Raising Generations Today: Slowing Down and Thriving with Prayer

Sometimes serving the Lord isn’t easy. I’m typically an all-or-nothing type of girl.  A downfall of this?  I’m not great at juggling. I prefer to focus only on one task at a time, not multiple projects at once.
That’s what I prefer.  As a wife and mother, that obviously isn’t the cards that are always presented me.

At one time, the Lord opened up new ministry opportunities, and I excitedly ran with what He gave me.  It didn’t take long to realize that I couldn’t physically do everything I was doing, at least not gracefully.  After a talk with a dear friend, she helped open my eyes to all the responsibilities I had taken.  I simply listed my current responsibilities out loud, what I typically did each week and any monthly responsibilities. Those small commitments that don’t really take up much time can add up to a person who isn’t great at juggling.  Next, we went down the list to see if I still felt the Lord calling me to each of those responsibilities.
I knew it was time to let some go. To slow down. I began praying, seeking Him for answers, but I just did not seem to be getting a clear answer.
