At my paying job, I work 2 days a week and have now for several years. I have been a dental hygienist for 34 years now…4 of those not working at all as I took time off for a baby one year and some moves to different states requiring time to get a new license to practice, and some time off during my “baby’s” high school years to devote to her. I have worked most those years part-time except for a few years when I became a single parent–and that’s a whole testimony on how God provided full time work just as I needed it!. I don’t struggle with the amount of time given to my “paid job” but with the amount of time I give to my church. There have been times that I lost balance and became burned out ‘doing God’s work’. God has blessed me with numerous gifts and talents…but I am having to learn to develop others in the church.
