Some of my fellow Review Crew members are a part of this "Five Minute Friday" link up. I usually look through some of their posts and think - yeah, but I wouldn't know what to say. That sounds weird coming from a blogger, right? But, usually I write about what is on my heart and mind. I'll make a printout for our kiddos or come up with an activity for your littles to do.
Then, they shared what the word for this week is going to be - Should. My mind started to race with thoughts of all of the things that I "should" do.
* do the laundry
* write more posts
* make breakfast
* clean the bathrooms
* make my bed
* play a game with my youngest
* serve my family
That's how my life seems to be run - on what I should do. As a preacher's wife, my life was run by what I "should" be doing for the church and the people of the church. Teach Sunday School because they are short teachers. Teach Jr. Church because they are short teachers. Teach Wednesday night kids classes because, yep, you guess it, they are short teachers. Lead the Women's Ministry. Clean out the supply cabinet. Decorate the room. Call this person to encourage them (I'll have to tell you later why this is such a huge issue for me). Do this - Do that. Do...do...do for others. Everyone had expectations for me for everything that I SHOULD be doing.
That's not what I want, though. I don't want to go-go-go and do-do-do.
This is what I SHOULD be doing. I need to just "be". I need to sit at His feet and let my God do.
As I come to find out, what I actually "should" be doing is actually what I want to be doing! Throw aside people's expectations and follow Him.
