Great ideas but ...

I don't know if you do this or not but I have great ideas for my blog while driving or doing something where I can't write things down. Then when I get ready to do my post, I can't for the life of me remember what my great idea was. Very frustrating.

Don't know if it's a sign of age or stress. But either way, I have had some wonderful and profound thoughts to share that have floated off into Never Never Land. If they return, I'll let you know.

Today though, I remembered (a miracle!). Have you seen the movie "Flywheel?" It is a movie with a Christian message and is very good. Short synopsis - a man owns a used car business and is not doing well. He recognizes that on his own he has made a mess of things. He turns the lot and the business over to God and things improve tremendously.

I got to thinking about the things in my life that would be better if I just turned them over to God and trusted in His plan. It's a hard thing to do. We (I) want to be in control of my life and there are many things I don't do all that well.

It's easy to say we have turned our lives over to God but I think we need to be more specific and intensional. Pick a part of your life to turn over to God and then pick another and another until you really have turned your whole life over to Him.

So today, I am turning my church over to God and trusting in his mercy and grace. I am excited to see how He will work.

I feel much better now!


  1. Thank you so much for your nice words on my blog post! I really appreciate it!

    And let go and let's such a simple idea, yet so hard to implement. I need to work on that as well.
