Find, Seek, Live

When I think about the month of May, I think of Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, my sister’s birthday, our Women’s Brunch, Memorial Day, the beginning of summer, and so on. Busy, busy, busy, and so goes the month.

Life is happening and moving fast. So, how do we keep up with it all? One word comes to mind – balance. It is so important to take a step back, sit down and prayerfully plan your day. We are only one person and can only accomplish a limited number of things in a day. Don’t allow yourself to be overwhelmed.

“A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9

We can be thankful we serve a God who is so much bigger than we are. Our God can see the big picture, leading and directing us as we go. We are busy living life, and sometimes we even get thrown a curveball…. This is exactly why we need God! As we are busy making plans, day-by-day, we should prayerfully include God in all we do. There are so many good things we can do. Then, there are the things we must do. Let’s not forget the things we want to do. God will show us how to balance all these things.

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

Enjoy your day, month and year because that is God’s desire for you!

  • Find balance.

  • Seek God’s direction.

  • Live your life with joy.

Happy May everyone!
