“…But one thing is needed and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken from her.”
Luke 10:42

The holiday’s are here and along with them comes the hustle and bustle we add to our days.

Many times we forget to pause and take in what the Lord has for us all in the name of our task lists.

Life can be filled with busyness and uncertainty which can lead us into a place of stress and being nervous. And in some cases even lead us into illness.

As women we tend to want to know all the plans, the details and have a plan B for the just in case. Instead of allowing God to take the lead we are jumping out front and in many case tripping over our own feet!

“The Lord is my Shepherd. I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in
green pastures. He leads me beside quiet waters. He refreshed my soul.”
Psalm 23:1-3

God calls us to leave the details up to Him and rest in Him.

Do you feel guilty if you rest?

Are you a stubborn sheep not willing to rest in Him?

The Lord knows us and desires that we lay down in His green pastures and refresh our souls by the quiet waters, He wants us to know peace that only comes through Him and Him alone.

Rest is really not an option in our walk as a Woman of God, it is a Spiritual discipline we need to help us create a habit in our life. We need to understand that busyness is NOT productive! Busyness will actually break us down. There is no need to fill every waking moment with something to do, maybe it is time to evaluate your day and see if you are filling it with busyness or productivity.

What are your daily priorities?

Are you exhausted at the end of each day because you have been trying to do it on your own? You are just too busy to seek God to guide you through your day. Time for a change in mindset! 

If you make God, your time with the Lord a priority you will find that the day is productive, you can manage the day and you are not exhausted at the end of each day.

It is time to press in on God and THRIVE daily!

What is the Lord showing you today that needs to shift?

    This is such a great reminder at this time of year Robin! Making things to live up to my expectations can exhaust me. It’s funny when I share what I want to get done I hear from my family that it is not important to them so I learned checking in is a good way to cut back my to do list.

      I agree Rayna, we tend to exhaust ourselves instead of resting in the Lord.
