These days, when I feel overwhelmed by the day stretching before me and the never-ending list of tasks to accomplish, I practice returning to this concept:
“What does it look like to love God for the next ten minutes? What does it look like to love the person in front of me for the next ten minutes?” –Jan Johnson
I am finding so much freedom in those little questions. I don’t have to have my whole life mapped out. I don’t have to have a ten-year plan for marriage and family and ministry and career. I just have to put one foot in front of the other, do the next right thing, and love God and the people in front of me. How liberating is that?!
