Time and schedule are what I am working to surrender and trust God with at this juncture. I wear many different hats. From working and career, to volunteering, to kids and their activities, household, husband, ministry and service. The ministry service portion always gets squeezed out. Work seems to take over, I always feel like I am rushing from place to place and don’t do any of these things well. Too many choices to make, conflicting with where I really want to spend my time on this planet (as Jennie says in her study). Most working women struggle with this. I must trust God that during this busyness, HE will sustain me and strengthen me. I love the verse in 2 Cor 12: 8-10. “Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” For so many years I have been asking God to take away the busyness rather than trusting him to sustain me through it. Hopefully, I will feel a little freedom by surrendering my ANYTHING.
