Is It Worth It?

Sometimes I get overwhelmed with life. 
Sometimes there seems to be tons of things to do and no time to do them. 
There is always something:
work, friends, family, me, extra circular activities, volunteering....
When will it ever stop?
Is all the hustle and bustle worth it?
I stop to wonder and then something happens....
A kid that is struggling decides to make a change,
a parent of hard headed kid says they won't give up,
a friend that has been prayed over for 25 years gives her life to the Lord,
someone thanks you for all the hard work and dedication you put into your job, 
or you hold a new born that is only weeks old....
and then I know that it is all worth it. 
God has it all under control, 
and he has a plan. 

Through HIM all things were made; 
without him nothing was made that has been made.
In HIM was life, 
and that life was the light of all mankind.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:3-5 NIV
