It means, more to do, places to go, people to see, and so much more…
Even if you are stuck in the house on a Monday, there is a lot going on in your mind…
I say this, because I know.
I used to have headaches because I had so much to do or that I wanted to do.
I was thinking about so much stuff, that my brain was cluttered with all of my todo’s.
Then I read
Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Proverbs 16:9 The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.
I had so much going on in my mind…I longed for peace. I wanted to trust God. I wanted to submit to Him. I wanted to all that He had to offer, but I could not figure out where to start.
I’ve been a writer all of my life. Since I was in kindergarten, I’ve written things down.
Yet at this point in my life, when I was so frustrated and confused, I had stopped doing what I loved.
I wrote when I had to, but when I needed and wanted to, I just wouldn’t.
After reading these scriptures and asking God to help me, I began to desire to get organized. I looked high and low for the answers…not knowing what to do, I started writing again. Not stories or anything, just lists.
I made so many lists…looking back, I laugh now, but making those lists, began to empty out my brain.
The more I wrote down my ‘to do’s’ the more I felt relief. I would write my list and ask God to help me accomplish what He had for me.
Shortly after my season of lists, I came across the Franklin Covey planner.
I followed the steps outlined in the starter pack and before I knew it, I was getting it together.
I had a purpose and mission statement. I had life goals and my mind felt free.
Now, here I am today…I use my planner, lists, and I’m pretty organized…although the we could all use some improvement…I’m happy with my organizational skills.
I’ve had a lot of women, over the past few months, tell me that they are not organized and wished that they were.
Let me say this…You can be free too! You can be organized! You can get it together!
For the rest of this week, I will be posting tips on how you can get it together, by organizing your mind and life…Your assignment for today is to read over the scriptures that I mentioned above.
After you have read these scriptures, write out what each one makes you think of. Write the directions that God is giving you through each scripture
Pray, out loud, that God would help you do His will, trust Him, and hear Him, as you take this journey.
Finally…Rest in Him
Join me here tomorrow, as I offer you the tools and tips needed to get it together…
