reminded of His anointing

"Now it is God who makes both 
us and you stand firm in Christ. 
He anointed us, 
set His seal of ownership on us, 
and put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come."  
2 Corinthians 1:21-22

Responsibility lies on my shoulders to make wise decisions for an entire group of people.  Feeling overwhelmed at times, it is a daily battle against fear and worry.  Once a few more i's are dotted, it will get easier for a time, but for now I go on keeping fear at bay only by the grace of God.

God's got this.  
It's going to work out for His glory.  
He will show Himself mighty.
One step at a time, He will lead me along His path, not only for me, but also for those I am to lead. 
He is that awesome!

They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
