Years ago when I was struggling with my overwhelming schedule, I told God I simply could not do everything. Expecting some sympathy from God, I was surprised when He lovingly gave me this reply: “MaryAnn, you always have enough time to do what I have called you to do.”
WOW! Since God is never wrong, I came to two possible conclusions:
1) I was disorganized or
2) I was involved in some good activities that God had not called me to do.
In my case, it was the latter. I was involved in several church ministries to which God had not called me. Moreover, I was robbing those who were called to those ministries from doing what God had called them to do.
So I resigned from those activities in order to pursue what God had called me to do, and that was to write. Once I eliminated those activities to which I was not called, I had time to devote to the writing ministry to which I was called.
What about you? Are you struggling with making time to write? If so, is there something you can eliminate from your life in order to write?
