The Bible tells us that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Though we are multifaceted, it is possible to go through each day ignoring the aspects of our being that need attention and care. But after a time, fatigue can warn us that we need to stop and take stock.
If we consider the routine things that we need to do each day as making up the facets of our lives that form the ‘engine’ of our lives, then we could intentionally decide to take care of the ‘engine’ of our lives by addressing the routine things, to ensure that we can function in a healthy way.
Realizing that our lives are made up of many ‘taken forgranted’ repetitive activities, then learning to find beauty in the mundane, or ‘the simple things in life’ becomes a gift to ourselves. As we understand that each moment is precious and represents a part of our lives lived, how we view these moments will change and we can then become proactive in making the most of each moment.
As we realize that we need to be intentional in how we spend our time and how we organize the various facets of our lives, then we can assess what we need to do and make incremental changes. And the best place to start is to be clear about God’s calling on our lives; to experience a God-directed life.
Once we seek a God-directed purpose, next we can focus on optimizing how we live in each of these areas or facets. This self-discovery is an exciting time and during this time God reveals to us our talents and abilities and things that we never would have seen or known, because we were just too busy getting by each day; too busy to hear what God was telling us all along.
In many ways our lives can be compared to a puzzle, and at any given time though some areas of our lives might be going well, other areas might need some attention.
We will be sharing ways to enjoy the harmony that God desires us to experience. We invite you to join us on the journey of clarifying God’s calling, living each days with this knowledge, and experiencing balance and fulfillment.
