what time is it?

Oct 10, 2010

I have a clock in our bedroom that isn’t all that great at showing us what time it is. It is a digital clock and it is often missing parts of its numbers so that I really have no idea what time it is. Every once in while, all the parts show up and I can tell what time it is.

Although it is still using electricity and is acting as though it is doing what it was created to do, the clock isn’t fulfilling its mission to inform me what time it is.

I am feeling like my clock. I am going through the motions of life, but I don’t think I am being all that effective in my missions of motherhood, sisterhood, service-hood, etc. I want to spend my time on those things I know God wants me to do, but I am pretty overwhelmed by so many different things and going so many different directions, that I don’t think I am being effective in any of them.

Just like my clock, sometimes I shine clear and strong and know I am doing just what I was created to do, being just what I was created to be. Other times, I am missing quite a few of my parts and am not being true to myself or to my God.

I am pondering how to right this situation and so far I have no answers.
