Balancing Act

Since no ducks were harmed in this video, I thought I would share a little bit on life lately. (How funny is it btw?)

I feel it is an accurate representation of how I've been feeling! As of late it seems as though just as I feel like maybe I have all my ducks in somewhat of a row, a wind comes along and ruins everything.

As I sit here and stare at the three very long, time consuming and vastly different to-do lists, I'm feeling overwhelmed. In life, I am typically the do-er. I am a free-spirit at times, but when I have things to do I like to conquer them quick and efficiently. This, as you can imagine, often gets me into trouble.... especially in times like right now when I have so many things to do.

The point of this post however, isn't to ramble and complain (although it very easily could be! haha) You see, it is in the midst of this chaos that I can hear God's voice calling out to me to "be still..." After taking a few deep breaths and listening to His voice, peace has flooded me and my mind is finally calm.

Its then I realize that the wind was indeed a blessing, messing up my perfectionist ways... allowing me to be knocked off balance, and leaving me reaching out for Him to help me find solid ground again.. I know that He is looking out for me, waiting for me to bring everything to His feet, not just the times that I feel overwhelmed. Why is it that I still cling to doing things on my own? He clearly knows what is best for us...

If only I would remember, God controls the wind as well.
