Juggling Acts

“The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place” (Mark 6:30-32, NIV).

Do you ever feel like you’re spinning plates like one of those jugglers in the circus? Multitasking is a gift and it can be a blessing or a curse. Things can be moving along so well and everything is getting done on time, but can we be prepared for the unexpected, when one of those plates slips and falls. I don’t know about you but I know that there never seems to be enough hours in a day and two nights of consistent sleep.

No doubt that life is so busy with children. They work hard to get our attention. We like to keep the house in order while we hold down a job or home school, as well as activities that require running here and there. Wow! We do all that and possibly more while keeping our relationships healthy and intact. Now, where is the “me” time? Have you ever felt deprived of “me” time? Perhaps God is asking the same question of you? Child, where is my “me” time with you. He says, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

We are in harmony with ourselves when we are in harmony with the MAKER of the universe. True “harmony” is really the peace that the Lord gives deep inside. When we take some “me” time with the Lord, he is more than capable as the God of the universe to keep the world in motion, as well as all those plates you’re trying to juggle too. Who knows? You may even find that some of those plates you juggled, were never yours in the first place. They have always belonged to him to juggle for you.

Let’s Pray:

Dear Heavenly Father, I ask your forgiveness for the times when I failed to meet with you. I am humbled to know that you, my great and mighty God would want to spend time with me. I know that your Word says that if I seek you, I will find you. Please take this moment to speak to my heart. You have my undivided attention, in my every thought, my every word and deed, from this day forward. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
