The last three days were more of a marathon than I anticipated. I had two competing deadlines Friday, and I have another major one tomorrow. Not only did I write 10 hours Thursday, but Friday was also a 10-hour day and yesterday was a 9-hour day. I'm moving and thinking a little slowly this morning.
Tomorrow, I start what looks to be another long week, so I'm taking it very easy today. We're going grocery shopping, and that's it as far as work / chores is concerned.
What I want to share, though, is something that happened yesterday. When I woke up in the morning, I really didn't know how I was going to get through the day. But as I sat down to the computer, I felt the Lord giving me an image of floating, relaxed on a salty sea. I sensed that he was telling me not to fight my workload but just to give myself to it and do each task as it came. So that's what I did, and I accomplished more yesterday than I expected I would. I thought I was going to have to carry about four hours of work into Monday in order to meet tomorrow's deadline. Instead, I have only about two hours to do. The reason this is so important is that I have a full day of work for my other job once I finish the carryover.
Yesterday, it was really tempting to skip my prayer time and get right to work after breakfast, but I chose not to do that. I'm glad I didn't. I don't know if I would have sensed God's message to me if I hadn't been listening.
Have a restful Sunday.
