Busyness is NOT an excuse!

"I've been so busy..."

I've been saying those words a lot lately.  And to be honest, I am really trying to go from a "catching up" mode to an "on top of things" mode.  Is that too much to ask?  For a lof ot us women who juggle family, work, ministries, and friends, it is exhausting to attempt giving 100% to everyone around us.  So, why do we even try?  I was reminded today that I am not here to please "mere men", I'm here to please, praise, and honor my Father in Heaven. 

"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."  Colossians 3:17

It puts everything in a different perspective...  knowing that even when I'm trying to "catch up" on things, my attitude should be to do it in the name of the Lord Jesus.  He should be my only audience, and it is through Him and for Him that all my efforts exist. 

The good news is... in the midst of my busyness, I managed to win a contest over on Ashlei's blog Coupon Deals and Steals.  I am loving this new hobby!!  Trying to save by cutting up a bunch of coupons and searching for those really good deals!!!  So cool!  ANYWAY, so WHAT DID I WIN???

  1. Look forward to seeing the new look for your blog. I am constatnly struggling with "busyness". Thanks for the encouraging message.

  2. It's very pretty! I like it a LOT!

  3. I feel the same way...it's so hard to do everything and please everyone sometimes...and it's very exhausting. I have to remind myself that to please Him and do His will is what it's all for...His grace is sufficient...His burden light. Without Him, I couldn't do 1/2 of what I do. =)
