KidzView | November

KidzView LogoIs it really November already?! Seems like the kids just went back to school and the weather was scorching hot.  Time flies when we’re busy, doesn’t it?

“Being busy” is something I have been struggling with lately.  I’m sure most of you can relate.  Being mom, wife, friend, KidzView Director, volunteer at school, and Life Group/Bible study participant can feel like running a marathon at times.  It’s easy to try to do life all on my own, put my head down, and run through each day checking off tasks as I go.  However, that’s not how God designed us to live.  The Bible tells us to “bear one another’s burdens”, “love our neighbors”, and “be a part of the body of Christ”.  I can’t do any of these things by myself, they all take community.

Lately, I’ve tried to stop, take a breath, and pray as I feel my “busyness” overwhelming me.  God has been showing me that turning to Him, my husband, my friends, and my coworkers for help, prayer, and wisdom is not a sign of weakness but a sign of trust. To put my pride aside and be reminded that God, not me, is the One in control, allows me to rest, lay work aside to play a game with my kids, have a good long talk with my husband, or go to Starbucks with a friend.  Yes, God has given me lots of roles and jobs, but by letting Him lead me through the busy times, I have time to enjoy the other things in life that He has blessed me with.

What about you?  Do you need to stop, take a breath, and ask God what He really wants you to be doing instead of just plowing through life, day after day?  Maybe it’s taking a little more time to spend with your family…  To give you ideas on how to do that, I’ve reworked our Family Time pages.

Your KidzView kiddos will receive a Family Time page each Sunday.  A link to each one is also below.  Take time out of your busy schedule and get to know your kids and your Creator even better!
