Three Ring Circus

As you may have noticed, life is busy around here lately (with the lack of posts and all!). God has me busy for a purpose and that purpose is: I am the laziest person I know!

If I could, I would watch TV, surf the web, nap, and eat all day long! I am inherently lazy and slothful and I know this about myself. I completely understand that part of my sin nature. I don't like it, but I understand it...

There are some people who can only be involved in one thing at a time, and they do that one thing with excellence. They are quickly overwhelmed by the mere thought of adding more to their plate...so they don't. And that works for them.

I am not that way. I have always needed more of a three-ring-circus type life so that I will do even one thing well. If I don't have deadlines and commitments, not much happens. So...not that my way is good at all, but it helps me to serve better.

I do sense God's pleasure in my life. Though I get tired, I am peaceful about where I am and what I am doing.

When do you sense God's pleasure? What makes you tick? Are you a one-ring, two-ring, or three-ring kind of person? I challenge you to figure it out....and then go do it...all for the glory of God!

I am just like you! I do better if I have a lot going on...I like having more than one project and commitment in my life. It may seem crazy at times, but it's all worth it when it honors and glorifies God!

I wish God would bless with me just a one ring circus! But somehow my circus grows larger every day, but yet He's always in control.
