As a kid, I was always fascinated by jugglers. How in the world could they balance and keep so much in the air moving at once was beyond me. I’ve tried so many times to learn to juggle, but have never got the hang of it (maybe because I am clumsy and uncoordinated).
Why is it then, that I continue to try and juggle so much in life that really does matter? I am notorious for biting off more than I can chew; I am at a stage in life where I am constantly struggling to juggle my schedule, and to be honest, I feel like I’m dropping the ball more than I am keeping it in the air.
My husband recently prayed that I would stop juggling and lay everything at the feet of Jesus. As I’ve pondered his remark, I realize that in order for me to do that, I have to be willing to let go. Why is it that I continue to cling tightly to responsibilities and commitments, when I know that I can’t keep going at my current pace. What is it in me that wants to be Superwoman all the time? Why can’t I relax and just be me? Can anybody else relate?
I know I haven’t been faithful to blog recently, and that is because it is one of those juggling balls that I had to lay down for a while. I am currently doing a lot of soul searching in an attempt to prioritize and focus on God’s calling for my life. Bear with me as my blog posts may be sporadic for a few weeks. Pray for me as I seek to not just do good things, but to sort out what are the tasks God has called me to do.
