Lately I’ve been feeling pressed for time, and keenly feeling my limitations in this area.
I’m a dreamer and schemer, and this fall I’ve had to say “no” to so many things I would dearly love to do, and the deciding factor–for each and every decision–has been my time.
But last week, someone shared this Brian Andreas quote with me, not knowing that I’d been lamenting my time crunch to my husband just the night before:
“Everything changed the day she figured out there was exactly enough time for the important things in her life.”
These were the right words at the right time, and I’m choosing to believe they’re true, even if I don’t exactly feel it (yet).
I’ll be continually asking myself this week what matters, and what doesn’t. It sounds so simple, but these moment-by-moment decisions are weighty. There’s tension there, and it’s uncomfortable, but there’s grace in the midst of asking these questions.
As you enter this week, my wish is that you (and I) would believe that for the important things in your life, there is exactly enough time.
Do you believe it?
