Just A Step At A Time

Psychologists seem to be mostly trained under the influence of behaviorism. Originally it was called the science of the soul.

I think about that when I contemplate dreams. They say it’s just random neurons firing over night.

Perhaps they are a way of working things out. It depends on what you’re thinking about all day and as you go to sleep.

That is why political leaders, in the Bible for instance, had dreams that impacted the country. That is where their attention is all day and their concerns all night.

I have a long To Do list. Many things that need to get done before leaving for Germany in a little over a week. And Easter is in the middle.

Last night I had a typical dream from these periods of my life. I’m running toward a goal, but my feed seem stuck to the ground. Then I just put my head down and concentrated on one step at a time. Next thing I knew I had passed the finish line long ago.

Such is discipline. Focus on one thing at a time and you will accomplish much.

    Sometimes that long to do list feels like a heavy backpack it’s a weight – may the Lord give you his rest as you prepare. Grace and peace. I thought Jon’s questions this morning were useful. I am grateful for both of you. Thanks for doing this so faithfully

      Thanks, Joseph. Nothing like even just 5-10 minutes to rest in meditation with God in order to get refreshed and refocused. Yes, when I grow up, I want to be like Jon.
