Then the child with a cold started talking… REALLY Loud. Then the youngest tripped and spilled something – it sounded like marbles, but was probably cereal. In the process of helping her clean it up, the oldest knocked over a step stool and it sounded like half the pantry wall got knocked out. At this point, we all but fell into a fit of stifled giggles, trying to be quiet, but failing so obviously.
Have you ever noticed that sometimes when you try really hard to do something, you end up doing the opposite?
Like this: Don’t think about purple dinosaurs.
It worked didn’t it? Was your dinosaur singing and dancing in a circle too?
Now, think about Cinderella’s mice.
Did you stop thinking about purple dinosaurs?
You see, the more you try NOT to do something, the more you do it.
Instead, change what you are focusing on. Start doing what you need to do.
Focus on what you should be doing. If you don’t know, think it through. What do you need to do to become what God created you to be? What would it take to help you do that? Write that down, and start doing it.
Before you can say “bibbity bobbidi boo” you will be well on your way.
