I am and have always been a planner, someone who feels so much peace with making a checklist and being able to check things off. I love strategically controlling each item and knowing exactly when I can check it off and what I need to do next.
With that being said, I allow for my list to always be full. You see, this “to-do list” is never-ending. One moment you finally accomplished everything and the next you have a million more things thrown at you. These lists can become so exhausting that it becomes so challenging to get everything done. This confusing constant cycle makes us unsure of our purpose and where our life is headed. As the list builds, so does the pressure weighing down on us, so we prioritize what we think is important.
We prioritize things like homework, essays, tests, work, etc. above the most important thing: God.
“I want to be a woman who trusts God has a plan even when I don’t understand.”
Something I want to work on is putting God first on my list of things to do. I often become so obsessed with the “stuff” going on in my life that I push God that I push him lower and lower on my list. Some days he doesn’t even make the list. What I got from this quote is that God is so much more important than the things going on in our lives. God is the ultimate planner, he knows everything going on in your life and he knows exactly where your path is headed. Devoting time to God will make this path more clear, and you’ll be amazed at how this to-do list becomes easier.
God is our to-do list. He puts every single thing on there and he is challenging you to put him first. If you put your faith in him he will reveal all of his plans for you in time. Even though it may not make sense now, understand that he will show you what is really important on your list and lead you to a better life.
