I ran across this verse last summer. This is the second time I have illustrated it, and I may do it again. This has become a guiding verse for me. Because really? We all know I am talkative. And I have the tendency to beat an issue into the ground. and so now, I just STOP, refocus and PRAY to God about it.
I am like, “Jesus…this is bugging me and I cannot wrap my head around it. I have talked about it, gathered opinions and information, but I have not done the one thing I needed to: give it to you. So it is yours now, I am handing this over, and I know that you are the only one who can give me the right answer. I know, I know, shoulda come to you first. Shoulda, coulda woulda. But you know, I am human and all. I am here now. I am recognizing you and your power. Help me, guide me, love me. Amen”
Here is the cool part: IT WORKS! HALLELUJAH!
You should totally try it some time.
