It’s how I feel…
It’s how many of us feel…
There is no time…
No time to accomplish our work.
No time to complete the chores around the house,
No time to read the books we want to read.
No time to spend with friends
And never mind the volunteer work
We want to do.
It’s all pretty crazy.
If I don’t have enough time,
The only one to blame is me.
I know there are enough hours in the day
To accomplish all I’m supposed to do,
All I was created to do.
I’m notorious for taking on too much.
I must step back and see what can go.
If I’m doing what I should, my heart soars.
If not, I get bogged down,
Without time to think.
May I focus on the tasks at hand
And leave the rest for another time.
In that way,
I will fly.
…one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13-14, NIV).
