Have you ever wanted your life to look differently than it currently does?
I'm a lot like my friend Kayse, always wanting to get to the next season of life. I live in a state of wanting more and the most out of my life. I dream of making things happen in ministry and I wonder if our family is complete and I really, really want to finish decorating our house. While all of these wants are not necessarily bad things, they tend to cause me to be discontent. And when I get discontent, I forget about all the good that is going on in my life right now and I don't enjoy my life the way I always hoped I would.
Do you ever feel this way too?
If so, I'd like to recommend you taking Kayse's Enjoy Your Life e-course. In just ten days, you will walk through simple exercises that will help you simplify and enjoy your life.
I got a chance to go through the course this past month and it really made me aware of how mixed-up some of my priorities are. On Day 5 Kayse says, "As women, we have this nasty habit of trying to take care of everyone and everything. Some things really are our responsibilities. We've got babies to raise and husbands to love and jobs to do.There's a reason God gave us the ability to nurture!
But we also have this tendency to take on more than we should. We call it responsibility, but really it's often a need for control, or a need to please people. We value our productivity over Christ's presence, and we get our priorities all turned around."
Y'all, that message hit me across my forehead and if I'm being totally honest, I'm still processing what I need to do to change. In the spirit of work, I realized that I've got too much on my plate for this season of life. Kayse has helped me prioritize the things that I have to do, like eat healthy, play with the kids, and read my Bible, and not getting so wound up over the things I think I should do like blogging a certain amount of days, decorating, volunteering, and cooking homemade. She also provides perspective in carving out time to do the things I love to do each day - reading, photography, family activities. My list of lists has helped me get back to what matters most to me: God, my family, and being okay with where I'm at in life right now.
Scripture tells us that Jesus came to this earth to give us life to the full.
As I'm processing what this means, I'm realizing that living life to the full doesn't mean I have to have a full plate of responsibility. I need to simplify, cut, and change. This e-course is helping me move in a healthier direction and I'm so very grateful for the wisdom that Kayse gently shared each day.
If you are in a season of feeling overwhelmed or discontent, commit ten days to change the way you are living your life. Applying just a few of these practical steps will radically help you refocus your priorities and get back to what matters most.
