Has anyone but me noticed the unbelievable amount of conflicting advice that's out there these days? Seriously... if you don't like the report
(coffee is bad for you)
wait five minutes, and another report will come out
(coffee is good for you).
It's quite maddening if you ask me, but the other day I HAD TO LAUGH out loud when it was once again brought before my eyes...
I was at the spa (for medicinal purposes... not kidding), and I was relaxing for a moment before being called back, when I picked up a tiny little book on the table next to me. It was this book... read the title carefully...
Title... "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff...
and it's all small stuff"
As I read, I was absolutely fascinated with the good advice in the book. It was like it was heaven sent to me at that moment. I didn't want to put it down, and as they called my name, I was tempted to slide it in my purse...
(no... I didn't)
but as I put it down I remembered thinking, "You have this book at home somewhere on the shelf!"
I got so excited!
That evening... as I was getting in bed, I remembered to search for the book. Within 2 seconds I had it in my hand. As I glanced down, I noticed something peculiar... it wasn't the same book! Here's the book that has been sitting on my shelf for years... again, read the title carefully.
Title... "God Is In the Small Stuff... and it all matters"
Can you even believe that? Both books gave good advice. I'm a Christian, so I assumed the second book would be better for me... but no... the first book spoke to me where I'm at right now. I need to LET GO of all that small, insignificant stuff that is clogging my creativity, and robbing me of joy.
Anyway, don't ask why, I thought the whole thing was funny, and sad, at the same time. It did remind me though, that there is only one place for the real answers...
seek Him first, and He'll show you what is the small stuff, and what isn't!
