Who Is Writing Your "To Do List?"

Life can get so busy at times....this to do, and that to do. Have you ever experienced trying to complete all the tasks on your "to do list," only to discover that they are endless, and while completing them, can devour an infinite amount of your time? A whole day can literally pass while trying to accomplish  all your tasks, and you ask yourself, "where did the time go? I have so much more to do." "I feel like I haven't gotten anything done."

I have come to realize that the "to do list" will never get completed in its entirety. It is wise to simply delineate the tasks that should be completed today, and the ones that should be completed on the days that follow.  Eliminating the stress and pressure of trying to complete all the "to do list" tasks at once is freeing. More importantly, it provides room for the Lord be in the forefront of our thinking.... allowing Him to prioritize the things He wants us to do on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis.

Proverbs 16:3 says commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Many people live their lives doing what they want to do. Doing what they deem important. Even Christians do this.  On the other hand, a person that mentally prioritizes the will of Jesus in their life will find themselves traveling on "success" road as pointed out in Proverbs 16:3.  Allow Jesus to write your "to do list." Believe me! More will be accomplished in your life by executing His "to do list" verses you executing your own.
