I realize with the demands of life, we tend to become consumed with the state of 'keeping up.' We often feel that time isn't on our side. We are so busy running that we aren't going anywhere... nowhere productive that is. Ambition is excellent and I believe everyone should strive for their best in this life, however I feel that keeping a spiritual grounding is most important. Many times we are so busy with our projects and plans, organizers, time management apps and checking to-dos from lists that we fail to reflect and truly seek God for the plan; the direction.
When we are so busy that we fail to care for ourselves spiritually, how can we be blessed truly and immeasurably? How can our presence truly bless our families? our careers? our communities? This sounds more like a formula for misery and disaster.
What does it profit a woman who gains everything she has worked hard for, but loses her own soul? ...her spirit? ...her inner peace? (Mark 8:36).
What do you do to regroup spiritually? This week let us seek spiritual connection and direction even more from God. There we will find the fruit of the spirit to take us throughout the week and our lifetime...
By this, we will surely be on our way to our peaceful and productive place.
