When it gets busy be rooted in God who sustains.
We juggle chores, responsibilities, spouses, children, and jobs, all while trying to look graceful and cheerful. The world tells us to grin and bear our rushed lives with grace and charm. We should just smile and suppress our exhaustion, while pretending to be someone who has life all figured out. How can we manage a packed life and find joy among the seasons of busyness? Life can go at a break-neck speed if you let it.
Make a conscious effort to slow down your life, and to savor the moments you have with family.
While a to-do-list a mile long can be overwhelming and daunting, break your day into manageable pieces of time and focus only on the MOST important items to get done at that time. Saying Goodbye to Survival Mode, by Crystal Paine, offers practical suggestions and solutions to help you identify your priorities.
She walks you through setting routines and establishing boundaries to help you find balance and recover your joy. My copy is dog-eared and has frantic bibles in the margin! Be fully present and focused on the task at hand, no matter what that task is. Be careful not to let social media destroy your allotted time to get things done! By allowing room for sickness, tiredness, and just plain life, you feel better knowing there will be time to finish the task at hand. Breathe, by Priscilla Shireris a must-have resource for the busy woman who tries to do it all!
She gently points to the freedom found in taking a Sabbath rest, as well as practical solutions for making it woman for you. When I focus on my to-do-list, I am likely to have a panic attack and want to retreat back to bed! For when I focus on the peace that is promised by the Lord, my heart is tuned to sing His praises, even in my busiest moments. I can then lay my rushed and hurried life at His verses, praying for Him to guide my steps. When busy seems out of control, I remember that He is IN control.
My busy, distracted life is not what He wants from me. He wants my bible to be tuned towards Him, praising Him for His sacrifice at the cross. And when my eyes are busy on Jesus, that alone fills and completes a busy woman like nothing else.
When we try to be perfect and verse the illusion that we have life figured out on our own, we are diminishing our need for a Savior. Ask yourself why are you striving to be perfect. Is it to show others how great you are? Or is it a heart-issue that needs to be surrendered to the Lord? Our need to be woman can become an idol; one where we take our eyes off For and put them onto the good works we are doing.
Learn to enjoy life again. Laugh, dance, sing, and just be silly, as a way to release the stress. Make time for rest. Sarah Ann is a perfectly imperfect wife and mother, and is thankful for the saving grace of the Lord.

Bible verses for the worn out woman
Thank you so much Sarah Ann for linking up to my new link party! It means more than you will ever know! You did a wonderful job of sharing your insights along with perfect Bible verses to illustrate those insights. Psalm is one of my favorite reminders to slow down.
What astounds me is that we all know this and yet we need constant reminders. Thanks for the reminder today, Sarah Ann. We DO need constant reminders! I wish I could say I easily learned and more importantly, remember these truths from the Lord, but I apparently have a short memory when it comes to remembering what God has done on my behalf.
