With only four days left in the series, it’s time to look at some of the questions I posted at the very beginning of the series based on the definition of reset.
So I don’t know about you, but a couple of things are out of whack in my life that need to be restored to their proper place.
I’m working on restoring my health and relationships, including my relationship with God.
Not so much that my faith hasn’t been an active part of my life but for me I think I’ve been focusing too much on being “active” rather than “being” with the Lord. I’m doing so many “good” things, I volunteer at church and co-lead a ministry and do coaching, and am part of a growth group, etc. But my prayer and “quiet” time has been lacking. I feel God calling me to stop being a “Martha”, so concerned with the doing and instead inviting me to sit at His feet for a while and listen.
With regards to my health, I need to restore that to the top of my priorities not just make it an afterthought. I need to be healthy so that all other aspects of my life will flow well. This means finding the time for self-care as well as eating better and exercising in some way. This will be a challenge but I can’t afford to put it off much longer.
And with my relationships, I feel called to go intentional and smaller. I keep “meaning” to do things but I never schedule them or to call/get together with friends but I can’t quite seem to make it happen. Part of it is that I want to be friends with everyone. I mean there are SO many people I know and would like to connect with but I believe there are specific relationships God wants me to focus on this season and I want to be intentional about investing in these friends and loved ones (including my sweet husband and kids), I want them to get the best of me and not just my leftover time and energy.
This will inevitably mean letting go of some projects or putting some dreams on hold for a while as I cannot do EVERYTHING all the time and this is just not the right season for some things. But I’m confident there will be a season to explore other goals and desires, I just have to be open to accepting where I’m at right now and be authentic about living a life where (as much as possible) my schedule is in line with my values.
How about you friends?
