One pot of chicken and dumplings overflowing in 3, 2, 1, go!!!In this moment of revelation, it hit me. that's exactly what I've been doing. I've been adding so much to my pot that I have zero room for anything else. No matter how small or minute, how special or obscene, silly or necessary. There has been no extra room because I've made it that way. I've been stressing out trying to figure how to fit it all in without it just overflowing like those dumplings. And my stress level is beyond maxed.
But you see, God gave us the perfect size pot that He thought we needed. If we think we need more room, than we should reach up to Him and allow Him to show us the way. Instead of adding all of those extra ingredients, we should follow the perfect recipe and allow Him to do the tweaking.
That's what I'm gonna do.
So here I am Lord.
None of the fancy, schmancy schtuff.
Take my heart Lord and form it.
Now in the case of the dumplings, a bigger pot was necessary. There was no way that all of that goodness was gonna stay put. But, for us, let us be content with our small pot and the simple things inside.
