Slow Down, Amanda
Right now God is doing amazing things in your life. You are so blessed, you really am. But more often than not you are also very prone to being overwhelmed by the busyness of it all.
In those frazzled moments when you're tired, irritable, and just plain run down you often think to myself (and aloud to anyone who just so happens to be standing near you at the time) that if you just have more hours during the day then your life would be so much easier. But that's not true, not at all. Amanda, you just need to make sure that you are spending time with the source. You need to be refilled and encouraged every single day. You need Jesus. You need to fill up on Him and His words or you're left empty and burnt out. There is a distinct difference in yourself on the days where you place myself in His presence compared to the days where you struggle though, trying to forge your own path.
When you stop stressing over fitting all of the ins and outs of your life into your calendar and really slow down to see the quiet moments of your heart, that's when you'll feel like you're really living. Be amazed with all that surrounds you and be thankful for each and every moment given to you. And really start to live them, taking time to stop and smell the roses.
