Have you ever seen those guys who spin plates for an act? You know, they get one plate spinning and then set it up on a little stick. Then they get a few more plates spinning and have to keep running back over to the first plates to get them spinning again before they fall and break.
Yeah. I'm that guy. Or girl. Whatever.
I feel like I have a lot of plates spinning and it's hard to keep them all going at once.
I'm still working on decluttering....sometimes.
I'm still trying to transform our budget...once in a while.
I'm still trying to sew Christmas presents...when I can find time.
I'm still trying to lose weight...everyday.
Then there's the homeschooling, the regular housework, my marriage, reading to my kids, Bible study, etc. etc. etc.
There are so many things I need to do and am trying to do that I feel a lot like those plate spinners. What always takes precedence are the squeaky wheels. That sewing sits undone because S needs clothes to wear to work. The budget doesn't get worked on because the school needs to get done. The decluttering is halted because I'm so busy just trying to keep up with the everyday clutter around here.
Are these excuses? A little, I guess. I KNOW it was more important for me to go to the driving range with my family the other night rather than work on stuff around here. LOTS of things are more important than having a perfect house. And yet, things need to get done.
But I know I have not been given more than I can bear. God is able to help me with all things that I need to do.
So why is it I forget to ask Him for help?
