Today is going to be a good day.
Today I’m a bit fearful because I have so much to do. Here’s my list:
- Get my study done
- Get ready for the day
- Prepare for two meetings with the U
- Have reports ready for both the team and the boss
- Make sure I know what the team wants to know (follow up with them via email)
- Compile all the work we’ve been doing for the following:
- Google Analytics
- SEO Assessment
- Google Local
- Category re-creation
- PPC suggestions
- Make sure it’s all orderly, straight forward, and provides a good perception of the work we’ve been doing
- Leave on time so I’m not late for the first meeting
- PLUS I have these other things to do:
- The ONE/Epic transfer and re-design
- Hire my contractor for that
- VT project – get the wireframe finalized and sent, then begin preparing to execute on that
- AD – get that site ready to go live
- AA – get all the content transferred over from the old site and get site ready to go live
- NW – get all the products entered and get site ready to go live
- FUT – make final edits and get invoice ready
- LG – get the documentation to them and get site ready to be finalized
- MT – get final edits made that she’s requested, invoice her
- LI – send out new email campaign
And really the list could continue…
So, my study today is going to be about submitting to God, replacing fear with faith, and not letting that fear put me in a bad place.
When I sent to LDS.org, ironically one of the featured articles/videos is titled, “Eliminate Your Fears with Faith.” It’s video of when Christ and his apostles are out on the water and there is a storm. Christ doesn’t seem to be concerned but his apostles are fearful that they are going to sink.
He stands and says, “Peace, be still,” and the storm calms. He then asks them, “Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith?”
I want to read more about this.
There’s a talk by Elder Quintin L Cook that looks interesting: “Live by Faith and not by Fear.”
Here are some of the things that stuck out to me.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
This makes me feel good – I know that as I put my priorities in order, He will be there to clear my mind, help me use my time best, and get things done.
I feel this simple statement is an answer I need today:
It is our faith in Jesus Christ that sustains us at the crossroads of life’s journey. It is the first principle of the gospel. Without it we will spin our wheels at the intersection, spending our precious time but getting nowhere. It is Christ who offers the invitation to follow Him, to give Him our burden, and to carry His yoke, “for [His] yoke is easy, and [His] burden is light” (Matthew 11:30).
I like this scripture too (D&C 6:34-36)
34 Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail.
35 Behold, I do not condemn you; go your ways and sin no more; perform with soberness the work which I have commanded you.
36 Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.
I know that today will be ok.
I know that, in the time I have before I have to leave, I can compile lots of good work that has been done.
I’m grateful for the feelings of peace I get as I try to put God and His Son first in my life.
I look forward to a day today where I can submit my will to Him and live in recovery.
I am grateful for the answers I’ve received.
