Why is it that I always try to make things harder than they are? I feel like I must be the only person on earth that can take a really easy (pinterest) idea and complicate it!
I love to make note cards and most
of the time I get great satisfaction in seeing a card idea come
together... But last night, I decided to take a really easy card idea
and conclude that it was too easy, and that nobody would like it if I
didn't spend three hours on it. So I made it way more complicated. I
think it's finally coming together...and if it does, I will share it
with you tomorrow. UPDATE: Here's the cards!
The same is true in my Christian life. God says, "whosever believeth in him... " And I
say, but I must read my bible more and I must never get angry and I
must remember to give thanks every day and I must give to the poor and
do this and do that. And I rush here and I try to do this, and try to do that. And I'm always in a hurry. And I keep rushing and reading more and trying and failing and trying. Or not trying because I can't do it perfect(and I'm a failing perfectionist). But God says, "Be still and know that I am God."
Why do I feel the need to complicate things? Why does it have to perfect?
