“Why doesn’t 24 hours in a day suit our schedules? Why is a woman’s closet – no matter what size – never quite big enough to hold her attire, or the shoe shelf appropriate for her shoes, or her jewelry case adequate for hosting her bracelets and necklaces? Why isn’t the surface of our desks enough space for our paperwork? Why do we need an extra freezer in the garage or a three-tiered rack from Home Depot to hold the overflow of our canned goods? Did our homes and car trunks and drawers all get tinier over night? Did someone hold a meeting while we weren’t looking and steal four or five hours from our 24-hour days?
Or is it more probable that our spaces and hours aren’t too small, but our self-control and self-discipline are? We’ve unlearned the important, Spirit-empowered skill of saying “no,” dissatisfied with what fits within our means.” -Priscilla Shirer
