Whisper Words of Wisdom: Let It Be(an)

At first, I became nervous and overwhelmed that I did not meet my blogging goals, yet again, this past month. But then it dawned on me; isn’t this what my intention was for the new year. To take thing slow. To avoid getting ahead of myself and, therefore, stay true to God’s timing instead of attempting to take things in my own hands.

So far this month, I have been incorporating this mindset of balance more than I ever have before. I am noticing the change. I begin to fight this slower pace that I am slowly becoming accustomed to. But then it dawned on me. 

Leave everything in God’s hands and eventually, you’ll see God’s hand in everything.

I am okay with a slower pace because God’s timing is more important than mine. Society has a way of making one feel pressured to accomplish things. What good is it if we are rushing through each moment. There is comfort in peaceful moments yet I find it thrilling to constantly accomplish things.

It’s as if my worth is in the quantity of a to-do list as opposed to the quality of my relationship with God.

This process of self-discovery has brought out parts of me that I choose to ignore. I do not want to ignore this anymore. I want to seize every opportunity to adapt because life is constantly changing and, although I might fight this change, life gives me no other opportunity than to embrace it. So kudos to self-love. Kudos to finding my worth in Christ and not an accomplishment. I hope this encourages you to slow down today. I hope you find the time to engage in the rest that your soul craves.

  1. Oh my soul totally needed to read this post!! I’m always go go go, do do do. I tend to feel guilty for taking time for myself just to be. Today I got up and got some things done around the house and now im just going to “be” the rest of the day!! Be Blessed!!

  2. I love your transparency here. The last lap of 2017, I blogged almost everyday. But in January 2018, I went back to work and couldn’t keep up with my blogging pace. I was so hard on myself and I was getting frustrated until I remembered what my priorities where. Now I do twice a week (if I can) but this has helped me avoid burn out. My children are more important than blogging and I don’t want them coping with a burnt out mama. So cheers to slowing down when needed😊❤️

    1. Yes, I love how you explain this! It becomes a lot when school is in session and I tended to get myself so worked up about guilt for not staying on top of blogging. I started to let myself back away a bit…hence my month long hiatus. lol I think it is great that you have found a happy medium and are spending quality time with your children. Blessings! Xoxo

  3. I can absolutely relate to your words in this post. I’m on a mission to find my worth in Jesus too. I’ve got thoughts to process through, but each time I do it brings me a little closer to that goal and a lot more peace. I do have to learn to slow down and enjoy the moments. I’m very gung-ho. Too much so, that I can easily get discouraged or depressed. I think that’s getting better. God is faithful. Thanks for sharing, Kiki. It’s a blessing to cross paths with like minded people.
