Something about Fridays Jesus Calling Devotional really got to me. Maybe it was the fact she used the word scurry so well. 🙂
I think she has just painted a perfect picture of American society. We think we are so “busy” but what are we busy doing? I have a friend who always says how crazy life has been and that’s she’s been so “busy lately” & I just smile. Her busyness is her own making, she could easily stop doing all the things keeping her so busy, but instead she wants to stay busy and complain.
I am making a concentrated effort to not be busy just to be busy. B is only signed up for 1 fall activity & 1 short sports camp. #BabyLogan is signed up for 4 weeks of swimming lessons. I am in 1 bible study and Man has one personal activity. Man & I still workout but we have changed our schedules to better fit our lives.
I don’t want to spend my weekends rushing around taking B to “tournaments ” for a sport he doesn’t even know if he likes. I don’t want to stress over whether #BabyLogan is getting enough “enrichment”…..he’s not even 2! I don’t want to be so engrossed on working out that I don’t have the time to play w/my kids which is 1/2 the reason I started working out! Even being to involved with ministry can become a bad thing if it becomes just another thing to do! I recently did Priscilla Shirers bible study Breath:making room for the sabbath and it totally helped me change the way I lead my life.
Remember you don’t have to be busy jusy because every else’s life is “so crazy” right now. You have no one but #God standards to live up to. So sit back enjoy ur time with the Lord and let him control your day. It’s much more calm that way.
