I'm NOT organized by nature.
It's all learned behavior... and most of the time it seems that I
haven't learned it too well, yet.
But I trudge on.
While recently praying (complaining) about
my endless "To-Do" list,
Jesus pointed out that I've wandered away from actually
making a physical "To Do List"....
it's that crazy list in my head that seems to be the only record
of what's supposed to be happening.
When I'm relying on the "brain-list,"
the jobs & chores just go round & round
in my head, and I count them over & over, getting more & upset
each time I think of them.
The Spirit gently pointed me back to my giant, red,
3-hole punch organizer/calendar that has sat, rejected, on my
desk... so close to me yet so ignored, so abandoned.
So I obeyed.
(always the BEST option!)
I made a detailed list of small, do-able tasks;
breaking down larger things into short jobs.
Planned ahead & instantly started breathing slower!
My day was crazy productive!
I did even MORE than what was listed!
Thank you, Jesus, for reminding me of what You've already
taught me to do...
and not just conking me on the head
(though I totally deserve that, too!)
How do you handle the many tasks/demands of your life?
What method has God directed you to use?
Are you actually doing it? Why? Why not?
