“We Are Operating in Standing Room Only”

“We’ve got too much to do to entertain folks who just want to lay around and do nothing.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

. . . and so did Psalm 118:1-5 (NKJV) 1 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 2 Let Israel now say, “His mercy endures forever.” 3 Let the house of Aaron now say, “His mercy endures forever.” 4 Let those who fear the Lord now say, “His mercy endures forever.” 5 I called on the Lord in distress; The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.

“I think it’s safe to say that we have all felt overwhelmed in the past if not feeling that way right now! Look, we all feel that heavy load – you know the weight of work deadlines, financial responsibilities, and even the fear of starting our lives after high school or college – but it’s something that accompanies us in our destiny walk. The key to enduring those pressures is to continually give God praise no matter what burdens we bear. Let’s show Him we got this so He can elevate us to the next level. We also need to recognize that when our plate is at full capacity, a.k.a. ‘Standing Room Only’, we should surround ourselves with folks who are helping to carry that load, not those who add extra weight. It’s a new year with new opportunities, but with those new opportunities will come new haters and new problems. Let’s welcome the opportunities along with problems, cast the dead weight that’s tagging along and slowing us down, and remember to give God thanks at all times. Let’s stop complaining about things being ‘too much’ and take one thing at a time and after our load is lightened and we can celebrate success, let’s cease from too much self-gratification and give praise where praise is due.” – #ToddCPittman
