What to do when you don't know what to do

J U L Y 13th 
I'm blogging everyday for the month of July, sharing what I learn about what it means to be a steward of time. Time is so precious. This series is a personal experiment where I hope to get a better look into where I invest my time, and how I can better shape my life to serve God through my actions, words, and priorities. Look up the tag "July series" to view each post. 

Much studying for physics and calculus featuring the new and already very loved white board! 
A work shift in the evening 
Planning my fall schedule 

Rest & Enjoyment:
Reading Monday Mornings with a lunch of hummus and veggies and two fried eggs. So yum.
Reading the book of James
Taking a walk through the backyard and finding blueberries ripening and a beautiful lily growing. 
Having a taste of a dark chocolate bar purchased at my favorite coffee shop yesterday... :) 

Take aways: 

A few weeks ago I had "finalized" my schedule for the fall. Haha, well! Today I received an email about a new opportunity that has me really excited. The dilemma? Time. Sometimes I set out a schedule and have to ask myself "do you REALLY want to do that to yourself for a semester?!" My usual retort is one of either "no, I shouldn't take on so much" or in contrast "come on! It's just three months! you're a big girl. you can handle it." If you didn't know, myself and I chat pretty frequently. The email is still unanswered as I think hard about this. To commit or not commit. 

And then I realized I hadn't asked God. 

Whenever I have a dilemma of whether or not I should do something, there is only one thing to do. Seek God, seek His will, ask: Lord, is this opportunity really for me? Is it from you, or is it a distraction that will keep me from accomplishing what you have for me? I'm going to keep pressing towards Him until I have peace about a decision. And in the meantime? Let the peace of Christ dwell in me richly, not worrying or carrying this burden. He's got it. :) 

Much love, Vivi
