Last time I shared about finding time to get this kind of organizing done:
I was reading in Ecclesiastes for the past week and Solomon said it too- all we have is to eat, drink, and enjoy our labor as we fear the Lord and keep His commandments. And joy in our work comes from the Lord. It's hard, for sure, but there is enjoyment to be found in accomplishing our tasks! What a gift this life is, and what I miss out on when I think the joy is to be found after the end of what I have to do, because I'll never be done!!
There is joy in it now- seeing a toilet cleaned, cooking another meal, washing another load of clothes. Smelling the cookies being baked, getting my hands in soapy hot water, sweeping off the porch- it's all a gift if the Lord lets us enjoy our work. It's just I have to remember that instead of rushing to be done with the next thing. Life on this earth is just doing the next thing, and there will always be more to do.
Every morning I get to see the sun is a gift, and thanks to my sinful nature, a fight to see things with joy instead of wishing them over. But the Lord is good, and He thankfully overcame my sinful nature through His Son.
