And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. ~Galatians 6:9
We are entering the holiday season and for many people it can be a time of great stress. The “to do” lists are longer than there are hours in a day to complete. If you find this to be true for you, ask yourself, “Is there anything on my list that is unnecessary?” Think about whether it’s something you really want to do or something that just adds stress to your life. If it’s not something God has called us to, eliminate it. You aren’t required to do everything. That’s the world saying you have to do it all. Don’t conform to the world.
Let go of the excess busyness in your life and let God show you the gift of life he has given you. Enjoy the holidays!
