Head Down, Heart Towards Heaven

I’m feeling the pinch today. Too much to do and not enough time to get it all done. Procrastination is a small part of it. Overcommitment is another much bigger piece. It’s one of those weeks where work demands that are out of my control are crashing into work demands that I simply must get done. So, I kick into slow mode and avoid it all. As soon as I finish this, I’m going to have to put my head down and work hard.

It’s always been this way, you know. Ever since we were kicked out of the garden for our stupid choice to run things ourselves, it’s been like this. We can invent all of the amazing technology we want, it will always be this way. It’s the cost of doing things our own way.

So, I’m going to try to push towards God today and listen even more for His promptings. Its too easy to ignore Him when I get overwhelmed and buried. Today, I’m choosing to walk in the other direction. I’m going to work as hard and as fast as I can, but I’m going to keep my heart listening for His guidance.

It can only help.
