I realized a few weeks ago that I had way too much on my plate. While all my projects, groups & involvements were “good” things I felt God calling me to pair down my commitments.
I let God wield the sword. Once things were clear in my mind, I shared my thoughts with my husband, Michael. He was fully supportive of the plan & encouraged me to move forward. Over the next couple of days I nervously notified the affected people & organizations of the change. Without fail, everyone was understanding & supportive.
I appreciate the godly attitude and well wishes that were shared with me.
This whole process reminds me of John 15:4 (NIV) “Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”
As I continue to abide in Christ this year, my prayer is that my life will reflect Him more and more with each passing day.
