Don’t sweat any stuff

You’ve heard it said don’t sweat the small stuff. Some people have said don’t sweat the large stuff.

I say It is all stuff don’t sweat any of it.

I have had so many things go wrong over the last two weeks. It’s comical everything that has happened.

None of it was worth losing my peace over.

My list from the last two weeks.

I received an ugly email that was totally uncalled for two weeks ago. The shower valve mistake. I have to cut a hole in the wall behind the tile to fix.  Another shower we did 2 years ago has developed a leak and has ruined the ceiling in the living room. We have to repair the ceiling and repair the shower. (new shower pan)    The vanity was made wrong and had to be redone. Which meant the countertop was wrong.  It had to be redone. We had unexpected problems with a tub install.  The new countertop that was redone was also wrong. Now we have to redo it a third time.  Holes were drilled wrong for the tub deck tub filler. I was supposed to go on quest and serve, but because of work, I had to stay home. Future ex son-in-law said some things to my daughter, but this time, instead of getting mad and wanting to break legs, I prayed for him instead.

There is peace in my heart.

Now it is Saturday. The tub deck is going to be okay. The shower valve is now going to be okay. The tub is done. I chose not to lose my peace, and now some things have worked out, and I will have a great weekend.

With everything that has happened, I have still managed to meditate between 20 and 40 minutes every morning. The meditation has a big part of the peace that I walk in.

Matthew 11:28-30 (ESV) 28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

So, to summarize over the last two weeks, I had so many instances where I could have lost my peace. I chose to stay in my peace and did not get bent out of shape over stuff. Everything worked out like it always does, except this time, life wasn’t miserable for my wife at home. I wasn’t miserable either.

I know who I am in Jesus. I am the righteousness of God in Him. I am the condition acceptable to God I am as I ought to be.

I did not sweat the Stuff.
