I have been thinking about everything that I do…the “busy-ness” of my life you know? Well, I have had to start cutting things out and saying NO to certain things because it hit me that if I do things that aren’t going to get me to the place God wants me to be, I am wasting my time and the time of people around me. Yes, I may enjoy some of the things but if it isn’t part of the training to prepare me for the job that God has for me, then I don’t need to be doing it.
We should be making the most of the time that we are given. Look at Ephesians 5:16-17 says: Making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. So, before I take on any new thing, I will pray about it and ask God to show me if it fits into the plan He has for me. Even if it looks like a good opportunity and will bring me financial wealth, if it doesn’t line up with God’s plan for my life, it is going to be NO. I also am looking at the things I am already involved in. Maybe my “training period” with some of these things is over and it is time to give them up so that I can go to the next level. My plans may not be the ones God has planned so I am going to listen to Him and enjoy letting go of things!
When I finished proof reading what I had written, this song by Francesca Battistelli popped into my head…yep, this is exactly what I have been feeling! I Listen to the song and LET GO too!
