I have the type A personality. The only way I feel like I have accomplished something is by getting my to-do list done. I am totally panicking because I have SO much to do, and not enough time to do it.
Laundry never ends. The dishes keep piling up, and so many house projects to get done. I feel like I’m spinning out of control! I’m constantly reminding myself to let go of perfection. That’s one of my biggest struggles! Anyone else out there feel the same?
I was doing quiet time the other day and ran across a devotional. It mentioned that we have 86,400 seconds in a day. Every morning we are credited 86,400 seconds. At the end of the day we lose every second that wasn’t invested in something good. The devotional also goes on to say, “Yesterday is a canceled check. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today is the only cash you have. Spend it wisely”.
The devotional had me feeling convicted, and thinking twice about everything. I have to stop putting that pressure on myself to be perfect. My Husband doesn’t expect me to be, and my kids for sure don’t expect me too. So why do I expect myself to be perfect?
86,400 seconds in a day. Think about that. What will you choose to do with them? I hope and pray that you choose to spend them wisely.
