Found these quotes that describe my life at the moment. Can you relate?
“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” – Socrates … and …
“He who is too busy doing good finds no time to be good.” – Rabindranath Tagore
Then I began to think that maybe that wasn’t what I was about, but more about how important the work I have been doing is. Then, I came across these quotes.
“If you’re a preacher, you talk for a living, so even if you don’t make sense, you learn to make nonsense eloquently.” – Andrew Young …and…
“Preaching is effective as long as the preacher expects something to happen-not because of the sermon, not even because of the preacher, but because of God.” – John E. Hines
Those started me thinking again. I began to ask myself a few questions. I had to ask, aren’t I working all these hours so God can say something to the people He has called me to serve? Do I trust Him enough to listen to what he says to me? Is what I am called to do what my life is for? Do I need to find a balance between what I do – my work, and who I am – my life?
“Among the works of man, which human life is rightly employed in perfecting, the first in importance surely is man himself” – John Stuart Mill …and…
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” – Albert Einstein
In the midst of all the busy, I found my answers – to life, to purpose, to who I am. Praise God!
