Isn't that the truth?? The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Matthew 26:41)
I have every intention of juggling all the hats on my head: wife, mom, friend, lover, cook, maid, accountant, event planner/keeper, and whatever else comes along.
and I ONLY HAVE ONE CHILD.
oh my goodness… to those moms with more than one… GO YOU! :)
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Idleness = not working, not active, participating in gossiping, discontent, and self-pity (amp)
Titus 2:5 amp
[Young women are] to be self-controlled, chaste, homemakers, good-natured (kindhearted), adapting, and subordinating themselves to their husbands, that he Word of God may not be exposed to reproach (discredited).
Self-controlled = the ability to control oneself, in particular one's emotions and desires, especially in difficult situations
Chaste = morally pure, descent, simple & plain, restrained, and not sinful
What does this have to do with time management, you ask?
Well, I believe we are called to exhibit the attributes listed in Proverbs 31:27 and Titus 5:2.
We all have different gifts and talents that we can use in our homes. Every home will look different, but the foundations look the same according to the versus above.
For example, I may not cook as good or as efficiently as other moms/wives, but that doesn't discourage me from trying and learning from those who do it better. I pinterst, read blogs, ask my friends questions, and love to GROW in this area. I'm just happy I like to cook now, when i first got married I never cooked- never ever! And I wasn't good at it when I tried. But, I kept trying.
I encourage you to seek God and pray about the gifts He's given you. If you're unsure of what those gifts are, just ask Him. He'll reveal it to you.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
What are you gifts?
How do you manage your precious time?
