Stop Sayin’ That!

It slapped me like a bucket of ice-water hitting what seemed to be the entire civilized world during the Lou Gehrig ice-bucket challenge. Woke me right up.

I had been talking to one of my colleagues/mentors, Kelly White, and was filling her in on the latest happenings for G3. Travel plans are being finalized. I’m off to here, need to get a car there, and oh- I have to have an extra day there!

Three trips in less than two months with a fourth likely in that same time frame. And this is just the beginning. Felt like a tornado of joy was busting out of me since things have totally been lining up! This creation is coming alive just right and I am so ready….

But then I said, “You know what makes me nervous though, I am not a photographer. I am not a videographer” and these things are required.

                                              “Stop sayin that,” Kelly ordered.

Boom. There it was.

“You are so right! I’ve got to stop saying that,” I responded.

“Yea- you really do. Because you’ve said it before and it’s not true! I’ve seen some of your pictures and really love them.”

I am not going to say that ever again, I decided.

After a while I was piddling around the house and remembered this sweet little gem: I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.

My heart opened. I could really feel the ease settling in. I decided to text Kelly my new favorite verse- a much better replacement thought now that I have remembered who made me and what I am.

I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me. 

Remember this, it sure does come in handy when you need to shift one of those silly, seedy thoughts.
