I don’t think we ever really know what we are getting ourselves into when we say YES and take on a new task. I know I don’t.
I tend to be a grass-is-greener type oh gal. So, I appreciate that my husband chases after me shouting the logic. Anyone else here take the logic being shouted before you will listen? Yah, well. Whatever.
I have taken on new tasks. Not today. I don’t mean that sort of present tense. This one is more of an ongoing swoop where I reach my arm out and take on one thing after another.
And many times when I repeat my life in words people say I am crazy. Maybe. But I’m not for a second going to sit by and make the smallest ripple possible. I plan to be affecting. Effecting. Affected. Infectious.
Idle is a four letter word. At the end of this life, I want my maker to play the video of my life and say, “She did what she could.”
I’m not here to play it safe and small. I’m here to do anything to bring people closer to the truth that Christ is worth every minute of their day.
To every thing there is a season.
A time to stand up and shout.
A time to lean in and be quiet.
A time to follow the logic that begs to be heard.
A time to put your toe in the water and walk across that dry land.
A time to heed a friend’s words.
A time to follow God’s words instead.
I want to do what I can. What are you doing today?
