Well, it has been awhile – to say the least since I stopped in here to say hi or inform you where I have been. Guess that kinda makes it hard for you to be with me…so, here I am. Time has flown by – can you believe it is already April?!
Time has been flying because I have been working – a lot. Though, I am not complaining because I have found that I actually really enjoy working. Sometimes, I think I may enjoy it too much. It is not due to loving what I do per se, but it is a place to get lost in – to escape the reality of what is really happening in life. This, my friends, is not healthy nor okay – I don’t want to be that woman who is in a relationship with her job – but it is so easy to get suck in. How does one fight against this temptation?
It is so easy for me to sit and justify to myself why I do this. But at the end of the day, it comes back to it is sin that stems out of unbelief. And this unbelief has multiple facets that is nasty. I want to fix myself – but that is the point I think God is trying to hit me upside the head with – I CANNOT FIX MYSELF. I need to stop being so freaking self-reliant and independent. I need to be more patient (great – not what we would call one of my strengths). I need Jesus. I need to trust God. And I need to let the Holy Spirit work. I am thankful that I am not saved by the strength of my faith or my attempt to live the “good Christian life” – whatever that truly is, but rather I am saved by the subject of my faith – Jesus Christ. Alone.
Since I have been gone I have not only been at work. I also went to California. Where the saga of to more or not to move still continues. Though, I am not going to expound on that right now – we will save that for a future post and thought. I still have not made up my mind one way or the other, but this process is showing me a lot about myself, relation to others – and especially my relation to the Lord. It has been hard, but good – seems to be a common theme in life (and a phrase used far too much, I want to find another way to word it, naturally…).
Do you ever find yourself being a workaholic? How do you fight it? What helps you?
