BALANCE WORK AND PLAY

Many have been suffering log jam for years. Pressing through tasks that are backed up for miles, they have endeavored to move forward through the pile, only to get overloaded and then have to dump and reset all to start over.

Try changing your priorities and endeavor to bring balance to your lives through work and play. Find ways to refresh your soul, body and spirit that are away from the log jam. You will find that in the passing of time, some of what you have endeavored to press through is no longer important because the course has changed. Keep the best part and focus on bringing it to completion before building more.



Eccl 1:14 NKJV
And I set my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under heaven; this burdensome task God has given to the sons of man, by which they may be exercised . I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind.

Good morning! It seems like, to me, the Lord is saying follow the course of the river instead of trying to restore to its old path. Trust the flow for what it is.

That's a great thought Beth!  This reminds me of what Ella told me on my birthday.... you cant fix everything. 

I like to keep my house well kept.  But I do have a paper pile the piles up next to my chair.  There are things that I am not ready to throw away, use or deal with at that time.  When the pile starts blinking on my radar, I go through it.  It is amazing how much I toss because it is no longer relevant!  That's called water under the bridge.  You cant hold onto moving water.  As you said, you just can go with it flows.

Amen @Registered Member, If someone's mind is always occupied with that mentality of thinking that there's always 'one more thing that needs to be done', will never find that good balance between work and play. Their focus will always be on finding that one more thing, which always never ends there, but on to a continuous search/work for that one more thing!
