I am constantly asked how in the world I do all that I do. My best answer is….I know what needs to be done and what is not all that important.
While my 31 days to organization was such a big hit and I LOVED writing it, I am still not done. It is not because I can’t do it all, it is because I chose my health and my kids over the last week of that project. I still have a goal to finish it. I had to step back from one thing for a short time in order to keep my house going strong.
I also give all I have to everything that I do. Does this mean that everything turns out perfect? No way!! I have lots of faults. I have lots of shortcomings. The glory of it all is that Jesus makes up those. I do have a strong faith in Jesus and what He did for me. Do I know all the Hebrew meanings and Jewish customs…no. Do I know all of the answers for all the religious stuff out there….no. What I do know is the profound effect that loving Jesus has had on my life. That encourages me to do all things for Him. He knows my heart and He knows my shortcomings better than I do, but He still calls me to lots of things. I have eternity to rest and travel and climb and float the rivers of heaven.
I do a lot. Not every one can do that. Not every one can go constantly like I do. I love it. I wish I could do more for more people. I have to put life in perspective though and only do what I should do for this season right now.
If you are struggling, I encourage you to do a life inventory. I am doing one currently. Here are the easy steps to getting your life back:
Look at everything you do.
Write it ALL down. Housework? Kids activities? School? Work? Girl’s Night Out? ALL OF IT.
Make two columns for each thing. Pay attention over a short amount of time how these things make you feel. What you get out of it. What you give back through it.
Then look over it. Pray over it. Meditate on the words. Is there something you can let go of? Believe me, if it is not bringing you peace or joy, you are not doing it or anyone else any favors. Let it go. Is it your job??? Can’t let go of it?? Do the same thing at work. Write everything about your work down. Think about each thing and person at work. Someone bringing you down? Can you avoid them at work? Can you transfer or move your desk? Talk to your boss. Look for ways to make the job you have the job you want.
I am always around to help. I love the saying, “do what you love, love what you do”.
Live it friends~
