Could our busy schedules be keeping us from embracing the new that the Lord is attempting to do in our lives? Are we so focused on our own agenda’s that we are failing to see the things that he is doing before our eyes? Although I cannot speak for you guys, I, for one, can see where this has been the case in my own life.
As a planner, I generally have my days planned out in advance. From the time that I wake up until I go to bed, I have a To-Do list of task that I check off each day. This combined with daily disciplines that I rarely veer from, like going to the gym help me to stay focused, be productive and achieve goals. This routine all started when my children were younger. During that time, I was working long hours and trying desperately to be the best wife and mother I could be. In order to do that, I woke up extra early and worked from a To-Do list that prioritized things that were important me. I didn’t want to jeopardize my family and their needs for the sake of building a career.
That said, over the years I have grown more and more dependent on my To-Do list. Because of this, I often have to step back , regroup and remind myself not to be so laser focused on the task at hand, that I miss the things that the Lord is doing in my life. After all, our journey here on earth is all about him and his plan for us, right?
So, what about you? Is it possible that your schedule could be keeping you from seeing and experiencing the things that the Lord is trying to do in your life? If so, are you willing to forgo somethings throughout your day in order to embrace it? I sure hope so. For he is doing new thing, my friends! Let’s dare not miss it!
