As I write this I am…tired, overwhelmed, and…so very fortunate to be feeling like this.
As I write this I am…in a very busy season of life.
As I write this I am…wondering when this season will be over and when this season will slow down.
Let’s get one thing clear: I love serving my family, my friends, and my life.
I am a servant by nature and I love serving others.
But I also tend to be my own worst enemy and my own personal critic.
So often I get bogged down with being everything to everyone. I tell myself I can do it all. I tell myself I must do it all.
One breath I am fighting to do it all.
And by the next breath I am telling myself that it’s just not possible to do it all.
And then the next breath I am reassuring myself that maybe…just maybe…it’s okay that I can’t do it all.
The only solution I’ve found for this is simple.
Asking for God’s grace.
It’s okay that I can’t do it all. It’s okay that it’s not possible.
It’s okay. It’s going to be okay.
Whenever I feel myself getting overwhelmed, frustrated, or falling short, I simply turn to God. I take deep breaths and asking God for guidance, patience, and grace.
Because with God’s grace, I can try my best.
With God’s grace, I can give it my all.
And with God’s grace, I am forgiven when I fall short.
When is the last time you asked for God’s guidance, patience, strength, and/or grace?
If you are, like me, finding yourself in a very busy season of life…give yourself some grace and ask God for all of these things. We can’t do it all alone…because that is never God’s purpose for your life anyway.
