An Omelet Without Eggs Ain't Gonna Work

Mindy here, with a question for you. Do you ever feel bogged down by life? Stuck in the muck and the mire, trying desperately to move forward, yet your steps are slow, hindered? You tire. You stumble. You wonder why you're doing what you thought you were called to do. You feel like giving up.

Still, we act like Superwoman, carrying the weight of the world, struggling to do things under our own power, absolutely wearing ourselves out.

When God designed us, He made us for His pleasure. He created us to have fellowship with Him. So why is it we often leave Him out of the equation? It's like trying to make an omelet and leaving out the eggs.

Maybe you've given up on God. Rest assured, He has not given up on you. Why not give Him another chance? Talk to Him, tell Him how you feel. He already knows. 1 Peter 5:6-7 says, "Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

Humbling is hard. But a life without anxiety is easy. Give God a chance, perhaps a second chance, and let Him lift you up, out of the muck and the mire, and carry you along the path He's chosen just for you.

Happy Tuesday, everyone.


  1. Mindy,

    Thanks for those encouraging words!

  2. Thanks, Mindy, I needed to hear that today. Work kicked my tail, and I was just sitting here wondering how I was going to get 2 1/2 chapters written before Saturday as tired as I was. Very timely words!

  3. Excellent post! I love the analogy of an omlette without eggs. :)
