    The reason you’re on overload is you are trying to control too much. You think it all depends on you. “If it’s to be, it’s up to me. I’ve got to hold it all together. I’ve got to make it all work.”

    When you’re stressed out, how do you typically unwind? How do you de-stress when you’re exhausted and overloaded? Maybe you go to a movie or out to dinner so you don’t have to cook. Or maybe you have a hobby or a sport that helps you unwind.

    The second truth you need to remember if you want to reduce the stress and overload in your life is this: The best expression of love is time. You spell love T-I-M-E. The Bible says in 1 John 3:18, “We must show love through actions that are sincere, not through empty words” (GW).

    10-10-16-Life-Meant-To-Live-Do-Less-And-Trust-God-More

    The last step to building more margin in your life is to do less and trust God more. Why should you do that? Because God can do more in 20 minutes than you can do in 20 years.

  • You Can Accomplish More By Doing Less

    If you want margin in your life, you must periodically prune your activities. One of the things I do to relax is grow roses. I’ve learned that if I want to have any roses in the new season, I have to prune them back, usually around the third week of January. One year when I got ready to prune, there were still lots of branches with buds waiting to blossom. Do you know how difficult it is to cut off a rose that hasn’t bloomed yet? It kills me to do that.

    10-08-16-Life-Meant-To-Live-Margin-Helps-You-Plan-For-Problems

    We need margin in our lives, because it’s inevitable that we’re going to have problems in life. Plans are good. The Bible says we ought to plan, and planning helps lead you in the right direction. But nothing ever goes as perfectly as planned, so you’re setting yourself up for big disappointment when you don’t prepare for bumps in the road.

    If you want to build margin in your life so that you can do the work God meant for you to do, you have to remember that you are only human. You are not a god. You are not invincible. You are just a human being. You have limits!
