I’ve been reading the Undaunted Devotional by Christine Caine and today’s question is:

When has it felt like life turned you upside down?

Good question. My first thought is, losing my job made me feel like my life was turned upside down. I’ve never lost a job before. Being laid off is not fun. But oddly enough, I also felt like my life was being turned right side up at the same time.

I would describe myself as a worker bee. I think it’s in my blood. I like to work. However, as I get older, I’m slowly realizing what a toll it can take. Not slowing down. Not taking care of myself. Not finding balance with work and life.  I’ve put a lot of my self-worth in what I do and how I do it. God is breaking this thought pattern…and I’m grateful for that.
