"L’Eggo” my ego

Logistics and planning are still necessary aspects of my life. That’s why it makes sense to pause and wait on God as the one Ego.

Since the 1970s, a popular brand of waffles has been making “punny” advertisements with the slogan “L’Eggo my Eggo.” In plain English, that’s “Let go of my Eggo!” All puns aside, this advertising campaign actually inspired and helped me at a high-pressure time. I was deep in the weeds as head of the logistics team for a conference of two thousand people. The details of contracts, meals, accommodations, and meetings were dizzying. I didn’t know where to begin and had zero experience with project management. Furthermore, this was a volunteer gig; I still had my full-time job to do.

Despite the complexities of planning the event, I maintained time to pray each day—to go into the closet of prayer, as Christ Jesus taught (see Matthew 6:6 ), or the “quiet sanctuary of earnest longings” as Mary Baker Eddy describes this closet in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 15 ).
