Overcoming Fear about Chores

My 9 year old son and I noticed this morning that today is “March Forth!”  Quite fitting encouragement for me since I’m waffling over a technology chore.  Do you have chores on your to do list that scare you?  You put it off; it seems huge; you don’t understand it.  Well, I sure do.  My big deal is… 

…switching my website from wordpress.com to wordpress.org.

I know, I know.  It seems like small potatoes.  No big deal.  And it is small.  But I’m freaked and maybe stuck.  My to do list can be like that at times.  

Sometimes the big scary thing is having a talk with my teen, switching the “J” trap on my bathroom sink, trying to help the kids give away toys or the worst is organizing all our papers and mail.  

You’re probably wondering how in the world I get the courage to do such things, eh?  Well, let me tell you!  🙂  Today I’m listening to Christian 90’s Country Rock music.  That will do it for you, right?  Check out this doozy with extra cheese from Steven Curtis Chapman.

But seriously, isn’t the strength to do just about anything icky or scary always coming from the realization that Jesus has gone ahead of us?  That he has even gone through death and come out the other side even better.  That’s the thing that makes it palatable for me – I believe that Christ is in the chore.  I go to that scary place to meet Jesus.  I believe he is with me and that he knows the way.  (yes, I’m pumping myself up for the day).  Cue the music.

What chore/ hurdle are you facing today?  Something with the kids?  A mindset thing?  A conversation?  Cleaning? 😦  Drop me a line, I’d love to know.  

Now I’m off to face technology with Christ….
