Regardless, that's the way it is. I found this quote last night by Charles Hummel, "We live in constant tension between the urgent and the important. The problem is that the important task rarely must be done today or even this week. Extra hours of prayer or Bible study can wait. But the urgent tasks call for instant action-endless pressure every hour and day." Ahh, so true.
Anyways, yesterday I was wondering why I was feeling so overwhelmed by every little thing. Yes, life is busy and hectic and a little stressful right now, but not so much so that I should be feeling the way I am now. Not that I should be constantly ready to snap at everybody. Then it hit me, when is the last time I asked God to help me? The last time I spent time in scriptures, or remembered that life is not about what we do, but who we are? I hate to admit that it's been a while. I've been doing a lot of doing, but not a lot of being. I decided to start immediatley back up, and found a book that I bought months ago meaning to read.
Awesome book (It starts off with the story in Luke 10:38-42, not suprisingly). I've read the author's other "Mary" book and loved it. Anyways, a few verses from my reading last night that stuck with me:
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
