You Might Be An Overachiever If ...

I know, I'm telling my age with this throwback to Jeff Foxworthy!

As Christians, we often hear that we have to "learn to say 'no'," we need to take a look at our lives and make sure we're not over doing it.  {c'mon, stay with me here}  We need to "be still" and not be so busy.

Wait for it, wait for it!

Okay, but what if we've done that and we're STILL busy?  What if the things that are keeping us busy are the things of God, the things He has called us to do?  What if we don't feel like overachievers, but the people around us call us overachievers?

Let me put it out there.

Just because the things we are called to do keep us busy - and sometimes, physically exhausted - doesn't mean we shouldn't be doing them!!

If the Lord called you to do something, if He fills your cup, if He blesses you in the doing, if He gives you strength to endure, then you had better be doing it!

If you don't it is SIN!  If you don't He doesn't fill your cup.  He doesn't bless you.  He doesn't give you strength to endure.  Most importantly, if you don't, it could cause someone to falter on their path or even worse - not to know God's unending love and provision!!

I'm sure the Proverbs 31 woman was called an overachiever.  I feel certain that Mary AND Martha were too!

God called us all to live B-O-L-D-L-Y!  To be in this world and not of it.  He called us to live in a way that points others to Him.

So, the next time someone stops you and says, "I don't know how you do it!"  Just smile, point to Heaven and simply say, "He fills my cup!"
