Confession: I'm no good at juggling. Though I'm not a circus employee, I can relate to the clown in this painting: I'm attempting to do entirely too much. My life feels out of balance, unproductive and just plain off--and something has to give.
Over the past several months, I began to feel overwhelmed keeping up with blogging and Twitter. Part of the reason is you--you are all so interesting and wonderful. (I'm not entirely to blame here.*grin*) Unfortunately, while I love the connections I'm making with everyone, my writing is suffering because of it.
I'm well aware that some people are excellent multi-taskers, but I'm not one of them. I can only do so much and still do it well.
Though I limit myself to writing only one blog post per week, it's abundantly clear that I need a break. So, I'm taking a blogging and Twitter hiatus, effective immediately. I'm not sure how long my break will last, but I'm hopeful that God will:
Refresh and revive my heart
Restore the joy of writing
Reinstate my focus
And anything else He deems necessary
My heart's desire is to be productive for the Lord. Acts 20:24 says it all: "But my life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus..." But to do that, first I need to do this. Thank you for understanding.
In the meantime, may God bless you exceedingly above all you've dared to ask, think or imagine.
Hope to see you soon,
P.S. If you are a Word Chick, know that my prayers for you will continue.
