one thing

We probably have fairly similar lives with lots of demands & responsibilities – maybe yours are different than mine, but we usually have lots of things to juggle (kids’ schedules, saving Moses, workload concerns, personal goals, family dynamics, church things, . . . .).  You probably have a similar list & I’ve often had people ask me for ideas on how to balance everything.  If I’m honest, there are times when I don’t balance everything well & some things get short changed, which I hate.

But lately, I’ve found it really helpful to nestle into “one thing” – the essential & continuous priority that permeates everything (sleeping, eating, cooking, errands, conversations, work, blogging, thinking, planning, . . . . . ).  My “one thing” is to know Jesus and I want everything that I do to be infused with this “one thing” – Luke 10:42.  “One thing” doesn’t mean that I drop everything, but it means that as I go throughout each day with its diverse demands and responsibilities, my “one thing” continues and remains 🙂

Typlified in guy language by Jack Palance in “City Slickers” w/ Billy Crystal when he points to the sky and says ‘ you just gotta figure out that one thing”.. Many are on the quest but few there be that find it.

When we loose that focus, we know we are too busy. Thankyou Sarah for this reminder.
