Today I had a wee tiny bit of time to evaluate my responsibilities and to ask, "what can I give away"?
I identified several things and have emails and calls out recruiting. But by in large I didn't find much. Guess it's just the creative nature of my job. And that's ok.
I'm not sure outside of the ministry I have much to eliminate either since I barely have time for hobbies anymore. Funny how you wrongly think once your kids are grown you'll have time to pursue all the new things you've never done...NOT! And that's ok.
Finally I asked myself, if I can't find things to eliminate, why do I still spend less time with the Lord then I want to? I decided I won't stop trying to eliminate things until that area is completely fulfilling.
And then it occurred to me, maybe my thirst for the Lord is just unquenchable...and, that's ok.
