I read this passage recently in my daily devotional. Not only did it speak to me, but it seemed to jump right out of the page and grab hold of me. I always feel like I am one of those performers that can spin several plates at once and just keep them spinning simultaneously. Each activity or event in my life represents one of those spinning plates. If I don't keep an eye on everything, all at once, one or more of those plates will come crashing to the ground and break into hundreds of pieces.
It would be easy to say that I'm only going to spin one plate at a time. However, that's simply not me. I would be completely bored out of my mind. I enjoy the multitasking. I enjoy the many activities and busy schedule. It helps me stay organized and on top of things. It makes me keep an eye on ALL of the spinning plates.
But this does not come with ease. All these activities comes with stress, worry, and may I dare say, doubt. It's only human nature to wonder if we can handle the busyness of our lives and if we can make things flow smoothly.
But this is where our faith in God needs to stay strong. When we get tired and weary is when God takes over. In fact, God is there for us the entire time. We just need to remember to let Him handle it. ALL the time. Why do we worry so much? Why do we stress so much?
I have many plates spinning right now. However, I'm learning to just let God take over and I'm going along on the journey. I'm not saying I have absolutely no stress in my life, but I'm able to handle everything in a much more peaceful way. Life won't end if my house isn't spotless or my To Do list isn't finished. It's okay if dinner isn't ready right on time or if there aren't two different veggies on the plate.
God is in control, always has been, always will. We just need to stop worrying about dropping the plates and God will keep them spinning.
