#write31days: Day 30 – Refine

I like efficiency.

Like, for real. I would almost go so far as to say that I crave efficiency. It drives me nuts when things feel chaotic or messy and when processes are clunky and slow.

As such, I’m constantly refining how things work. Especially in my job where there are many moving pieces and all of them are important to making the whole academic division run. I do my best to tweak the processes that are in place with the intent of helping them run smoother and/or quicker. Sometimes, though, I try to refine things that aren’t going to benefit from the time and energy that I’m putting into it. The process is as clean, smooth and fluid as it’s going to get.

I do this with myself, as well. I’m not very good at refining myself because I don’t always know where my messiness lies. In fact, I should rely on the Lord to refine me. And, more and more these days, I think I’m doing that. It isn’t always pretty and I’m not always the best sport during the refining process but it’s worth it. I’d rather let Him do it than try to figure it out on my own. It’s more efficient that way. And, to top it all off, I know that the refining that He’s chosen to do is what actually needed to be done.
