let’s face it. sometimes there aren’t enough hours in the day. okay, as a mom, wife, business partner & business owner, there’s NEVER enough hours in the day. missed deadlines, missed playgroups, late meals. always in a hurry to check the next item off the to-do list, right? honestly, i wake up feeling the pressure.
the first verse i ever memorized is the first one i forget in times like these. i don’t know why. maybe you all can remind me on occasion:
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
so what are we racing toward? who’s to-do list are we working off of? i’m trying to keep in mind the ‘big picture’. God didn’t put me here in this place to rush from task to task – or maybe He did. but that wasn’t meant to be my priority. my focus must remain on Him – and the reward offered to me in heaven once my work here is finished. and my work – the only work that matters – is spreading His word and showing His love. so at the top of today’s to-do list?
tell someone who needs to know that God loves them.
