I am a glass jar. What ever I am consumed with people will be able to see it.
Julia Nash wrote a great honest post on balance that stopped me in my tracks. Her post really made me pause and reflect on how I am conducting myself. Do I have balance? Am I allowing my life to be consumed by the training and the transformation? Am I allowing it to dampen my pursuit of God? Am I annoying or negatively affecting those around me?
I have 5 life strivings (goals). Every Friday a pop up on my computer is scheduled to remind me of these goals. But maybe I need to take every day at a time. Each day asking, am I doing these things? Where is my focus today?
- To know God
- To keep myself in optimum shape.
- To continue to meet life’s challenges with excitement and perseverance.
- To always give thanks, acknowledging Job 2:12
- To support, encourage and fiercely love my husband
