Here, There and Everywhere

Matt 11:28-30
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
“Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls.
“For My yoke is easy, and My load is light.”

Yesterday we finally got a break in the snow. Our puppy jumped at the door, excited to get out and play. After a little while, I went to an upstairs window to see if I could see where she was. I didn’t see her, but I saw where she’d been. Here, there and everywhere! She’d circled over here, then run straight across to something else, then meandered around over there for a bit. She’d dug a hole here and there – looking for buried treasures. Then I finally found her … sitting at the back door, waiting to come back into the house!

As I stared at all those circles and mixed up tracks – running here, there and everywhere, I felt like that was how my life is. Running here, there and everywhere.

The snow is back again and as I look out that same window, all the little puppy tracks are gone. No more here, there and everywhere. No more holes dug in search of buried treasure. It’s all white again. All wiped clean – ready to start out on a new adventure. Ready to start again.

Lord, help me today as I start out on another day. A day wiped clean from all that has happened yesterday, and the yesterday before that, and the yesterday before that. Thank You so much for taking all those yesterdays and dying on the cross to wipe out all my sins, all my wanderings of yesterdays. Help me live today for You Lord. Make my path straight. Give me wisdom and guidance as I seek You and Your strength today.
