So I have come to the realization that I feel depleted of my energy, time and other resources due to a couple of reasons. Being a stay at home mom, the bulk of my job description is to take care of the home and my family. Many times I place serving them and managing the house over myself. Unfortunately, this has caused resentment to grow and fester within me.
The resentment that has grown is because God gave me a charge (or as some call it a purpose) some months back, but every time I would dedicate some time to it, I would be interrupted by something my husband or daughter needed or just life in general. Of course, this would take me off track and I would not end up doing even one thing I wanted to accomplish. So I watched a Periscope today about being intentional by planning at least one thing to do to each day this week to get you closer to your goal. This got me thinking that I really need an action plan.
I have spent most of my life going with the flow and just floating wherever life took me. I now see this philosophy for living has just wasted so much time, energy and resources. At least with a plan, I can learn to be more intentional about working toward the purpose God gave me. Also, I can even plan some much needed time to make sure I am fully recharged in order to give my family the best of me each day.
Well, I am willing to take on this challenge of planning my day even if it is just one thing I plan on doing to get closer to the goal set before me. James 2:17 KJV reminds us that "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." So I have my faith and now I just need to get to work!
