WE CAN'T HAVE IT ALL OR CAN WE?

When I put my life into perspective, I know that I can't have it all. I will never be good at anything if I try to do it all. Just today I was thinking, well it looks like I will have to start rearranging my schedule. I refuse to become so busy that I discontinue working out. So, that means early morning workouts. This will be hard because I love getting my rest. It is also important to me that I am able to balance my natural and spiritual life. So my early morning schedule will also include morning mediation and scripture reading. I love working out and taking care of my body, writing, networking, fellow-shipping with other believers, hanging out with friends, and visiting my family. Even with no other commitments at the moment, I know that I must learn to prioritize.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
King James Version (KJV)

3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

  1. This post is right on target with what I am dealing with right now! I have searched for helpful insight on that Godly balance on my daily needs/responsibilities. I have come to the conclusion that you CANT do everything in one day and that some things get done and some things just dont. I had to realize that it doesnt mean that I have failed as a mom, wife, nurse, or child of God. It just means that for that day, I did what needed my immediate attention.
    With THAT perspective, I can better balance and not lean toward feeling overwhelmed by the millions of things that call for my attention.
    I am also coming to grips with the myth of multi-tasking. Im realizing that since I only have a few hours everyday, I have to prioritize what is most important to me to do for that day. If those task are most important, then I have to work at focusing all my attention to them so that I can do them with 100% effort!
    Its all a work in progress and I think that you have hit the nail on the head with this post:)

  2. Sob then Faith without works is DEAD,James 2:17 and PAUL says that " I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase "1 Corinthians 3:6, All we can do is our part and someone else will come along and do their part, but only God can do his part and we always have to trust God that he will do his part.
    MUCH LOVE, DAD
