Hello, again. It’s Monday and it’s raining. Rainy days and Mondays always get . . . well, not necessarily. There is much to do. Places to go. People to see. Business is good as long as it doesn’t turn to busyness. I do believe there is a difference.
Business is actually accomplishing something, regardless of its importance. Busyness is doing for the sake of doing, and that takes away from accomplishing your goals – whether they are goals in writing or anything else you undertake.
The older I get, the more I realize time is short and there is none to waste. I look back and see all the time that has already been wasted, and I don’t want to go that route anymore. You know what! By looking back, I’ve already wasted time. Keep moving ahead, one foot in front of the other.
It’s okay to look back if you can learn from your mistakes, but please don’t dwell on them (I’m assuming you’ve made some mistakes, too). Psalm 37:4 tells us, “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” I don’t believe that’s a blank check for anything we may desire. I believe if we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will place within us His desires for our life. His desires become our desires. If we delight in the Lord, our goals, our dreams, come from Him and He will fulfill them. Of course, this doesn’t apply if we are full of busyness. Focus on business, and your attempts will be fruitful.
