Hi Moms of Faith readers! I’m glad to be back after a short break last week. I have literally been working around the clock on a deadline for my publisher (I wrote a new little inspirational book of New Year’s resolutions for Christians) and a complete website overhaul in time for our new ad that is going up on the MomSense (MOPS) website for the month of April. Talk about crazy busy!
Want to know what I did to keep my sanity and my focus during all the stress?
- I committed my time and hard work to Christ.
- I asked for His clear guidance and direction.
- I asked for His blessing.
- I took Sunday off to honor the Lord and spend time with my family.
Were those easy things to do with 2 huge deadlines looming over my head? Certainly not!
Am I trying to puff myself up by saying “Look at me, look at how spiritual I am!?” A resounding “NO!”
Let me be perfectly frank and tell you how incredibly difficult it was for me to accomplish ANY of those 4 things. My initial reaction is to just go get ‘em! I run full speed ahead and do whatever is needed, in my own strength and power. But I felt a real caution here from God. These were big things for me. I knew that I needed God’s blessing and approval if these projects were going to make a difference at all in anyone else’s life.
So, I forced myself to slow down. To submit to Christ. TO TAKE A DAY OFF (did I really just say that?) in the very midst of it all! And now I’m trusting the Lord to bring it to fruition.
I hope you’ll take a second and tell me what you think of our new site: https://www.christianmomsbusinessresource.com
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. – Philippians 1:4-6 NIV
Until Next Time…
