Challenges often seem daunting and take over the center of our lives.  It is humanly impossible to not take them seriously or to even try to walk away from them.

The hardest for me is facing a challenging decision I know must be made and not wanting to deal with it.  Avoiding it as long as I can truly makes it seem worse than it is.  That inner voice has already answered me with what needs to be, but often my ear is turned away.

I am overwhelmed with trying to tie in together the last things I need for the workshop as well as making sure I have everything submitted to Mirada and Western Art Collector.  In the midst of this our quick trip to Dallas this weekend, dealing with dogs and doggy day care, paying bills, cleaning my studio and TODAY the photographer is coming... NO, I am not ready.  I am overwhelmed.  As I finish typing this blog this morning I will be scrubbing bathrooms, finishing wash, and getting me ready before Ken arrives with camera in hand.

Terry and I battled with camera and the pictures yesterday and I did complete getting good jpgs of the paintings I have completed for the show in Denver.  BUT I did not get to the things needed by the Rare Gallery in Jackson.  Two steps behind I am afraid as I start this day.

I am centering myself in Christ right now.  He will breathe into the power I need to make this day and complete what needs to be finished.  I affirm my strength through him and will be courageous stepping out to meet this new day.  The wisdom I need will fill my thoughts and words and from my heart I will praise Him.

"Be strong and of good courage, and act. Do not be afraid or dismayed; for the Lord God, my God, is with you."  1 Chronicles 28:20
