How many of you that know me know that there is NOTHING I think I CAN'T Do!
Some of my friends and family have only begun to see this attitude within the past year! So focused! Giving my every waking breath to what I'm passionate about! On a mission to be successful, not caring if I fall on the way.
Growing up I was always shooting for the stars! Setting goals, and working my butt off to achieve them, proving a bunch of people wrong along the way.
Today, I'm encouraged to not try and do too much. I'm human not Jesus! I've realized that part of my journey has been wanting to prove to God that I can do it. Instead I have to stay in my lane and give it all to him. Wow!
Ok people, to the ones I really care about... You know who you are :) I really regret not scraping my plate to have room to love the way I want to be loved. I want companionship from my friends, and love, and martinis! :) And girl trips! And movie nights with Jimmy, and daily walks with Jazz and Zigg.
I know my plate is full, and I've done an awful job of balancing.... all because of my passion and thirst for success by any means necessary. The biggest blunder has been not making time for God, and thinking just because I talk with him throughout the day that I can make up for that intimate quite time with him.
I want you all to travel the road with me and be there as I achieve goals to celebrate them. Most of all I want God to be proud of what I'm doing because it's what he wants for me and not what I want for me.
Today's devotion has really brought me to this point of reflection.
Dear Lord, Forgive me for allowing busyness to overtake my life, crowding out others and worst of all You. Help me as I purpose to place only those items on my plate that You long for me to have. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
