My goals are sometimes in conflict. I am writing again - every day :o) - which takes more time, and thus makes me "busier" than before. Keeping the Blog is really fun and I am enjoying it emmensely. (Thank you, Cheryl!!) I am even starting a second blog - to display some of my writings (past and hopefully, more in the future). This again adds more to my schedule - in direct conflict with reducing my "busyness."
Ever feel like you are being pulled in 2 directions at once or that you've come up against an unmovable obstacle? Sometimes pure will-power is not enough. Perseverence and determination are good, but do we really "have the victory"? We can wear ourselves out trying to "overcome" in our own strength. Jesus said His yoke is easy and His burden is light. If we are wearing ourselves out, we need to stop and check to see if we are fighting the right battle.
