Seasonal Activities

I began a new season in my life about 5 months ago and I went from being a stay-at-home mom who worked occasionally throughout the week, to being a work-at-home mom.  Meaning I started working daily with my kids at home with me.  It was a hard transition and still continues to be something that I'm still getting use to.  I have had to let alot of things slide around my home and with my children in order to work from home on a regular basis.  Honestly, I never thought I would make business I priority over my more domestic duties.  But here I am.  I have struggled with guilt, but I have come to realize a couple things.

1.  I know for a fact if God wasn't the One propelling me, I would not have been able to commit to working from home.

2.  Even if I was to try to stay on top of the things that I was letting slide, I would get nowhere because it is not the season for me to be focused on those things

3.  You have to allow God to develop the "whole person" not just certain aspects of you.  We are all multi-faceted human beings.  God does not just desire to develop one area of your life and leave the rest alone.  He wants you to be fully developed and "whole".  Who doesn't want you living in a way where you are not complete

Ecclesiastes 3:3 (NIV
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.

"A season for every activity under heaven".  At any given time in life, we can be flooded with a flurry of activity.  However. our question for God should be which activities are for this season that I'm in?  Then focus on those.
