What I Missed


Wow! Have I been busy! But I must say that this busyness has been super fulfilling. I’ve met with lots and lots of ladies in ministry. I’ve made connections with Bible study leaders and I’ve been re-energized with a great sense of purpose in my life.

Maybe you’ve experienced this in the past. You missed a friend’s birthday. You forgot to pay a bill. You didn’t make the appointment when you should. You overlooked something important. Why? Probably because of busyness.


I read this verse of Scripture this morning as a reminder to me that I really can’t do this work of God on my own. I’ll make mistakes. I’ll miss the connections. I’ll do my part to mess it up. But with God at the forefront of my day-to-day life, He will help me when I need it most.


“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:8 – NIV)


What a beautiful promise! God is able—I’m not. God will provide—I can’t. God knows—I don’t. God works—I follow.


God’s work is important, but when the busyness of His work keeps us from really doing His work, then the busyness needs to stop. This is really easy to do when doing full-time ministry.


There are a lot of to-do items on my list today, but top and center will be to connect with Karen. Who is it that you need to connect with today? Who needs to hear from you? Don’t let your busyness get in the way to making the important connections.


Keep the verse above in front of you this week. If you’re like me, you’ll need to be reminded more than once!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
