Not one more thing! Do you ever hear yourself saying that? Not one more meeting. Not one more cake to bake. Not one more errand to run. Not another person requiring anything from me. Not one more thing added to my calendar. Nothing....zero.....can't add one more thing right now to my over-booked life.
Staying too busy can lead us into stress and unrest. Are you hearing me as I preach to myself? I love to be busy.
I plan to live my 100 years ( I have prayed for 100 years.) on this earth pouring out every ounce of by feeble attempts for my Jesus. Yet~ when I find myself too busy to sit at the feet of Jesus~ I am just too busy. Stress is a warning sign for us to go back to the basics and line up this thing called "LIFE" to fit into God's plan and purpose.
We need to remember to say "yes" to the best and "no" to the rest! I was challenged in my Bible study to pick two jobs in the church and do them really well. That is just good advice from Mrs. Sherry~ if you are reading!
When we find ourselves in distress and trouble it is time to remember that the commands or will of our Father will give us peace and delight. How about you? On this beautiful Monday morning~ are you full of delight? Like Mrs. Sherry says, "Just do today what God's assignment is for you to do today." That seems simple enough.
