It’s a new week. A week that will be filled with its own challenges. A week with so much to do and so little time. I am sure you can relate.
Sometimes life runs away with us. We start fretting about all the things we have to do, all the things we have to remember, the calls we have to make, the stuff we have to buy etc. We have to juggle children, school activities, work activities, domestic issues and still find time for ourselves. And somewhere in the disorder of our fast-paced lives, we lose sight of God. And life just becomes faster and more disorderly. Many people can’t handle the pace; it leads to feelings of failure and ultimately depression. All because we lost our focus.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Stop for a moment, before this Monday runs away with you. For a few minutes…
Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of this earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace
Beautiful old song. Stop and pray for just a few minutes. Ask God to order this day for you. Ask God to order this week for you. Ask Him for wisdom and insight. Ask Him to direct your path this week. I guarantee you, it will be a good week if you lean not on your own understanding!
