For most of us, admitting we need a “reset” in life feels like failure. But what if God allows us to reach that point so we will simply…look up?
Hitting the reset button isn’t as scary as it sounds. Remember, His mercies are new every morning, and great is His faithfulness. We are blessed with the opportunity to hit “reset” each and every day! Yippee!
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a revision of things gone wrong, a reconstruction of the deepest places of my heart, and a restart covered in God’s mercies.
Anyone with me?
Here are 3 things to keep in mind when hitting the “reset” button in faith and life:
1. Remember who He created you to be.
I’m afraid it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. Wife, mom, daughter, friend, coworker…all of those things define us, but can also mask who we really are in Christ.
Who are you?
What talents are waiting to be shared?
How can you do what you love AND give God the glory?
2. Get rid of the clutter.
Not only are our homes stuffed with stuff, our minds and hearts are as well. Sisters, it is time to fill a box (or two) with whatever doesn’t belong.
Empty yourself of the habits, thoughts, behaviors, and things that are cluttering your life.
Seriously, make a list of things you do each day and cross out anything that needs to go. Then, make a new list of things to replace the old.
3. Nurture what is left.
Remember the old saying, “a place for everything and everything in its place”? That not only applies to our belongings, it applies to our work, our play, and our ministry.
Perhaps, it is time to reorder what we do and how we do it. Maybe, some very GOOD things need to come to an end, and you know what? It’s OK!
Whatever season you are in, I encourage you to take a step back and take a look around. Is everything in order? Do you need to pause for a moment and hit the reset button?
I would love to hear from you. Email and let me know where you are stuck or how you are flourishing!
