Just do LESS!

Why in this beautiful country are we so into compartmentalizing life? We definitely have a works mentality when it comes to many things. It seems that since one now very famous shoe company coined the term "Just Do It", America has never stopped running (I might not have this blog if that was literally the case:) In John 15:1-17 it states that God "prunes" us to make us better. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be more fruitful. God wants us to do less, and be more. In other words, always consider quality over quantity. Unfortunately we have the equation all wrong in this country. We wake up at the latest possible minute from a night of little to no sleep, get dressed as quickly as possible, hop in car to grab a donut and coffee for breakfast to "pep" us up. To fuel the fire even more, we are overly stressed at our jobs, working long hours and come home to eat dinner standing over the sink. Now where in that was our reflection time? our time to send gratitude to our Lord? our time to take care of our bodies? you get the point. Lets get back to our roots. Its time to wake up and just be. Jesus said, Be in me! Be like me! Just be...
