Are you someone who thinks a lot about all you have to get done – this afternoon, tonight, tomorrow?
If I’m really honest with you, I often live gripped by the stress of what I have to do.
To do lists litter my life.
They are suffocating me.
Tell me I am not alone.
Right now I am sitting in a coffee shop, trying to bang out these words for you, but my mind keeps getting distracted by the items waiting for me at home, as well as what needs to be accomplished at work tomorrow.
Her words hit me to the core.
And in this season of reflection the of God of the universe coming to earth as a baby, I can’t help but be challenged to slow down and focus on what is in front of me today.
Scripture says, do not worry about tomorrow. Today has enough trouble of its own.
Will you pray with me?
Lord, we are so distracted. Help us to live focused on what you have in front of us TODAY. We want to live a life of fruit and not become destructive. Give us clarity, purpose and intention to do what it is you have for us, in this moment, today. Amen.Leave a Comment
