During my quiet time today I read this little tidbit and thought you (whoever you are) may enjoy or need. It definitely spoke to my soul this morning.
from Completely Loved by Shannon Ethridge (page 19)
Ephesians 2:10 reminds us that "we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (NIV). So by all means, devote as much time and service to God as possible. But don't underestimate the power you hold to accomplish the Lord's work by being the best, most well-rounded person you can be. Don't feel guilty about the time you invest in the routine things to simply keep life working for you and those you care for. Trust that God is not only the Redeemer of your soul, but also the Redeemer of your time.
