Did you know that I used to buy/collect Longaberger baskets? I loved those handcrafted baskets so much that I actually became a distributor/seller for them, but only so that I could buy them for myself at cost. I had ever basket in the catalogs, and I would even purchase old and discontinued baskets on eBay. My house is filled with baskets. They are in drawers, on top of cabinets, on my desk, my clothes hamper, my trash can, they hold blankets, spoons, washcloths, toiletries, toilet paper, spices, clothing, etc. You name it, I’ve probably got the basket. Joe tells me that I have an obsessive personality and that I go “all in” when I find something that I like. I can’t argue with him about that, because it is probably true.
I had read one time that the shoe brand ADIDAS stood for “all day I dream about sports.” I have later heard that wasn’t true, but it still made me create my own ADIDAB logo that stood for “all day I dream about baskets.” Yes, I know, it was pitiful.
There are times when I still have an ADIDAB kind of day. Now, it is dreaming about the blog, instead of about baskets. Those are the days when I am overwhelmed with work, or I need to take more photos because the last bunch was terrible. This past week when I have so many problems with the hosting, I was a constant mess and thought about the issue all day long. Looking back at my week, I realize that I had my thoughts in the wrong area.
Why was I so busy trying to fix everything? Do I know anything about hosting? Am I an IT person who knows how to fix those types of problems? The answer is capital NO!
3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
Don’t you just love the Bible? If you consult the “word” of God, then you might find the answer to your problem. Here was the solution to my issue in Jeremiah 33. You can’t get much plainer than that. Why wasn’t my first response to call upon the creator of all things? Why didn’t I ask Him to guide me through my issues? And, just to make sure that I now realize how foolish I had been, I stumbled upon this verse.
26 Those who trust in themselves are fools,but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.
I think that my new acronym needs to be ADIDAG, which stands for, “all day I dream about God.” God is obsessed with me, and He thinks about me all day long. He watches over me from the moment that I wake up until I lie down at night. The Lord gave His only Son for me, and He would do anything for me. God has my back!
Lord, I am ALL IN!
Have A Blessed Day!
