CONFESSION #18: I often use my art as an excuse for my busyness.
I recently read a book that has rocked the way I think about busyness and rest. You might have heard of it. It's called Crazy Busy by Kevin DeYoung, and it hits right at the heart of the busy person.
I am a busy person. Ask any of my friends or family. If you ask me on any given day how I'm doing, my answer will probably be, "Busy". I live a busy life. Somehow it just happens.
But I often use my busyness as an excuse. I use it as an excuse for not spending time with God. I use it as an excuse for not making enough time for people that are priorities in my life. I use it as an excuse for not getting enough rest. How are you tempted to use busyness as an excuse?
So for today's Saturday Book Review Day, I decided to talk about Crazy Busy. It's tagline is a "mercifully short book for a really big problem," and it hits the mark. It's a pretty short book, but it hits the idol of busyness straight on the head.
This book convicted and encouraged me in my own struggles with busyness. If you struggle with busyness, I encourage you to check it out!
