Tackle it Tuesday

 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
   I will be exalted among the nations,
   I will be exalted in the earth.” 
Psalm 46:10
This Tuesday I didn't do anything just spectacular. I should have worked on a quilt but I can't seem to get the fabric laid out right. I made sure dishes were done, did some wash all the normal chores that seem to be never ending. This afternoon I picked up Jakob from school, got him a snack at Mc D's and then helped him get settled over at the college to take the Compass test- this test is the college entry test, he has to have it to take a Pre Calculus Dual Credit class next year. In my heart I know he will do fine but I admit we were both a little nervous. It would be great if he passed all three sections the first time, then the test was free- always a very helpful bonus. 
Psalm 37:7-9
Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper—it only leads to harm. For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.
Today I felt like I am just going through the motions of life. There are brief moments of enjoyment but there is a craving for more. So I have been thinking on how to achieve more. I am so incredibly thankful that this is Taks testing week for the kids. We have no homework this week so its nice and slow. Its a great week to re-evaluate and become more at peace with myself. I guess sometimes that makes a good tackle it tuesday. Just time to be still and listen.
Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.


  1. You're inspiring me tonight. I feel so worthless when I am not busy doing something - anything. I need the reminder to wait on the Lord.


Pleasant words are as a honeycomb: sweet to the soul and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:24
