I spent time at the end of choir rehearsal last night reminding the choir that this time of year (mid-February to mid-April) is when corporations and companies really push their people hard. The church ramps everything up, too. It’s much like November and December, where you start to feel the pressure of work, church and home. I took a moment to offer them some heartfelt encouragement. To calm them and let them know that they are truly appreciated and that we area all pushing ourselves very hard. But, at the end of the day, whether we are talking about ministry in the workplace or standing in the choir loft, they touch people’s lives.
Today, I think I should have added: and, that’s why God has us so busy . . . because we are VERY effective at being the hands and feet . . . and God knows it.
I’m going to pray about this tonight. You should, too. Pray that God uses your busy-ness not to glorify you or to see how many activities you can get done, but that quietly, in your chaos, God uses you to get God’s things done.
That’s glory in the busy.
