I have come to realize, once again, just how efficient I am at being inefficient. I would give examples, but I'm writing on my blog which is example enough. God has really been putting His finger on the issue of our time is spent, but for some reason, I just don't seem to get it to the point of action - sigh, like with so many other things. Like Paul, I identify with the battle between the flesh and spirit. I know that it's not worth it, the tiniest of silly things that so often win my attention, but I just can't seem to kick them to the curb. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I don't have a strong enough desire to let go of the gravel and grasp the diamonds that are in front of me. I am grateful that God is gracious and remembers that I am dust, but treats me like the daughter that He's making me to be. I would be awfully frustrated if I were Him, so I'm glad that I'm not. His grace is sufficient, if only I weren't so stubborn, I could enjoy it a little more.
