Every Monday seems the same. It seems the to-do list is overwhelming. Things I need to catch up on from the weekend, and also things I need to prepare for the week ahead. While doing my devotions, I ran across this quote from Elisabeth Elliott:
Title: Time for God's Will
Author: Elisabeth Elliot
One reason we are so harried and hurried is that we make yesterday and tomorrow our business, when all that legitimately concerns us is today. If we really have too much to do, there are some items on the agenda which God did not put there. Let us submit the list to Him and ask Him to indicate which items we must delete. There is always time to do the will of God. If we are too busy to do that, we are too busy.
Lord, help me to take your yoke on my shoulder, not a yoke of my own making. May I learn from You to be gentle and humblehearted. May I find that your load is light.
I think the highlighted section above is sooooo important! How many things do I put on my list that God never wanted me to do in the first place. May God show me what is truly His agenda for my day!!
Resting in Him,
