This time I'm going with "Be busy".
Of course, as you may know...
Just be who I am.
Be who God made me to be.
Lately though I've been SO busy. With huge changes at work. With my Mom and Dad buying the house across the road (Yes, Everybody Loves Raymond fans, we are now just like the Barones.) With my brother and sis in law coming to visit for a few days. Just busy. And busy, for me, is good. Very good. Keeps my brain busy. Keeps it from dwelling on sadness, imaginary or real. Keeps me focused on a hundred things at once. Keeps me prayerful, thoughtful and honestly...happy.
Proverbs 13:4 The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.
Life is good.
And as much as I want things to slow down a bit...I don't need them to. I need them to stay crazy and hectic and fun and loud and full of questions with no answers in that manner my brain will have time to heal (finally?) from the depression and anxiety that rocked my world a few years ago.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might, for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going.
The bible says a lot about being too busy, but it doesn't say much about being too still. Stillness for me can cause a lot of damage.
I can be who I used to be.
