I've talked about it on the blog before, but it's worth mentioning again, without a doubt, the most frequent comment people make to me is about how busy I am. Sure I'm a wife, a mother, an artist and a business owner, but God has called me to each of these roles, so if I’m busy, I’m busy being obedient to Him.
I've found that when we're serving out the calling that God has put on our lives, it doesn't feel BUSY. Instead, walking out our callings should leave us feeling fulfilled and like we're a part of the Lord's masterful plan.
In the midst of the packed holiday schedule, I would encourage us instead, to stop glorifying how 'busy' we are, and instead focus on doing BUSY:
Each of us has been given a gift. And each of us has a role to play in the world God has created for us. If you're feeling too busy, I challenge you to take a pause and evaluate what it is that grants you fulfillment instead of increased craze. Serve Him with what He has given you and find the peace and joy of the Season!
