Busy ... Busy ... Busy...

Being busy………….what a blessing that is! If you are running around your house cleaning… getting ready for company… what a blessing that is!! First that you can run … second.. you have a house… and third.. you have friends to come over.
If you are busy crafting… with a slight panic that you wont get things done in time… making gifts for folks…. What a blessing that is. First that you have the talent to craft. Second… your panic is really a strong desire from love… and third… you are blessing someone else with a gift of love.
You’re sitting at work with a pile of papers on your desk that need to be done by the end of the day…. What a blessing. have a job in the first place. Second… your boss and co-workers have such confidence in you that they bring their needs to you. And third… you have the whole day!
So… next time you’re BUSY. Don’t let it get clouded over by stress…… its not stressful to be busy… it’s a BLESSING! Why would anyone want to just sit… do nothing… giving satan the perfect opportunity to sit down with you and chat….?!?
Its amazing how satan can take any situation and try to get to you with it.
Lets take these busy situations here and do this…………………..
Running around cleaning for company. Uhoh… company doesn’t show up. Now… are you going to let satan get to you? Make you upset at your friend? Or maybe frustrated that you did all that work for nothing? Hmmmmmm? I say… Thank you God… my house is clean and I can relax now with coffee.. a good book or craft!!!
Busy Crafting a gift for someone. Oh man… they bought one for themselves at a craft fair. Are you going to let satan get to you? No worries… you just got a call from another friend that is in need of comfort…that leads you to giving them that gift you have DONE! Praise God! He never leaves us hanging. When something doesn’t look like its going to work.. or go the way WE planned it… He shows us another way!
All that paper work on your desk? What? Your boss says he doesn’t need it till Friday? Well…………….Praise God its done… you can get other things caught up… and take an Hour lunch tomorrow from missing lunch today because you worked through it which will give you time to drive across town to get that special gift for that special someone! Yippie…its on sale that day too! Your boss and co-workers will be grateful to have their needs met ahead of schedule! What a Blessing!

So.... stay busy and be blessed!!!
Huge hugs… lots of love and busily blessed……

Wonderful post! Too many people let Satan get them down when something doesn't go according to their plan but we have to realize God's plan is way bigger than our plan. Thanks for the devotion!
