Busy-ness (Victoria Gaines)
I really like what Victoria wrote in her post "Teach Us to Number our Days"
Has life for you become frantic and exhausting? Stop and assess. Are you overworked? Overcommitted? Overwhelmed?
This week I asked myself these questions:
- Do I take time to deepen my relationship with God on a daily basis?
- Do any of my activities hinder me from living out my calling?
- Do I spend enough time with friends and family?
- Do I take time for renewal and relaxation?
How about you? Pray and modify your schedule where needed. Ask the Lord to show you how to live the life He intends you to live. Never mind what others are doing.
“So teach us to number our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom.” ~Psalm 90:12 (ESV)
“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!”~ Psalm 90:17 (ESV)
It is so, so easy to be overwhelmed with busy-ness. There are so many things that we feel MUST be done now and it all takes TIME!! God has a timetable that doesn't always align with ours. We need to ask Him each day -"What do YOU want me to do today?"
Thank you, Victoria. These are very vital questions. Their answers will definately influence how we walk in God's peace and fulfill His calling for us. Very practical steps. God help us with our answers
