I’m Going On Strike
I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough. We live in a society that puts too much undeserved pressure on people. Everybody wants things to happen overnight. There’s never enough hours in the day mentality. You’ve gotta do it all and have it all now.
Now, I’m all about seizing the moment in front of you. About making the most of everyday God allows you to breathe. I’m not a fan of running like a chicken with your head cut off. Most of us are far from healthy when we’re running through life. When we think everything on our life’s to do list must be done overnight.
I’ve decided I’m going on strike. I’m no longer running down the hill of slavery with society. I’m not gonna kill myself, my marriage, or my family in the name of busyness. I will remain diligent in seeking to leave a legacy that outlives me. I will keep waking up each day asking God to lead my every step. But, I will no longer live under the pressure man, not God has put upon me.
“You say, “I am allowed to do anything”–but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”–but not everything is beneficial.” (1 Corinthians 10:23)
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:2)
