Insights Resulting From A Haircut

Window View Lace CurtainsDo you ever have one of those days where you just didn’t structure your time efficiently? I knew my friend was coming to give us haircuts this morning, and I knew she’d come later than expected. But rather than using the time going through emails or (ahem!) reading my Bible, I experimented with my digital art program.

After she left, I did read my Bible and I went through most of my emails. That, of course, left little time for blogging. Especially about the topics that have been rumbling around in my head lately.

Knowing that I’ll be taking most of next week off from blogging (my sister is coming from California to visit) increases the pressure I feel to blog today. That’s probably not healthy. I should be disciplined in blogging, yes — but not legalistic! This blog exists to honor the Lord, not to keep me under tyranny.

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. ~~Galatians 5:1 (ESV)

Even through blogging is my ministry, the Lord never intended that I become enslaved to it. It’s a tool for serving Him, not a means of maintaining His favor. Shame on me for allowing such a wonderful way of serving Him to morph into a thing of bondage!

Yes, I should have organized my time better. But God’s grace is sufficient, even for that. And perhaps that’s the whole point of this blog post. Perhaps some of you feel driven, especially as he holidays approach, to be Ms. Perfect, doing everything you expect yourselves to do in order to keep the Lord happy. Maybe all of us needed this reminder that He’s already clothed us in His righteousness.

  1. It is interesting you wrote about this today, as I have been mulling a post myself regarding the frequency of blogging. I have done 5 days a week for the first 6 months, then I dropped down to two days a week for the next 8 months……Now I am contemplating to going to a ‘blog when I have something to say’ mode. Stay tuned! and have fun with your sister next week. 🙂
