A Breath of Fresh Air

cb devo aug 12“The waves of death overwhelmed me; floods of destruction swept over me.” Samuel 22:5 (NLT)

It’s Monday and Friday is coming. Friday is the big deadline for several projects. Monday the pressure is on, the papers are not yet designed or printed. Several on the team are on vacation this week. Another project was just handed over to the team. A mandatory meeting is now scheduled on Wednesday. The phone will not stop ringing and the emails number is growing.

Setting project priorities is a great plan until they are all a 1. Suddenly the water level is up to your nose in your mind. Your head is about to explode. You wonder what you have gotten yourself into.

Take a deep breath, stretch your arms above your head, exhale. Ahh, the situation hasn’t changed, but you have taken a moment to catch your breath. Close your eyes and give it to Jesus. Focusing your attention back on Jesus allows you to conquer the world, or maybe that’s not His plan. His plan is possibly to just free you from the stress. Time will tell, but the pressure doesn’t have to be there. The sweetness of having Jesus standing alongside you can bring an overwhelming flow of fresh air and calmness. He alone is the answer to our prayers. He alone can solve the the dilemma. Will you trust him enough to hand it over?

“Father, I can’t do this, there is so much work to be done. It’s only going to get done with Your help. I trust You with my schedule and to do list. Thank You for the reminder to stop and focus my attention back on You.”

For His Glory,
