Wow…it has been an unbelievable month…and a blur…and I have noticed something in regards to myself. My attitude has not been the best, and at times downright awful. I have noticed during this busy time I have let my primary focus turn to everything that I am doing. My secondary focus has been on my walk with God. This is meant to check for myself (before I wreck myself;). Nothing has changed with my health, in fact it is on an upward trajectory. So why did I find myself doubting, questioning and becoming frustrated with things that I haven’t had trouble with for a while?
I have been trying to take everything upon myself. I have been trying to fix things. I have been trying to make things happen. Most importantly, I have been neglecting time in His word and in prayer. This wasn’t an intentional move away. I became busy. Busy with work, busy with family, and busy trying to prepare for this Crossfit competition that I had no thoughts of qualifying for this year. I took my eyes off of the one thing that makes those things become whole and actually make sense. This is a reminder to myself that I am doing an injustice to all of those things if God is not at the center.
Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
I am nothing without strength through my Lord Jesus Christ. I am inefficient at work, useless to my family, and powerless in any physical endeavors if I deviate from the reason that I am here.
This is something that we all must remember, but something that I wanted to publicly call myself out about tonight.
I love all of you!
