This week, we’ve been less than productive. Between cleaning up from Buttercup’s birthday party last weekend, to battling a migraine most of the week, very little was accomplished.
What I learned after days in bed with this headache?
- This month’s verse is very important. All I could think while lying in bed as my head pounded was, “Work for the Lord,” and make the most of every moment. Instead of being depressed about everything I couldn’t get up and do, I focused on doing what I needed to do at that moment–that was resting and recovering. Before, I would worry about what I should be doing instead of resting. This time, I really took this verse to heart. At those moments when my head throbbed, I focused on God and rested. I knew everything else would get done.
- Life doesn’t go as planned. God has His plans and my plans don’t always match His. I must be willing to rearrange my life and plans for His. Everything will be accomplished that needs to be accomplished.
- Don’t be afraid to make plans. While making the yearly schedule for this blog, I fretted over something like this happening. I hated to make plans because I knew they would shatter around my feet like a broken mirror. True to my fear, this happened just a few weeks into this new year. I had an epiphany this last week, just because my plans go awry, doesn’t mean anything. Plans can always be rearranged. Life won’t end (neither will this blog) if my plans don’t go as scheduled, nor should I be stressed out when things don’t work out. Life continues.
Live in the moment. Don’t fret what’s not being done. Work for the Lord.
