Busy, busy, busy!

Are you missing out on the joys of life because you are too busy? Are you over-committed? God never called you to be busy – He called you to be fruitful. Don’t get activity mixed up with productivity. Just because you are on the go, and always doing things “even godly things” doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re fulfilling God’s best plan for your life.

Let me encourage you to prayerfully take inventory of the different activities in your life. Ask the Lord to show you which areas need to be pruned, and which areas need more focus. Ask Him to show which relationships to move away from, and which relationships to cultivate in your life. Stop allowing the unfruitful areas of your life to consume all of your time, focus, and energy. As you make adjustments to bring balance to your schedule, invest in the activities and relationships that bring you joy and peace. As you do, you will experience God’s abundant blessing in every area of life!

“…then God blessed them, and said to them, ‘be fruitful and
multiply; fill the earth and subdue it…'”–Genesis 1:28
