I remember as a little girl that there were times I wanted my mom or dad to do something for or with me. Their response occasionally was in a little while or maybe later or not right now. It was usually when they were busy but that didn't matter to me I wanted them right then.
As a child I did not realize the many things it takes to do all the parental things to keep a home and our lives going. Things such as laundry, cleaning, cooking and work. When I became a parent, I began to realize that we are pulled in so many directions but the one direction that is most important is staying on track with God. Our lives are so busy and some of the daily chores can wait.
If a child or friend wants to spend time with you, just do it and the things like housework will get done later. The time we have is so precious. It goes by so fast and we can become so overwhelmed with doing STUFF that we forget what is really important. If you were to come to my house right this very minute you would find beds with no sheets (they are in the washer or dryer), furniture that needs dusting, toilets that can always need cleaning and a few other things not in perfect order. But I have well fed children, clean dishes and stove top. a hot pot of coffee just brewed and now I am almost finished with this week's prayer focus.
Take time to spend with friends and family (I feel like we just had a visit) and stop sweating the small stuff. Life is a gift, that's why it's called the present. Pray this week for those who are overwhelmed and for the peace from God our Father to help them slow down and rest in Him.
And He will be the stability of your times, a wealth of salvation, wisdom and knowledge; The fear of the LORD is his treasure.(NASB)
I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! (NLT)
