I hope you are doing SUPERBLY WELL TODAY.
Eric and I are knee-deep into about four different projects and we are respecting our need for PEACE and we are NOT pushing ourselves to get today’s podcast recorded, posted and such.
As I made that decision, you know what helped me? Fruit.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” Galatians 5:22
And this: “By their fruits you will know them.” Matthew 7:16a
It might seem that pushing ourselves beyond the norm would be the way to go. Yet is STRESS part of that list in Galatians?
So give yourself permission to take something off of your To Do List if it is causing the bad fruit of stress. Just remove it. (This does not mean removing people. Ha.)
Rearrange your life a bit. It’s okay.
And enjoy the fruit of the Spirit of God.
LIFE IS FOR LIVING. Not freaking over everything.
Peace, Lori Doerneman
