This past week, I felt so overwhelmed. I had what seemed like a million things to do and so little time. Thankfully, my husband forced me to rest. It required me to miss a few activities I had committed myself to but the time was sooooo needed.
As a disciple of Jesus Christ, we are called to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10), but sometimes it seems we get caught up with our own agendas. The problem with that is we can’t afford not do the Lord’s work. People are dying, turning away for God and living in confusion. So again, we can’t afford not do the Lord’s work. John 1:5 says, The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
I don’t think it’s too far-fetched to say most people will tell you that your idea, song, or invention is great the first time they hear about it. This seems to be especially true if you’re in a position of leadership. Many times, people don’t want to disagree for fear of backlash or don’t want to kill your vibe. Both, however, can be crippling.
I've had my share of successes, and had my share of failures. But with every success and failure, I push forward. I push forward because I have goals and aspirations to reach. I push forward because I know my story continues.
Contrary to popular belief, just because you have a birthday every year doesn’t mean you’ve grown. I mean in terms of personal growth: spiritually, emotionally, or intellectually. It takes work to grow into a place of maturity and freedom. Are you willing to grow?
This past weekend, my husband and I spent the Fourth of July camping. The campgrounds we were at had a water park with an obstacle course, zip lining, canoeing and kayaking, putt-putt, basketball courts and a late night DJ. Simply put, it was an awesome experience.
Over the last few months, I've really been trying to lock down and maintain a good weekly schedule. It was a little challenging trying to figure out what I was capable of accomplishing in a 24-hour period, especially with all the miscellaneous things that pop up throughout the day. I think I finally found a schedule that works.
As we grow in Christ, we must remember not to disqualify ourselves because of our sins. We all make mistakes, but when we ask for forgiveness, He throws our sins into the sea of forgetfulness (derived from Micah 7:19 and Hebrews 8:12).
Yesterday, I celebrated my first wedding anniversary. On June 21, 2014, I married the love of my life. To sum up the last year, I'd say it has been an adventurous year. Has it been worth it? ABSOLUTELY!
