Overwhelmed Helps

My new management job is pushing me to the limits. I love the work and I believe in the importance of the mission. This is a one year position so I keep telling myself "You can do anything for only one year."

I am using every project management gem of wisdom I have ever learned.

Since I have little time to do anything but work I am calling on bloggers.

You are the smartest folks I know!!!

So what works for you when deadlines are overlapping and a staff looks up and asks "What's next?"

I'm all into Gantt charts, post it notes, datebooks, Outlook and anything I can work on in Excel and Access.

Champs....I can't wait.

Oswald Chambers' daily devotion gets me where I need "getting."

Yesterday I was all into "my" stuff in my head. As I read the day's wisdom nugget I felt the pinch of conviction. Chambers wrote that whatever initiates a believer to abandon their self efforts will eventually drive them to a time alone with God; ready to hear Him.

Chamber's word for "stuff" was fussy things. Yes, again, Chambers nailed me. Today I rest in God being all He says He is in His Word. I trust Him. My life of possible worries...fussy man-created chaos...will not steal my joy and strength.

Away with the fussy! On with what truly matters forever.

In God I trust.

Neglect Will Bite

I have neglected this blog. My laptop broke. My new job as manager in Census 2010 takes most of my time. So...I put off this blog until LATER.

Some sexy little poster littered the blog. Isn't that what happens in all kinds of places when we fall into neglect?

I'm back. Perhaps I'll only post a word...but I will not fall back into neglect. It's just too dangerous with litter so prevalent in cyberspace.

Happy New Year.........Thrive Christians, and don't fall into the valley named NEGLECT.

Thrive In Christ

Who I Am In Christ by Neil Anderson

For several months we will center on this book to pursue Thriving in our Christian journey.

Neil challenges us with: "Do you know who you are in God's eyes? We are no longer products of our past. We are primarily products of Christ's work on the cross. Who we are determines what we do.

You are not who you are in Christ because of the things you have done, you are in Christ because of what He has done. He died and rose again so that you and I could live in the FREEDOM of His love."

That's just the introduction. More to follow.
