The past few days have been about refocusing energies and quiet time. I definitely needed the time to analyze my thought processes again as well as get rid of the distracting thoughts. The daily process is a continual thing that needs realignment. I took the time necessary and back in the swing of things. I will be posting to the 2016 Ready Journey on Saturday. Making the commitment to a weekly submission has definitely brought about reorganization.
I want to share that sometimes we have all the tools we need but when we add something new to do we want to add a new tool even though the ones we have work fine. Not sure what the cause of that is but I reorganized, reviewed the tools I had and got rid of the new ones where the old tools were just fine. I laugh at myself because I tend to want to create a new calendar, list, etc. when I add something new to my process. That is so over. It is about fine tuning now because I want to accomplish so much more and redoing lists is not on the list! Laughing out loud at myself because making sure I have my quiet time with God is so much more important.
I was quiet over the last couple of days because I needed to be. My alone time with God has been very fruitful. I needed to refuel. There is nothing like getting back on track or on the same page as God. Emptying myself of the distractions (you know the darts the enemy tends to throw at us) and making sure (as sure as I can be) of what I am doing to stay in God’s will. Staying true to the writing commitment and adding the photography as well as the reading journey for this year, realignment was necessary. I do have to say that it is necessary to be very aware of our thought process. When too much time is spent on the unnecessary thoughts or the darts from the enemy, you lose sight of what’s important for a moment.
It is necessary for me to be in the Word daily, refueling and reinforcing the Word on a daily basis is so critical. The change in our thought process can certainly sneak upon us when we are unaware. Keeping the right perspective is so important in this daily journey. Keeping God first, my thoughts aligned to His will and doing what is necessary for my purpose and promise by the power in Christ is the daily mantra.
