Tired of the TO DO Lists?

The Great Grind: If you're anything like me, your life is filled to overflowing with the necessities and then some!  I'm sure you have a life filled with the daily grind of shopping, cooking, cleaning, working, going to the Doctor, going to the bank, running to the pharmacy, taking care of the sick pet, thinking of meals for the upcoming week, taking care of the children, and if you home school your children - lesson planning, grading, teaching, gathering material and then there's paying the bills, cutting coupons to save money, and oh yes, the beloved laundry!  And the defining moment when you realize you do not have any clean underwear for the next morning...ugh.

What Does Your "Busyometer" Read?

"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.Acts 2:42 (KJV)Life can get very busy and the speed at which we function can quickly accelerate to one where we feel we have completely lost control.  We need to slam on the brakes!  How do we stop the proverbial hamster wheel and come up for air?

Recognize the Posted Speed Limit. We must recognize the speed to which we have been called.  And yes, there are times in our lives when the speed seems incredibly fast and we cannot slow down; the truth is, some seasons in life are like that.  However, there are other times in our lives when we must eliminate those activities that were not put upon us by God, but rather our own doing for myriad reasons.

Adjust Your Speed. Once we realize who we are and what God is calling us to do, we are then required to adjust our speed.  Look at what the multitudes did upon hearing Peter speak: 1) they gave their lives to Christ…

Finding God: A Helpful Response

The Pressing Question:Where is God in all of this?  Why did God not act the way we expected He would? Have you ever wondered where God was and why He chose to act or rather not to act in the way you expected?  

The Honest Dialogue:   Maybe you, like Job, have had similar conversations with the Lord.  Here is what Job had to say, "I cry out to you,God, but you do not answer; I stand up, but you merely look at me.  You turn on me ruthlessly;with the might of your hand you attack me.  You snatch me up and drive me before the wind;you toss me about in the storm.  I know you will bring me down to death,to the place appointed for all the living."  Job 30:20-23  Sometimes we may feel as if God is choosing to ignore our cries for help and for His intervention in horrible circumstances.  In fact, we may even feel that God is the cause of our trials.  God did allow Job to experience great hardship -- physical, emotional, and financial.  However, we must remember that although He allows…
