Last night, at our small group we began discussing this diagram. 90% of the group stated they were in the cozy quadrant. A few in the stressful quadrant. Even less in the bored quadrant. And no one in the empowered quadrant.
I, myself, fell in with the few who said stressful. As I said last time, my life is lacking balance. As much as I thrive off of balance, I just can’t seem to get it yet. I find myself feeling like there is so much on my plate, yet I’m unable to control/remove any of it. Everything from being a wife, a mother, a full-time employee, and on and on.
I feel/hope/pray this stressful period is about ready to come to a head and then I’ll be able to move into the next season. All it is going to take is one step. One move. One transition. One that I see on the horizon. One that I am trying oh do hard to be patient to arrive.
Until then, I feel that prioritization is to be the tool I need to use. First needs to come my time with God. It doesn’t matter so much what it looks like, as long as it happens…daily. Next is my family, I need to remember to put them rich below God, or else time with them becomes shallow or unfulfilling. After that work, while I need to give my all to the place God has me, I also need to remember that God is who I am working for, not this around me.
I truly believe that if I can get those three things into perspective, then I will be able to get the rest of life into perspective as well. As for this blog, I’m not gonna stress about posting. When I have the urge to write I will write.
So that’s where I am right now.
