I got a pretty obvious message from God in my morning devotions in the form of Matthew 6:33-34. It goes something like this:
"Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Heard. Understood. Acknowledged. Doesn't get much clearer than that! Isn't cool how He brings things into perspective when everything seems to be spiralling out of control? If I follow Jesus one day at a time, I will be right at the center of God's will every step of the way. Gotta get my priorities straightened out!
Alright, so last week wasn't a complete failure...but I certainly didn't get as much done as I was hoping. I don't know about you, but it seems the more I get stressed about the length of my to-do list...I get less and less done. It's unreal.
Last night I sat down and made a list, which unfortunately involves some things from last week but I've already managed to cross a bunch off this morning so I'm on a roll! Here she is:
- finish meal plan for Christmas (on New Years) with my family
***waiting to hear back from my brother how long they will be staying 'til I can finish this one**
- clean the fireplace brick - this is really not necessary but it's on my list anyway
- cut kindling and clean up carport (I'm secretly hoping hubby will see this on my list and do it for me :) Here's hoping!
If all these things get done then I'm hoping to start on some fancy pillow covers for my guest room and living room. I was hoping to have these done eons ago but I have come to terms with the fact that this REALLY isn't a priority.
EDIT: Look at all the black lines up there! I am so proud of myself - I got so much done today. I might need to make a whole new list to start tomorrow!
What's on your list this week?
