Busy, Busy, Crazy

imageWell, I spent last week at Ft. Walton Beach for our 45th Wedding Anniversary. It was wonderful, and so relaxing reading on the patio of our condo and listening to the waves crashing onto shore. I read the book, “Crazy Busy” by Kevin DeYoung. This is just not another book on tips on how to be more organized, but with biblical tools to examine the true motives to why we are so truly BUSY.  Let’s look at Proverbs 19:21 “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” When we look at all THE STUFF we have on our daily schedules, are they things we want to do, are they things we have to do, are they thing we feel we should do or are they things The Lord has guided us to do?  We should search all these areas of our Busy Crazy days. Once we start to analyze each of these questions we can get to the heart of the problem. Yes, we were created to be busy, but be busy with what?  Now let’s look at the second half of our verse, “but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Our desires should be doing the work of The Lord. Where are your desires? Are you following your heart or the Lord’s? I pray each day that I will be more aware of my busyness and for whom am I being busy.
