Here I am

on September 22, 2012

I’m not sure where this is headed today. I know I need to write.
I just got through spending time in God’s presence.

As I laid before Him, everything in my life that means anything to
me or that is causing me to feel overwhelmed, I came to a conclusion.I feel overwhelmed, because I am overwhelmed.

I actually laid an object symbolic of a job or responsibility in my life
at this time including the three businesses that I work with on and
promote on pretty regular basis.

As I looked at the objects the thought came to me that I need to simplify. So, by process of elimination I decided that the flip flop representing my walk with God was number one to stay. That followed the glove that represented my family, then my Bible representing sharing scriptures with others. Next in line came a piece of paper with writing on it that represents my love for writing. So that just left the businesses.

Wow! Since I don’t really ever want to be a team leader, I eliminated one business and the facebook page and the networking that goes with it. It was starting to look more doable. I was starting to feel lighter.

Next came my special facebook page. I didn’t want to give that up. That’s where I share all kinds of things and will one day put this blog and perhaps some kind of interactive Vacation Bible School material for Middle School aged kids that are often forgotten. So, that was a keeper for sure.

Two businesses left. The one lets me kind of do what I want with it, so I decided to keep it but not so heavily promote it. The third one is more like joining Cosco every month and I truly want to use their products and will be easy to maintain a downline, should we ever have one. So there you have it. I am now simplified all because I was willing to say Here I am! Do you need to say Here I am?

When a container is full it’s nearly impossible to put more in it. But now my container has a little bit of extra space. Maybe God has something special waiting for that extra space:)

    What a beautiful post Pamela! Kudos to you for being surrendered and finding the way to simplify that worked for you. And that feeling of ‘lightness’ is your bonus confirmation that you’re on the right track!!

    Great post. It’s amazing what can come into our life when we take the time to clear up some space. I can’t wait to see what comes in for you.

  3. Productive time spent with the Master. Perfect place to go when you are overwhelmed. Thanks for sharing that, Pamela! 🙂
