Ah! It’s been forever and a day since I’ve written, gosh the time just flies by and before you know it three months have passed. Life has been so busy. Having two jobs while applying for jobs out-of-state can take up a lot of time.
Ya know, I feel as if I’m always rushing: I need to get this project done, do the dishes, redesign my resume, help with dinner, do the laundry, reply to this text message, research companies in Atlanta, fill out an application, send an email, reconnect with this person…. the list continues.
I recently received a wakeup call.
Last Sunday, as I was sitting in church I began to feel frustrated because mass lasted so long. I thought to myself “Gosh I have so much to do today, I do not have time for this.” The items on my ‘to do list’ flooded my mind, I was struggling with praying and worrying. As I tried to focus on the Lord the anxiousness of the upcoming week overlapped my desire for prayer.
I was aggravated/worried/anxious when I should have been at peace.
Looking back on that situation it could not be clearer that the enemy was at work and I let him win. The truth is, every day, the enemy tries to distract you from your true purpose. Don’t let him win. If you are like me and sometimes let the busyness of daily life get in your way of finding peace just know that you are not alone.
Life is busy, especially as you grow older. Take the time to enjoy the season of life that you are experiencing. Enjoy the people who surround you and the opportunities you are given.
Sometimes finding time for prayer and reflection is more difficult than others, but just remember that God is always waiting for you with open arms. He wants so badly for you to turn to Him and give Him all of your worries because He can handle it. Don’t give up on God because He will never give up on you.
Be Sassy. Be Sweet. Be You.
Classy, sassy, but oh so sweet!
