Do you find that the turn in seasons motivates you to think more intentionally about your purpose and goals? I’m not sure if I’m that way because I’m married to a teacher and our lives fall into quarterly rhythms or if it is a result of being a long-term thinker.
As this past summer was approaching, I found myself asking God for direction for how to use my time, not only in the weeks ahead but also the coming fall. At the heart of the matter, I wanted to make sure to find some semblance of balance, especially with a big writing deadline hitting in August and my oldest heading off to college just a few weeks later.
It’s so easy to let time slip us by and leave us with regret. Have you felt this way?
I started with my business hat on, choosing to prayerfully set some practical goals so that I could make wise decisions about where to invest my time and not allow the big-idea girl inside of me sabotage my schedule. But instead of arriving at action list, the Lord impressed upon me three guiding principles:
1) Be Generous
2) Be Kind
3) Love Well
Join me at The Better Mom to continue reading and see what the Lord revealed to me about these three principles.
I think you’ll be encouraged to apply them in your life too!
