Prioritization: Working as Yourself

Beloved, Do Your “Thang”

Priorities. I’d love to put a great blog post out all the time, even multiple times a week.  After all, don’t others do that?  When our plates are full, it’s tempting to look around and wonder, “How in the world do they do it?” The simple answer is priorities…and maybe resources.  However, I venture to say that sticking to their own prioritization list is key.  Sometimes, you just have to acknowledge when you are unable to do it all.  Actually, you might acknowledge that you don’t need to do it all.  Seek wisdom.  Given your specific season of life, determine what is necessary, what can be added, and what needs to be removed (temporarily or permanently).

Understand this:

Those who appear to be doing all you want to do, probably aren't doing all you do. #Grace. Click To Tweet

Some deeply burdened person needed to read and hear that.  Maybe that was you.  Maybe someone you know could use that too.  Share it.  Let’s show ourselves and each other some grace today.  Be encouraged.  You are not alone.  God has equipped each of us.  He strengthens us to work our own lists and run our own race, not the race meant for someone else.  Amen!

My Assignment

As for me, I made the choice to prioritize book writing for now.  You will just have to forgive me for a sporadic blog posting schedule, rather than being more consistent.  I’m okay with it.  Eventually, I too will find my “groove” again as my priority list changes.  For now, my writing schedule is laser focused on book writing.  Fortunately, I can report making good progress toward the completion of “Unlocking Peace.”  This book blesses me, and I believe it will bless others to understand and walk in the peace God intended.

Key Take-away:  You are blessed and others are blessed when you do what is intended for you to do – whatever that may be.  Don’t let comparison traps discourage you and distract you from accomplishing the assignment God has placed in front of you!
