You will keep perfectly peaceful the one whose mind remains focused on you, because he remains in you. ~ Isaiah 26:3
Last night, I had to visit a salon that I had never been to before. I knew the general area where it was, and I used the phone for Navigation. That sounded good except I put the wrong address in the phone and walked into the wrong salon.
Completely embarrassed, I headed back to my car, and drove according to the GPS. This time, the phone sent me in the opposite direction. After 10 minutes of driving, the GPS now said I was 20 minutes away. Then I noticed it was prompting me to ‘re-center’.
I did just that. I re-centered. Pulled the car over, got the correct address, then doubled back in the correct direction. I arrived 45 minutes late and the salon was only one block away from where I originally was.
I had to re-center this morning. I was starting to feel overwhelmed. It is a full plate at work today. As I was preparing for my next meeting, I realized the time and I still have not posted this blog. And out of nowhere the thought comes, ‘so just don’t blog today’.
Oh, I see what this is now. No, I will just skip going downstairs for a break. I am blogging. This is ministry!
The more I am studying the Word, the more I realize that life is not as random as I thought it was. Everything happens for a reason. Every action and every non-action has a pending result.
Three questions to ask yourself when you need to re-center
- Why do you do this?
- What is the purpose God has for you to do it?
- Why do you think you are being distracted from completing it?
Just a few thought for this mid-morning. I’ve had my first cup of coffee but I think a second cup will be coming soon. Enjoy your coffee, stay focused and Power up your day
