If you have ever had too many projects going at one time, you can relate to the overwhelming feelings that tends to wash over us when we’re unable to focus.
If every priority is urgent and needs to be completed first, it can paralyze us to the point that we are unable to even get started. I was beginning to feel that way with my desk. I don’t have a picture but you can image being unable to see the surface because of piles of paper and notebooks. The piles of work yet to be completed became a distraction.
Thankfully, I also have a husband who knows all the signs of this type of dilemma, and he helped me move the desk which required completely clearing it and starting over. I am in awe at how drastically a small change of focus can restore my spirit. I still have mountains of work, but they are now prioritized. I will be able to complete one thing at the time.
In the spiritual world, there is a clearing of the desk. We are moving forward because the Lord is making all things new. It’s been a mountainous journey for a while, but we’ve held on to our faith, and our promise that the Lord will prevail in our lives if we will trust him to lead us through the trials that we must face. I see his hand at work and there is a stirring of the spirit. The Lord is moving mountains and pulling down strongholds, and the end result is freedom to worship and grow. After forty days of prayer, we are beginning to reap the results. We shall be victorious.
In 2 Timothy 4: 7-8, Paul said, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”
In this week’s Lattereign, It’s Time to build a Foundation, because a strong church begins with a strong foundation.
