more reflecting

Today's reminder (from my daily reflection cards)...

"You shall be my people, and I will be your God."
~Jeremiah 30:22


I needed this reminder today. Boy, did I ever.
I mean, as good Christians...it's easy to know that obviously, we don't worship any other gods, right?! I'm sure there's only one. And I know he's kind and merciful and steadfast...and all that good stuff. Got it.
Buuuuuut... (there's always a but,) how is it that I should worry and be anxious about so many things of this world then? Why am I so wrapped up in things and stuff and perceptions? What am I giving most of my attention to these days?
I am his...you are his. We are his people. His peeps. Chosen, created, recipients of his mercy and love.
He is my God...your God. No other thing, or person, or activity, or superhero of our time, or any time for that matter can fill the God-shaped hole in each of our hearts. No other thing. Nothing. (Forget the things Jamie.)
I hear Him whispering, "Turn your focus Jamie, to Me. I'm where it's at. The rest...well it's not really yours to worry about, is it. Fah-get about it!"

I think you answered all of your own questions with the last three words of your blog. Nothing will come to pass except your life but your soul will go on to where you most want it to. So as far s the rest...fuh-get about all the daily trival things that one of us can solve anyway.

I needed this one big time today. Thanks for sharing, I'm really trying hard to forget and bring God closer to my heart. I have even listened to the rosary on my ipod at work this morning hoping to do just that, fuh-get.
