Ever recognize a thought pattern that you wanted to change?
I admit it – I am in a rut and I want to break out.
I am more comfortable being overwhelmed than I am being at peace, especially n regards to work.
You know “those people” who always say things like, “I’ve just got a lot going on right now!” or “It would be hard to explain but I’m just really busy…” I’m more comfortable being one of those people.
There’s a certain sense of self importance that comes from statements like these.
God is offering more to me and I want to accept it!
I just don’t know quite how yet. Centering is the word that keeps coming up. There is a place of actively resting in Him that I need to experience more of while trusting that He has not given me more that I can handle for each day.
I’m a planner so that is really hard for me. Packing my schedule feels like the right thing to do and really “I am a very important person with very important things I need to be doing!”
Jesus says in Matthew 6:34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
This kind of blows my mind:
Jesus wants me to live in the moment!
He’s a big fan of peace THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING!
What if I started living this out? I prefer Jesus’ stories about planning (and there is nothing wrong with those!) but I believe in this season in my life He wants me to float more and not flail.
- What if I made feeling centered in Him the priority of my day instead being lorded by my task list?
- What if I leaned into this season and consciously made an effort to talk about not being overwhelmed?
- What would it really feel like to not be overwhelmed?
- How would focusing on active rest and following Him change my schedule?
These are questions I’ll be answering in the next few weeks as I intentionally live out this season.
How about you?
- Is God asking you to actively rest?
- Or is He asking you to plan more and follow through?
Whatever season you are in I pray you are actively leaning into relationship with Him and enjoying your life and the personal adventure He has for you!
