“Full Busy vs. Empty Busy” by Glynnis Whitwer and “Do Everything” by Steven Curtis Chapman

I’ve been receiving Proverbs 31’s daily devotionals for women  for some time now. They’ve been a regular source of encouragement, edification, and rebuke always at just the time I need them.

Have you ever felt so busy and yet so under accomplished at the same time? Ever felt like you were a hamster on a wheel, running and running yet going nowhere? Well, you’re not alone.

Check out Glynnis Whitwer’s recent devotional called “Full Busy vs. Empty Busy.” It was a real encouragement to me and I hope it will be to all you busy women out there too. And if you like that, check out Glynnis’ blog or sign up for P31’s daily email devotionals.

In closing, here’s a song I heard on the radio the other day that might also be an encouragement: Steven Curtis Chapman’s “Everything You Do” (lyrics below).

“You’re picking up toys on the living room floor
For the 15th time today, 
Matching up socks,
Sweeping up lost Cheerios that got away.
You put a baby on your hip,
Color on your lips, and head out the door.
And while I may not know you,
I bet I know you wonder sometimes,
‘Does it matter at all?’
Well, let me remind you,
‘It all matters just as long as you do
Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you,
‘Cause He made you to do every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
In every little thing you do.’
 
“Maybe you’re that guy with the suit and tie;
Maybe your shirt says your name.
You may be hooking up mergers, cooking up burgers,
But at the end of the day,
Little stuff, big stuff, in-between stuff,
God sees it all the same,
And while I may not know you,
I bet I know you wonder sometimes,
‘Does it matter at all?’
Well, let me remind you,
‘It all matters just as long as you do
Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you,
‘Cause He made you to do every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
In every thing that you do.’
 
“Well, maybe you’re sitting in math class, 
Or maybe on a mission in the Congo,
Maybe you’re working at the office,
Singing along with the radio,
Maybe you’re dining at a five star,
Or feeding orphans in Myanmar,
Anywhere and everywhere that you are, 
Whatever you do, it all matters.
So do what you do and don’t ever forget to do…
Everything you do to the glory of the One who made you,
‘Cause He made you to do every little thing that you do
To bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace…
With every move that you make
In every little thing you do.’
