How was your weekend? I hope you got the chance to relax and enjoy some down time.
I don’t know about you, but Mondays always seem to be the busiest day of the week. I’d like to think that having 2 days off of work (Saturday & Sunday) would give me ample time to catch up and fully prepare for the week ahead. But that rarely happens.
On Mondays, there seems to be more emails in my inbox, more bills in my mailbox, more errands to run, more phone calls to return and more items on my to-do list. If I don’t intentionally set the right tone in my heart and mind, Monday’s will set the wrong pace for my entire week.
When the demands of Monday cause me to rush and hurry I can get caught up in the busyness and begin to feel anxious. Sometimes I’m not even aware of it. I’m so focused on “getting it all done” that I’m completely sidetracked from the stirring in my heart. But, here are those other times when I’ve pushed myself too much and I suddenly become aware.
Why do I feel anxious? I’m not worried about anything. What’s going on that is making me feel this way?
It doesn’t take long to realize I’ve created a pace that’s causing me to rush unnecessarily. That’s when I remind myself of God’s truth.
I’ve created this beautiful graphic for you as a reminder this week. Next time your busyness turns into anxiousness and you find yourself rushing around trying to beat time at it’s own game, I hope you’ll set your heart to these words.
I’m so grateful God holds every moment of our lives safely in His hands. He is the Creator and Sustainer of all time. Time isn’t limited to this life here on earth. It continues on in Heaven. So when you stop and think about those truths, it becomes clear. There is no reason for us to rush or feel hurried.
What is causing you to hurry and feel rushed today? I pray our time together has given you a fresh perspective that God holds every minute, so you can relax and enjoy the day.
