I let too much go on lately in my life.
Too many orders taken, too much with my mind on too many things.
The worries and cares of life that are spoken about in the Bible that can choke out the Word.
Let all be done in love.
My emotions were tired and high pitched every day and my walk seemed so distant, though the Lord's presence was still there, His encouragement still heard.
I was getting worried over things in the world, worried over people, worried over orders to do.
Worried too much. The cares of the world can choke the Word.
It came to me this morning that I was too busy, and when I get too busy I don't live my life well.
I don't love on the grand kids as I should, purposeful actions of caring and taking the time in love.
I don't relate to people that I have to do with in love and truth.
I am not as careful to dedicate time to them, in love, to be careful to speak the truth with care.
I don't do all I do in love, I leave off what is most important.
I haven't waited on the Lord, to just sit and be with Him and allow Love's presence to water my own life.
Out of that time and relationship Love flows out to my own life, and I can live.
And from that, love is present for others.
Then am I aware how important they are, to love them with the love of Jesus Christ. With the care He shows.
In quietness and confidence will be our strength.
We draw up out of the Well, Living Waters, and thirst no more.
That is our Lord. He is the Living Waters. We go to the Well.
Our lives should have nothing between the lines, but love should be there.
Love clothes. Love cares. Love protects.
Love saturates. Love pours out on lives and waters them.
Making the days count. Do everything in love.

Love is the key word--The fruit of the Spirit. Well done for sharing your heart Kathy. From this sharing, others can stop and think, then allow God to redirect their steps. We do get a little carried away sometimes. Last year I could feel that there was distance between me and my Lord, due to being too busy. I had to prioritise and I am much better for it today. I spend more quality time with my Lord and my family and am slowly reorganising...Lots of love. Jan
