Continuing To Make Life Adjustments
Seems like no matter how hard I try I’m continually having to make life adjustments. What has worked in the past seasons of life simply isn’t working in this season. I’m continually running into my present limitations. I know in my my heart that I can only handle a small portion of what I used to be able to handle. It’s still very hard to accept, but it’s clearly my new reality.
Every time I come close to falling apart I try to trace my previous steps. Usually I’m able to see that I bit off way more than I could chew. For instance, if I try to do anything major on back to back days I’m usually headed towards a danger zone. I know if I don’t get the necessary hours of sleep on back to back nights I will soon be a nervous wreck. I also know that if I try to pour into others out of an empty cup that I’m playing with fire. I have to keep seeking God, praying and reading the Bible for myself.
While we often can diagnose other people’s problems we must keep evaluating our own issues. The only way to stay in God’s will is to keep making the necessary life adjustments. If we don’t a small problem can quickly become a much bigger problem. I have to keep re-evaluating my priorities, boundaries, time management, and physical limitations. Thank God for His continual grace and guidance through these matters.
