Life can be an adventure and when that happens, we get caught up in it! We run, run, and run, never slowing down to recognize that we got to much going on. We feel like the more we do, the more we are accomplishing. Better yet the more we do for others, the more we want to please others by keeping them satisfied. The truth of the matter is, the more you do, the more you are going to try to do and nothing you want to do is being accomplished. Don’t get me wrong, doing is not the problem. It’s how much of what you are doing is necessary and is it bringing God the glory?
Doing to much can take you off course and take you away from your purpose in life.
Let’s keep it simple by doing some simple addition and subtraction. Let’s add the things we need to accomplish and subtract the things that are of less importance.
Life can be more fulfilling when we commit ourselves to what’s important. Not the twenty things we might have going on that are not.. Simplify your life and focus on your goals.
Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith Hebrews 12:1-2
Look at your present life and determine what’s important.
Is your every act necessary ?
Is your every act pleasing to God?
Are you trying to rack up points in heaven by doing?
Is too much getting in the way?
Are you keeping it simple and relying on God?
Make a list of the necessities and a list of your desires.
Which one of these is keeping you from your goals?
