This is part of a series called “Throwback” – where I revive journal entries and blog posts written/posted on this very day, years ago.
Written on June 12th, 2014 (three years ago), I was caught in the middle of a tornado of my own making – doing too much work and being buried alive in them. Re-reading this journal made me realize how history can easily repeat itself so easily without you even knowing or being able to fix them.
But God is a God of grace and second chances; I can overcome this with His help; and this message will help me be fed up with busyness even more, in hopes of real change towards doing less of my own, misguided and/or selfish pursuits so that I can do more for the Kingdom.
“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please Him who hath chosen him to be a soldier” – 2 Timothy 2:4 KJV
I seriously need to cut down. Here is now I am not fighting for The Lord when I am too busy:
* I don’t have the patience needed to love people – my family, Christine, the kiddies, my friends…people who need me
* I don’t honor my body with adequate sleep, exercise and nutrition
* I don’t give my purpose enough attention & focus – whether it be The Halal Guys project, Fransmart, various other projects, and their subsequent tithing abilities
