Ok. I am beginning to dislike banks intensely. Protesting on the streets is not my idea of getting my way so I will pray. God can certainly do more than a loud mouth bunch of young people who have no idea what they are protesting.
Banking has become a farce. I would rather do like my ancestors and bury money in the yard. At least I would know where it was, what it was doing and who was not touching it.
A fee here, a fee there; they don’t care. Use to be if you needed to stop payment on a lost check it wouldn’t cost you your arm and now legs! Oh, and the paperwork. A pile of red tape cluttering someone’s desk they can’t find.
How do we survive the measure of expectations? What use to be simple is now an act of Congress: and we all know how that doesn’t work.
In other words, the world travels on money.
Simple is cheap. Complicated is expensive.
The air of complications is leaving many a soul weary.
Buying a house or a car these days reveals when you last relieved yourself.
Signing a legal document requires information from your long lost Aunt.
The Privacy Act forces us parents of college students to speak to at least 6 people in the school’s administration to find out if they got my check for the tuition!
Itemizing your taxes requires an Organizer from your accountant. That excludes the accountant’s labor.
Forget insurance. They don’t pay for anything anyway. Why again do I have insurance? Oh, my husband says we need it. If they don’t pay for anything what am I paying them for? OH! Their trip to Hawaii. They must be meeting with the GSA.
I remember the days of old, easy and slow. Yes, I didn’t know how good I had it.
You know what people? God is still on the throne and his movements are the same. He is not making adjustments to his schedule according to ours.
He hasn’t changed his address, phone number or email. He’s always listening for our call or text. He wants it simple. We have muddled the disorder we already had.
American’s for sure don’t know the meaning of rest. We are supposed to work, but God says his rest in between each duty, praying to him will give us simplicity, peace, health and joy.
My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. (Exodus 33:14)
Our entertainment overload is not only costly financially, but adds to time spent away from God.
Maybe that explains why there is so much depression, anxiety, fear and ill-will.
Maybe that explains why the lethargic view of life is running rampant.
Maybe that explains the hopelessness, anger and defeated attitudes.
The decision to keep or get your sanity back may depend on your simplicity or the lack there of. My sanity is rather important to me…..and those around me.
His realm of peace is another atmosphere away from man’s activities. That realm is found in his presence through our day. The self-assured, self –efficient perfectionist knows no such place. Don’t allow yourself to get caught up in a circus of clogged up animation.
Productive, Godly work occurs during times of rest with him. The secret place of his presence is a miracle waiting to happen.
I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. (Psalm 16:8)
Maybe old Albert knew a little more than just Physics.
