Stop Watching & Start Living

Sometimes we spend so much time looking at what others are doing that we never get to the “living” ourselves.

How’s your week going, Mama? Are you living the life you’re called to, or are you watching others live theirs while you scroll and wish things were different?

Here’s a gentle nudge to start living this week. Put down the phone and pick up a broom or vacuum. Turn off the tv and turn on the washing machine or dishwasher. Mute the podcast and tune in to your kids voices.

Take out that book you’ve been meaning to read, or sit in silence and ask your Father what His priorities are for you this week. Close Facebook and open up the windows—or better yet, stand outside for 5 minutes and just stretch and breathe.

Life doesn’t happen in the watching—it happens in the living. Take one small step today to live more and watch less.
