Year of Discipline: Slowing Down
I had another post planned for this week. But I talked to a friend about how I wanted to do something, but I didn’t have the room on my plate to do it. I walked away from that conversation, not thinking of it again. And as I started to do some tasks and allowed some YouTube videos to play in the background, God allowed some things to drop in my Spirit.
There are times when I have so much going on that I feel like I am drowning. And then there are times when I feel like I have it all together. But as I walked into this week, I realized that I was setting some goals and expectations for myself, and I was rushing to get them all done. And there would be days where that paralyzed me to do nothing. I needed something to change.
Next week I will talk more about organizing my time and how I will be structuring my day to help me be more disciplined. But today, I wanted to focus on slowing down and taking my cares to God. Before I could tackle anything that I need to do, I want to make sure that God is with me through all of it. So that is what I am doing. I am taking some time to write my goals to God and what I expect from those goals. But more importantly, I am allowing room for God to change my path if needed and for His Will to be done. I can’t wait to see what God does this year.
