What I Learned: March 2016

It’s so cliche but I really cannot believe we are 1/4 of the way through 2016! I’ve stayed busy with work and classwork and I guess I haven’t paid much attention.

I spent some time this morning looking over my quarterly goals from January to March.  Some were accomplished, but most were not.  As always, I did a better job meeting my external goals than internal ones.

For the second quarter of the year, I plan to focus on these internally centered goals: health and rest.  I listened to a sermon a few weeks ago about the importance of Sabbath rest.  It is a commandment, but I know I don’t heed it the way I do the others.  Intentional rest is an outside sign of trust…trust that the Father will take care of His child.


Here are a few other lessons I learned this March.

  1. Taking two classes at once was a big mistake.  By the grace of God, I am getting through it, but May 31 cannot come soon enough.  I finished one class on March 21, but another one start the 28th, so I will finish 3 this semester.
  2. Academic writing is HARD! This is a result of #1.  One of my classes is killing me.  I haven’t had to write in APA format for years.
  3. Fellowship brings life.  I started attending a new small group in February and it has been a joy.  I am so thankful.
  4. I tend to make life decisions out of fear.  This could be its own post but for now, I will just leave it here.  I don’t like this about myself. I think it is a big reason why I have trouble finding rest.
