Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had spent in doing it, and again, all was vanity and a chasing after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun. Ecclesiastes 2:11
Lord, could you make nothing happen today?
I’m just not in the mood.
No drama. No stress. No surprises, not even the good kind.
Just keep things even keel.
Nothing new to ponder. Nothing requiring thought. Nothing revealing. Nothing to learn.
No new people. No new ideas. Do you hear me? NOTHING!
Except I don’t want to be bored.
I don’t want to be bored and I don’t want to be stagnant.
This is the only life I have to live, and I can’t let it go by with my head in the sand.
Hmm. Do you have some kind of a menu I could look at?
I wish I could pick the people I will interact with, and the situations I will face.
Could I order up a morning that is just mildly engaging? An afternoon that is interesting but relatively unimportant?
Somehow I expect there will be more than that on my plate today.
Thank you, God, for going through it all with me.
Thank you for giving me nothing I can’t handle today.
Even when it ends up being a lot, I have faith that you’ll be near.
And you know what, God?
That counts for SOMETHING, after all.
Have a great week,
