...you are bored.
You have heard of those parents who when hearing their kids are "bored," immediately respond by assigning the bored child some kind of a chore. Maybe you grew up in a home like that.
I don't remember experiencing boredom as a child. I have the blessing of having a sister very close in age. In our young years we were always using our imaginations in creative play, whether it was running a "restaurant," performing a two-person talent show, or making "handcrafts" that our parents felt obligated to buy from us in our little "bazaar."
I am also realizing you should not tell God you are bored. It falls in the same category as asking God for patience. :) You are bound to receive the answer to your prayers - but in unexpected ways.
Anyway, when I first came to Uganda, I had one primary job - to serve as the coordinator for the Child Development program (the ministry's sponsorship branch). But, I found myself being idle and having too much free time on my hands, which I did not like. Since then God has placed other roles and responsibilities in my arena. And I usually say, "I would rather be busy than bored." I think God heard me say that one too many times.
The Bible said God will not give us more than we can bear in terms of temptation. But I also believe that the same principle could apply to the responsibilities He gives to us. He won't give us more than we can handle - with His strength and grace to accomplish it. That is the key.
I am always mesmerized by juggling acts and have noticed that when there is more than one juggler in the act, they can handle multiple balls, even knives and other objects - more than one person could handle.
Timing and knowing your partner are crucial, otherwise you may miss a step, embarrass yourselves terribly, or worse suffer an injury.
My previous post was about not letting busyness and work come before my relationship with God. I am still learning this lesson - slowly. Again, I am grateful for God's graciousness and patience with me in this particular "classroom."
With what you are juggling today, are you in sync with your Heavenly Father?
