My life lately has been very busy mixed with a little chaos, emotions, craziness, and fun. Although some of the days I can barely make it through desperate to complete one project my heart is still and I am at peace.
I have not always been able to say that. Most of time if I am honest here I am a complete mess and I still am. I am just able to handles things differently and focus on what is truly important and that will get me through the day. If you asked me what that that truly important thing is in my life, my answer would be Jesus.
For life is truly joyful when God is first. God is my perfect security. I have lots of to do lists so I don’t forget deadlines, appointments, etc. The reality is these lists never end. Something will always be added to list and so on. I will rely on Jesus to sort my list. What is important to him? What is glorifying him?
So as I focus on Jesus first he always turns my directions to the little things. My children’s giggles that are endless. The conversations my husband and I can have in our marriage for God’s purpose. The friendships that he has surrounded me with. The sun shining so bright that it’s just amazing. The music that moves my soul. The smile on a stranger’s face that is so heartfelt and contagious.
All the little things that are far more in important and when I focus on him and the little things my list will seem much easier.
