To Do or Not To Do-That Is the Question
Is your "to do" list longer than your leg? Mine is, and I have long legs! But I want to encourage you to learn to seek a simpler life. Less cluttered, less Facebook, less lost time in digital world. We need you alive and well, here in the present.
I don't know about you, but I find a more uninterrupted communication with God smooths the way. Take each day as it comes, but look for God in the midst of it all. Talk with Him about everything as you go through the day. Heck, the rest of the world is out there talking to themselves, you can too!
The best thing is to stop trying to fix everything around you. Let God do that, it's like His area of expertise, not yours. Don't let that "to do" list drown you each day. Rather, let God guide you. I don't mean that you don't plan anything...go ahead and plan, but be willing to have it change.
That unexpected phone call, that unplanned visit...on and on, can cause you stress, for sure. I saw something someone wrote one time, and it still applies to me and maybe you, today:
I tend to approach life as a sequence rather than a series of moments. I schedule my time, set goals, and march onward toward their achievement. Phone calls or any unscheduled event, I view as a jarring interruption. How different from the style of Jesus, who often let other people-interruptions-determine His daily schedule.
Again, don't get me wrong...planning, goals, achievement are all good...just don't let them be your god!! Let your day be more of a flow, a flow in and by the Spirit of God.
Told you this was a tough workout. Suck it up, Buttercup...get going.
