Have you ever felt overwhelmed or under pressure because of things you needed to complete? You can be so consumed by your task list that life literally passes you by. Worst, you can have so much on your mind that you lose sleep.
By nature, we’re all a little ambitious; if we’re presented with a challenge, we try to conquer it. But, who said you have to conquer all of your challenges in a day? Reading the creation story again made me reconsider how quickly I need to get things done. Think about it. God could have created the entire world in a day, yet, He took six days to do it. If God, the pinnacle of wisdom, spread His tasks out over several days, then why shouldn’t we?
Sometimes, it’s OK to take things one day at a time. When you slow down a little, you can complete things more thoroughly. And, at the end of each day, you can look back on what you did and appreciate your progress.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, you may need to follow God’s lead. Enjoy life one day at a time. Break large tasks down into small projects. And, as you complete the small projects, take a little time and appreciate your progress.
Thought to Consider:
Do you need to slow down?
