Procrastination!…That has been the lifeline for me when it seems like I am drowning in a sea of things I need to do, should have done, and didn’t finish. My favorite tools of procrastination are paint brushes, a fresh canvas, and my fav worship tunes blaring in the background.
I know. Procrastination is BAD!…or, at least, it can be. But, for those of us who pride ourselves on overachieving, taking some time to rest and reflect can be the fuel we need to finish well.
As busy moms, it can seem like a selfish thing to want to take a break. But, if we don’t take time out of our crazy schedules, it’s a matter of time before we crack. I don’t know what that looks like for you, but in my house it isn’t very pretty:)
God rested from his work, setting an example for us to go by. Jesus took time out to rest and pray. It’s not a sin…the world will still turn as it always has…it’s ok to take some time out and get refreshed.
Where do you need to step back and reflect today?
What’s stopping you, sweet friend?
Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7, NIV)
