With the kids in school, Jeremy and I have had lots of time to talk and reflect. The other day he brought up a blog post he’d read, a challenge to find the one thing in your life that, if changed, would transform all other parts of your life. I knew what that one thing was, because God was already pinpointing it.
I want to live in a more relaxed state. You might be saying, “Who doesn’t?” Probably everyone does, but here’s the deal with me. I worry (a lot) which leads to stress. I put expectations on myself that sometimes leads to stress. I take on responsibilities that aren’t mine to take on which, you guessed it, leads to stress.
It wasn’t until recently that I realized I’ve been operating in these patterns for many years. The roots are deep, so I’m extending lots of grace for myself in this process of cutting out the branches and digging up those roots. I’ve been reflecting on Galatians 5:1 this week…
Unhealthy patterns lead to bondage, which is not what Christ intended for us. So, I’m working on my one thing. I can easily see how this will transform my whole being. How about you? Do you have a one thing that is standing out? Something that God is pinpointing that will transform every aspect of your life?
