do you remember "The Wizard of Oz?"
Oh my.....I can't begin to tell you how many times my sister, brothers and I, watched this show!! The first time that we saw it in color......was like being in magic land.
Can you imagine how Dorothy must have felt as she was spinning so fast in the middle of the tornado? Spinning so swiftly, not knowing the minute she might fall.
Our lives are much like the spinning tornado......Each day, so full of busyness! Phones ringing, texting, Dr's appointments, obligations,
meetings, taking care of family......and the list goes on!! It's as if we long for a sweet LOVE AFFAIR with chaos and haste!!!
Our focus is all about.....how much more we can squeeze into a day! Until......we find ourselves in a wretched state of mind. Before we know it, exhaustion sets in and we can quickly become overwhelmed.
The first thing that I do when I set myself up for the fall is......Cry!
Cry, because I realize that I have once again overloaded my day.
But.....did you know that a simple name spoken.....the name of JESUS, calms my weary soul?
Oh Lord....forgive me for the many times that I have turned the knob to the spinning cycle in my life!! Thank you for always being there to catch me in the middle of my storms..
Call on the name of JESUS!!
My Steps of Faith....
