Today’s management looks an awful lot like laziness. It isn’t accomplishing much, and the lack of effort being put into it is appalling.
Because, you see, the best way for me to get this week started off well, is for me to rest.
This past weekend took a lot out of me physically. I had several things on my to-do list and my physical energy is completely depleted.
Since I have an adrenal issue, I have to be super careful to allow my body to get the rest it needs. If I don’t, I have an adrenal crash. Those are painful. And scary. And deplete my body even further.
So to avoid that, I have to rest.
You may not have a physical issue that requires extra rest, but you are human! And that means you must have sleep and rest (physically, mentally, spiritually) every day.
I think we women have so much to do on a regular basis that “doing” becomes a habit. And often, our goal.
Just keep doing, doing, doing.
But are we working efficiently? Is our working accomplishing a desired end result? Is our current project even necessary?
These are only questions you and the Lord can answer together.
But I encourage you to allow yourself some down-time when you truly need it. Reject the lies of the enemy that your worth is reflected by your accomplishments.
Your worth is in Jesus. He gave His own life to forgive your sins and give you a home in Heaven with Him. *That* is where your worth lies!
So my Monday is being managed by my snuggling in my little red recliner and reading a book, as soon as I hit “Publish” on this post.
Maybe you need a nap today. If so, I hope you see what a crucial task that is for your week to go well. Go snuggle up with a book or a kiddo and rest your way into the week.
