I wrote earlier this week about the busy season I’m in right now.
And while I’m certain that this particular busy season is right where God wants me, I’m equally certain that there have been other busy seasons I’ve brought on myself. Completely apart from His desires.
Seasons in which I’ve not trusted God to provide servants for a ministry…
so I’ve done it myself.
Seasons in which I’ve not trusted Him for fulfillment in my identity…
so I’ve boosted it myself.
Seasons in which I’ve been too concerned about inflating my ego or impressing the onlookers.
In fact, I would dare to say that if you find yourself to be busy and you aren’t absolutely certain God has ordained each calling you’re claiming, each role you’re filling, and each task you’re undertaking, there’s a good chance you’ve taken on more than He wants you to.
When I read Ruthie’s post on her blog, Live, Laugh, and Love, I knew I had to share it with you. It provides the perfect counterpart to my earlier post, and will point you toward evaluating the way you’re spending your moments and your hours and your days in light of the One who loaned them to you in the first place.
You can connect with Ruthie here:
Ruthie, thank you for sharing from the wisdom of your experience, and for encouraging us to seek God’s face and His will about our schedules. Every moment is His, after all. How could we not consult Him about how we spend them? Feel free to grab this “I’ve Been Featured” button for your blog as our way of saying, “Thank you.”
