Too much to do?

“In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion” – Psalm 71:1.

I’ll have to admit, I seem to run in the state of confusion a good share of every week. Today is Monday and as I look at my to-do list thoughts of confusion run rampant. When and where will I fit all of this in? My desire is to be present in all the meetings, gatherings and tasks, but I sincerely doubt this goal will happen. 

November — the month I celebrate three years beyond major brain surgery. During and after the recovery time, I talked and wrote about living in the present — wherever you are, be all there. But I confess in the course of those three years, I have slacked off and not been as diligent at this practice.

Daily (and sometimes hourly) I need to place my trust in God — the one and only one who can make order come from chaos and confusion. The days I do lean on him and ask him to order my steps, things somehow miraculously get accomplished. And the things I wanted to do that maybe weren’t as important, well those items can wait until another day.

Thank you, God, for allowing me to wake up this morning. I give this entire day over to you as I release my hands from the scheduling. You know and want what’s best for me and my life. This much I do know.

Ever find yourself just going through the motions with a just-get-it-done mentality? I sure do, and I don’t like being in that mode. Can you offer your calendar up to the God of the universe and ask him to guide and bless your endeavors?
