I've been feeling rather unsettled lately. Nothing terrible - just a faint hint of anxiety that follows me around. I have been trying to determine the cause, with limited success. I do have quite a bit going on, but no single event brings me too much anxiety. I actually have less going on in some ways than I did a month ago. So I don't think it is workload.
Then I began to wonder if it is how I am prioritizing my workload. I don't really have a plan for it. I have things I do on different days, but no schedule for the time I am not busy. So I've started looking into what God might have to say about a schedule. I found the following links helpful:
Are You Too Busy for God?
Admitting that I can't do it all...or even half of it
Unfortunately, none gave me really specific, hard and fast rules to follow. I am certain though that this is part of the problem after reading the first link, as he quotes from Haggai about the effect of being too busy for God:
Hag 1:6 You have sown much, and harvested little; you eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; and he who earns wages earns wages to put them into a bag with holes.
Well, not exactly, but that would produce the same anxiety.
Is anxiety a problem? Yes. We are told not to be anxious.
If anyone has any good Godly scheduling suggestions, please let me know. :)
