My august goals have been light and fun. I’m so grateful for giving myself a bit of a break with my to-do list. I got sick twice this month – once while on vacation. No fun. God has been teaching me to rest and abide in Him through sickness. Letting go of goals and making room for His will has been restorative. I saw His grace at work this past week; a cancelled meeting that I didn’t feel ready for, a coworker volunteering to take on one of my projects and lightening my load.
At the end of the day, He knows us best and how much we can handle. I love setting goals and will continue to do so as they push me to work hard and dream big, but I want to implement one month a year where I just set light and fun goals for myself. No goals that stress me at the thought of them not being completed. One can’t live in a constant state of hustle. It’s not sustainable. Make sure to carve some space into your life to rest in Him. This is why at the end of the month I will be going on a 3 day silent retreat. Please pray for me to be open to whatever God wants to do and teach me during this time and please let me know if I can pray for you in any specific way while I am on retreat.
