Yes, I didn’t post yesterday. I’m tempted to do two posts today to catch up, but the fact is, I have enough on my slate today and it’s supposed to be a day of rest.
I’ve been living mostly overwhelmed the last several months because of the season of life transitions in which I find myself. There is a lot on my plate for which I’m responsible right now, and there really isn’t much I can do to let go of any of it. Therefore, it has to be managed , and I’ve employed lists and people to help, as well as accountability, in order to move forward one step at a time, knowing that in six months or so, give or take, my life will be in a new phase and hopefully will once again be more settled.
Right now, I don’t have any margins, no space to add things in or say yes to extras or for spontaneity. Even my rest/relaxation times are scheduled in, and I hang tightly to them because I know I require them or else I’m no good to anyone or anything. So, in the midst of all this, at times I get too concentrated on the details of the moment and forget the bigger picture …. I mean THE BIG PICTURE.
Reminders to turn my gaze toward eternity and my eternal purpose have been coming at me from multiple people and books, songs and sermons, in the last week or so. So today, the thought of Heaven is bringing me joy. I’m not just meaning Heaven , per se, but rather, The Kingdom, God’s home, being with Him…
There is comfort and joy for me today, in particular because it’s the Sabbath, and the thought of just resting in the arms of my Abba Father is exactly what I need.
