God has a way of getting my attention. I am Type A PERSONALITY to the 10th power. If I can do it; it’s DONE. If I can FIX IT; it’s done. I run at sprint speed with most things in my life. I am that person who’s always doing. I am always pursuing the proverbial “IT”. I feel extreme discomfort when I can’t DO or if I am not moving fast enough.
Lately I feel like God has tied my hands behind my back and has placed me in TIME OUT. I feel like throwing a temper tantrum or manipulating my desires verbally to those standing around me with free hands. There’s so much that I want to do. There’s so much that I need to do. If I can just untie my hands I can get it all done and maybe a little more.
But as I stand in the corner I realize that GOD is handling my business on my behalf. I am making strides without working myself into the ground. I am able to walk away and things not fall apart; actually things seems Exceptionally Well! I do believe that true SUCCESS is found in going the extra mile. But as I stand in TIME OUT with my hands tied up; I realize that there’s nothing wrong with clocking out mentally and physically at times.
I feel extreme GUILT for not maximizing all the time that I have; but I realized that GOD knows my heart. God knows that I am not a lazy bum and that he will pick up the slack to make sure my desires come to fruition! As I stand with my hands tied up I am thankful to learn this lesson. I hope to remember this once my hands become untied and I get back into sprint mode!
Moral of the Story: I don’t have to give all of ME away! Who knew? I can actually WIN by not going the “extra, extra, EXTRA” mile. I can take a (small) break from the grind!
