When Your Plate is Overflowing

During this phase of my life it seems as if my list of obligations is miles long, and I have only a limited amount of time in the day to get everything accomplished. My plate is full… and overflowing. I struggle every day to get it all done before I lay my head down at night. But, you know what? If I do not get something done the world keeps turning!

The big picture here is that you will be completely fine if you are not perfect. The people who love you now will still love you just the same! But, more importantly, God is behind you through every up and down. During all of your struggles in life, he has your back – so turn to him for help. Do not let the worries of this world bring you down. Ever. Your purpose is so much bigger than whether you get that load of laundry folded, a healthy dinner cooked, or if you make that deadline at work. Yes, it seems as though the world is ending because you messed up – but it is not! You truly will be alright, so just do your best and ride this rollercoaster of a life.

Matt 11:28

These struggles are temporary. Whatever you are dealing with today, you may not even be thinking about in a week. Do not allow stress seep into your mind and steal your joy. If you miss one thing, don’t dwell on it. Instead, rejoice in all of the other things that you managed to accomplish instead.

Be gentle with yourself, my love, for you are amazing! Give yourself credit for all that you are and all that you do. You are pure gold, so do not ever let anyone make you feel any less. Keep your head up, and keep grinding because your blessings are coming. Don’t let the hard days cloud your mind and make you forget that this life is beautiful. Yes, it is messy too, but absolutely beautiful – and it is all yours to live!

With Love, Jeni
