When you are young and broke, perhaps you fill your home with whatever furniture you can find. You move to a different place, and then a third place, and find what worked in apartment A doesn’t fit in house B. Sometimes your style changes, sometimes things break.
May we have the wisdom to deal with our schedules like we handle our furniture. That all things are not meant for longevity. That just because we always have, doesn’t mean we always have too. Just because a need is there doesn’t mean its continuously yours to meet. That death can bring space. Space needed for rest, for new seeds, for a clearer vision of the horizon .Longevity of a dream, a job, a ministry, an idea, an extra curricular does not always equal worth. some things have shorter life spans than others, and flourish in that time. Perseverance, endurance, tradition all have their place. But so should last chapters, closed books, final notes. Wise is the women who knows when the entertainment center might be a really fun shade of teal, might have cost us some money, held the tradition of being passed down, or even was made by her own two hands, but it just doesn’t fit in the space she’s been given. Wise is the women who knows to let go. - 1 hour ago
