Her words alone give me peace.

We’re all busy and tasked with the great call of GOD’S WILL, and I’m intimidated by so many thing he asks of me. I have a to-do list a mile long from a grocery run to writing and conducting interviews. It’s all happening RIGHT NOW and the calendar blocks are fast advancing no matter how slow my denial makes me.

Even though the all knowing, all loving, all merciful God calls me one thing or another, and I know I’ll be fine if I focus on him, I’m a big chicken. I’d rather crawl into a hole and cover my ears to make myself deaf to his beckoning than dare step into the uncomfy unknown without an ounce of psychic ability to console me.

But it seems I don’t have to worry about all the daunting details.

It’s just a matter of going minute-by-minute, St. Jane says. Am I doing what God has called me to do right. now? Am I acting out of love toward my vocation this very moment? Ok then, she says. God already has the rest. 

My mother-in-law tells me to just take the next step. Fussing over the endless others won’t give me a lick of peace if I’m so worried I can’t move.

Jesus Christ, uphold me by your might. Give me courage to let go of my worry and wisdom to realize my life is and has been in your hands. Amen.
