The last 7 to 10 days my morning meditation has been very difficult it’s been hard to relax. Lots of thoughts going on in my head. I went into this morning’s meditation with the same attitude that it’s gonna be difficult. I had surgery 5 weeks ago on my hand it’s not been doing well I have surgery in a week and a 1/2 on my left shoulder and then my Jobs, Lots of stuff. But we all have lots of stuff.
Yesterday there was a mistake made on my huge kitchen job. This mistake could easily be 15K. When the young man came to me yesterday and said, Kevin. I messed up. My 1st thought was oh c*** what has happened. And I felt like Holy Spirit said be calm son Don’t react. He told me what he did and I put my hand on his shoulder and very calmly said we will find a solution. I think most general contractors would have completely come unhinged. The mistake was he missed cut the hole for the cooktop on the counter top. I have found a solution and hopefully the clients will go for it. It’s a professional solution But at the same time in my spirit there’s a concern.
Back to my normal meditation as I sit down I started thinking about the job and I hear John 13 so I chose to read John 13 1st before I meditated. It’s when I got to John 14 That I begin to understand What this morning was going to be about.
John 14.1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.
Right then I thought now I need to meditate . What I listen to is 30 minutes long and it’s just piano. I started my breathing process and immediately got into my heart zone. The 30 minutes went by like the snap of a finger as soon as the music was over I got out of my heart zone and I was awake and I had complete Peace about the situation. Whatever happens I will take care of business because that is what I do.
I went back looking through John 13 And realized I was in John 12 and I had landed on this passage.
John 12:49 (ESV) 49 For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment—what to say and what to speak.
I believe this is what happened to me when the young man came to me with his mistake I said what Jesus told me to say.
I discovered this song a couple weeks ago and I just can’t get enough of it, it’s from Bethel. You Might have heard it
