Well, I set myself up to write this morning, and boom, Comcast decided that it was time to rest a router or something and my most important internet connection was unavailable. So, now I am multitasking writing and meeting and trying to focus on mutliple things at once – wishing I could be disconnected.
After yesterday mind freeze, one would think that I would bust out a super entry today, but the cold weather in the deep south has continued to freeze my brain. So I asked myself, if I could do one thing today, what would it be. What would be my one goal. I decided it was at the end of the day to find joy in the day.
Joy – not the I spending the day at Disney joy, but the Jesus Other You type of joy. The joy that comes from spending the day with your proirities in order, so that at the end of the day you are able to say ‘Yes, that was a day where things are in place.’ (That’s not to say its a day thats is perfect or without trouble, its just a day when you handle all that stuff in a way that screams – Jesus Others then You).
That seems like something to attempt to do today. Let’s see if we can make this a joyfilled day!
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:3-11 (New International Version, ©2010)
