Lately, I’ve been in a scattered season. Like the papers and stuff strewn about my desk, so are my thoughts. There’s so much to do. So little time. And I don’t want to waste a minute.
It’s hard sometimes to find a beginning, let alone an end. Where do I start?
Part of me wants to give in. Let the messes pile up. Part of me wants to bustle about. Get this place shipshape, no matter what. I vacillate from order to chaos and back again.
Yet, today won’t come again, will it? And we both know that we can’t get everything done on the to-do list. And so the answer is what?
Enjoy the season you’re in. Enjoy the new beginnings that God gives us every day. Take a deep breath and give thanks.
Thanks for a desk to make messy. Thanks for children to play with. Thanks for a monster movie to watch with my family. Thanks for phones to talk on. Thanks for a husband to talk with.
Thanks for a God who loves me.
