Stop. Drop. and Roll.

stop-drop-rollSure, we are technically in Spring at this time of the year, but for some of us, it seems that Winter’s winds and cold temperatures are lingering just a bit longer than desired.  I went to sleep late, and woke up early to start on a two-hour homework that my Linguistic professor emailed yesterday late afternoon!  Deborah need to be awaken and dressed for school.  I needed to shower and prep all the things I need for my 12 hr day (1 hr commute to be at school from 9-6 pm, then commute back for band practice from 7-9 p.m.).

I quickly realized it was going to be a not-so-easy day.  So, right after my shower, I STOP all I am doing heading to my secret place, the corner of my room.  I DROP myself before the throne of God, and I ROLL away anything that may threaten the breath of life in me.  I roll away from my heart and my life those “little” things that have clamored to me driving my mood, thoughts, and emotions crazy.  Just shake it off.

I had to convert:

(my thoughts)—> “to words”—>  \to action\

(He is my first and only, my priority)—>”Lord, you are my everything.  My time, my heart, my life belongs to You.”—> \When He speaks I listen.  When He moves I move.  When He is present He has the right-of-way.\

He is always present.  So, He is first…before myself, before my family, before my career, before ministry, before people and stuff.

I have 6 1/2 hours to go through my day, and I feel sick as a dog!  My head is pounding, my tummy is nauseous, and I have a physics exam in a bit.   My first instinct is to….pewk.  Oh wait, my mental instinct is to wine and pity myself; to focus on my needs instead of my blessings; to stress about finding a part-time job this week; to find a spot at school where I can take a nap in public without looking awkward.   Instead, I return a productive pattern that I know will help me and those around me.  Lord….rescue me!

P.S.  Cruz, STOP. DROP. and ROLL.

    I see you going through your day and wonder how you do it. Balance is important. Like I’ve mentioned to you before, sometimes it’s learning how to say no to things and people. I like the whole “stop, drop, and roll” concept though. Ask God to show you where He wants you to draw that line for balance.

    I love you.
