// I'm learning so much from the book, It's All Under Control, by Jennifer Dukes Lee. I have known for a long time that I need to give Jesus more control of my life, but this book has really hit almost "too close to home".
In Chapter 12, entitled "Whole", Jennifer talks about not being a fragmented person. I don't need to see myself as a spiritual person, versus a person at work, or at home, but 1 whole person! Oneself. She quotes Ann Voskamp as saying that we need to have a "one-piece life". Ann likened it to a seamless, one-piece garment, which "was a rare possession for a Jew in Biblical times."
As I sat with that a few moments, I wrote this in my journal: "Lord, that is true today, I need to have a seamless life that doesn't feel rushed, or harried or hassled. Seamless - all of life can and should be an offering to You because You made me to be more than I am. Because of You, I am MORE than enough, MORE than a conqueror, and MORE than I know (which a friend and my husband repeat to me.)
Jesus, You are the same - seamless, through and through. You are seamless throughout the ages. My life can be a "smoothly continuous" garment, flowing in and out of situations and becoming MORE like You each and everyday." //STOP

Kate posts a single word each week and each blogger sets a timer for 5 minutes to write and then posts, with very little editing. (Some weeks I have more trouble with that part than others) Check out the other writers this week!
