When you’re feeling overwhelmed by a to-do list, consider these thoughts from Emily Freeman, writing at (in)courage:
There is without question a lot to do.
But there is also an invisible world that lives inside our bodies, the inner world of the soul. And this world won’t show up in your newsfeed, it won’t get a headline on the evening news, and it won’t push a notification to your phone.
This inner world needs our attention, but it doesn’t respond to programs, agendas, or hustle.
The soul responds to space, silence, and Jesus.
In other words, sometimes we need to disconnect and do a simple practice to be able to listen to God in a new way. We may recognize this in times of formal discernment or retreat, but what about on a daily basis? Emily is trying crochet to help her; Vinita Hampton Wright colors mandalas. What methods do you use?
