It’s Chalkboard Week. If you missed one:
Todays Chalkboard: “I will finish what I sta” (written only once implying the text would be: I will finish what I started)
Bart didn’t and wasn’t likely to finish his list. He was excited. He raced out of the classroom and the school. Too often when you and I don’t finish something we don’t skip away we trip and fall over the pile of unfinished.
Sometimes I feel like a failure.
Whether it’s feeling overwhelmed, “I don’t have enough money”, “there’s not enough time”, or just being lazy, a fear of failure or the fear of success, or the classic “I’ll get to it later”, sometimes things just don’t get done.
As the frustrations pile up, I wonder what else could go wrong.
Jesus offers us a strategic program to defeat the giant of worry.
Jesus said, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” 1
David Jeremiah summarized it this way: 2
– Don’t dwell on yesterday’s mess
– Don’t dwell on yesterday’s success
– Don’t dwell on yesterday’s distress
Which of those three messages have you had the most success with?
1 – Matthew 6:34
2 – David Jeremiah’s book Slaying Giants is available here on Amazon.com
