Blinded by the Everyday
Does your Monday start off like this?
1. Do laundry
2. make menu
3 take dinner out of freezer
4. make bed
5. call mom
6. plan baby shower
7. feed cats
8. fold laundry and put it away
9. write a chapter
10. and the list goes on.....
Is your life similar to this list? Most likely it is. We get bogged down, blinded by what we find important tasks. It's true these things must be done but what are we missing while doing them?
This week while crossing off your list of things I challenge you to take time and say Jesus, thank you for having laundry to do, food to eat and the work you've been called to do.
I've been doing this for a few weeks and it is slowly helping me remove the blinders of routine and appreciate the gifts God has given me.
Anyone want to accept the challenge of doing this with me?
