“THE Problem of Busyness” by Author Eugenia Price
Most people are just too busy. This is a point for quick agreement, but the subtle danger involved in our busyness is that most of us never stop to realize that in most cases we can do something about it! We tend to look wildly and never unrealistically in any other direction for the cause of our trouble. Most of us feel like helpless victim where our work and activity schedules are concerned. For five or six years, this was entirely true of me.
Then one day when I had actually fallen to sleep on someone’s sofa in the middle of a conversation, I began to take stock. What was actually important ? How much of this activity was God actually instigating ? How much of it was the consequence of my own bad judgement , and how much was guided by the Holy Spirit within me? What was really gained that evening I fell asleep doing what to me was no longer “sweet fellowship ” ?
A woman’s ego often pushes her into a whirlwind life of business., too. If you are capable, and if the ladies adore you and keep compliments on your pretty head every time you teach the class or preside at the circle meeting, just be be wary. It is easy to mistake the voice of flattery for the voice of God. Especially if you’ve been busy for so long, there hasn’t been a really quit time to hear God speak .
The voice of God is always speaking to us and always trying to get our attention. But his voice is a “still small voice” and we must at least slow down in order to listen.
