Don’t Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

Have you ever gone out to eat or maybe at home that you were so hungry or maybe in a rush that you just started consuming your food to the point that you could hardly chew your food or you almost choked yourself to death because you had a mouth full of food. Sometimes this will cause us not to even chew our food properly and just inhale it which isn’t good for our digestive system and could cause problems in the long run. How many times in life have we taken in more than we can chew? Was it to prove that we could or to please some one else? Even if we are capable of doing it doesn’t necessarily mean that we are supposed to be. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the “work” that we become so far removed from what God has called us to do. When was the last time we consulted God about what we are supposed to be doing. There were many times I would find myself right in the middle of a task(s) and realized it was too much, why am I doing this or should I really be. After a period of time I felt overwhelmed, frustrated or burnt out to the point that when it came time for me to do the thing(s) that I was called to do I had no strength. If you take on more than you are able to handle something is bound to be overlooked, missed or neglected. Perfect that one thing with diligence and with excellence until you are able to manage more. Finish and complete the task at hand.
Colossians 3:23-24 #CLEANTHISHOUSE
