So many fish to fry in a fire full of irons on a plate that’s too full has me feeling overwhelmed.
Was it God’s plan that I accomplish everything? Did He want me to feel guilty for not responding to every email, tweet, LinkedIn request, Facebook post, or phone call?
Of course not, the unnecessary pressure I put on myself was stealing my joy.
2 Corinthians 9:7 tells us: “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
I have decided to complete every task I can manage in a day, and do it with joy! Then, let go of the things I can’t, and stop feeling guilty about it.
I don’t think God’s upstairs keeping score. If we seek him, He’ll validate our decisions.
