MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: I had a couple of things happen while I was in the hospital. I thought I’d share this one today as we ALL start a new year and probably have decisions to make as to what we put our hands to.
The Lord came to me and took me on a journey. It was almost as if we were on a board game, but in 3D. The board game was LOADED with things, groups of people, opportunities....He took me with Him as we floated along between all of the happenings on the board. Soooo many good and great things. I could find myself distracted and looking. The Lord said “Look at ME.” And then he put THREE red heart tokens in the palm of my hands. “You have THREE.” I knew he meant there were only three things I could INVEST my heart in. Only three things I am to give my ALL to. As I looked at the three tokens in my hands, I had such an awareness of how INTENTIONAL I must be with my heart and my time. I realized that I (and probably most of us) do NOT have the capacity to participate in as many things as we have possibly believed in the past.
I think the world has had us fooled. Especially women. Messages of doing it all. Having it all. Bringing home the bacon AND frying it up in a pan. We truly do NOT have the capacity to do all we’ve been fooled into thinking we are to do. The ripple effects of being spread too thin are far and wide.
As for me, I KNOW I am walking a tightrope of awareness that IF I want to live and breathe and operate out of REST and PEACE...then I must realize I do not have as many heart tokens as I once believed. I have THREE and the intentionality and discernment around them must be guarded with all that I am.
