Just a comment on today's devotional.
I thought it was so appropriate. I'm one of those who tends to get bogged down and say 'yes' to too many things. I'm getting better at saying 'no'. For example, I realize at the moment that I really can't take on any new clients in my editing business, so I'm just deleting all the notices I get. I'm realizing that with my current ongoing projects there is no need for me to be a member of all the job sites I'm on, so I'm cancelling those memberships and leaving just the two that provide me the most work in case there is ever a lag. Although I volunteered last fall to help with our children's ministries at church, I plan on sending my apologies and saying I really can't take on any more.
But, making time for God...On the weekends I tend not to look at the devotionals that come in, I don't read the daily prayer that I have sent to myself...that I've thought of posting here. I don't update the Scriptures here because I'm doing other things. Well, this past weekend, even though my schedule had received several changes that made my life easier, I had a nice dinner at my MILs which I cooked (for my birthday)...but just the stress of everything had me in a bad mood (stress and likely hormones). And I realized I hadn't stopped to pray, to focus only on God. The moment I did that, the stress and negativity that had surrounded me for two days, lifted away.
I've learned that in everything I need to consult God. My schedule. My waking. My sleeping. My driving. My grocery shopping. That's the only way I'll ever achieve a balance in my life and feel like I'm actually accomplishing things and getting things done.
Have a great day, ladies! Remember if you have anything you'd like to share for February or March, let me know!
