Many times we rush into a new week after a super hectic weekend with way more on our plate than what we might have remembered being there on Friday. Most of the time, all that work stuff that we thought we would get done early Saturday morning or maybe Sunday evening gets taken over by all the other priorities of the weekend. Well, I guess that is often how I feel entering Monday morning. Is it just me?
As I enter this new week, I find that I have many competing priorities and most of them feel like they need to get done immediately. There are times when it seems that it all needs to get done, but often times I get lost in trying to make the decision of what to do first. (Guess I need to read Steven Covey’s “First Things First” again…). Yes, I know that I need to focus on the most important things and not necessarily just what seems most urgent. I sometimes however, need help knowing which is which because that often changes from week to week.
Our Lord is once again waiting and wondering why I don’t just ask Him about it. He sees the big picture as opposed to our perspective of not even seeing the next step and will most willingly be our guide if we would just submit to his leadership. Our plans should be His plans, therefore, we are most likely out of step with His will if we don’t seek Him in regards to our priorities.
Hopefully you will take some time today at the beginning of another super busy work week and step back to ask for His direction and for His clarity. As the day/week progresses this constant seeking of guidance will make a huge difference in how you get it all done this week. You will most likely look back at the end of the week and see that somehow you accomplished much more than you thought you would AND you will realize where your help came from.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need. Luke 12:31
