It seems like I’m always diving into something head first before I realize what I have gotten myself into. I think that is actually a pretty good description of how the year of 2012 went for me.
Sometimes diving into something with your whole heart and all your energy is a good thing though. Like your relationship with God, involvement in your church and Christian community, helping others who are in need. If what you are diving into doesn’t align with God’s purpose for your life though you could end up drowning.
This year I want to make sure I am making the right choices when it comes to what I dive into. I am trying to think and pray more before jumping and doing. I am trying to weigh the pros and cons and decide if whatever I am about to commit to is actually aligned with my goals and purposes.
It is hard for me to say no, it is hard for me to deal with the fear of disappointing people. It is hard for me to admit that I can’t do it all.
I have to remember that I have to say no to the good things so that I am able to say yes to the great things. Most of all I need to be sure whatever I’m diving into is what/where God wants me to go. Otherwise I may end up in the wrong place at the wrong time and be “up a creek without a paddle” as we say here in the south.
