Women can become overwhelmed by life. Our schedules...family...callings....jobs...tasks...personal wants....needs....the list goes on and on.....
We tend to think we must do it all!!!
Sometimes we must....but I do believe firmly God doesn't want us to juggle so many hats or roles for too long at one given time. there ARE times in our life where He needs us to juggle many things at one time BUT then He asks us to step back or even step away form one, two, or all of our tasks, jobs, hats....but to remain with only the one primary hat....one role.... And that's something that can also be a struggle.
What I have learned with all this juggling over the years is the more I live in HIS WILL..His desires for me...then it doesn't matter whether I can juggle one hat or 10 ...He gives me peace and rest through it all. He reminds me when I am juggling more than I feel humanly possible that He is carrying me through it. He will give me rest. And it wont be for much longer....it will have purpose.
When I start feeling unsettled through juggling that's when I know I am trying to impose too much of my will...thus trying to over shadow HIS WILL. This is when I stop ....step back...and evaluate what is it I am suppose to truly be doing at THIS very moment...this day! What has HE asked of me for this day....not what I haven't completed in the past, not what is still to do, not what is meant for tomorrow but TODAY...RIGHT NOW!!!
I sit with it.
I pray....I listen!
This is when I remember what being a woman is all about...
...what it truly means to be a woman!
A woman is AMAZING, REMARKABLE, NURTURING, LOVING, COMPASSIONATE, GIVING.....and THAT is all I need to remember.
Being A WOMAN DOES NOT MEAN I HAVE TO DO IT ALL! or that I have to do just one thing....it does not have room for comparing....we are all uniquely made. He has purpose for each of us in different ways...we MUST embrace HIS WILL in order to truly , fully experience the AMAZING DESTINY He has for us as AS A WOMAN!
Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY BEING A WARRIOR WOMAN!
