I got out of bed this morning at 5:30am to retrieve my HMB from my desk. I had so many plans swirling around in my head as to how I would plan out my families day.
Usually if I don’t write these thoughts down and filter out the unnecessary activities I end my day feeling as though I didn’t accomplish much.
So after I got all of my thoughts written out on paper I had a total of three list. I had a TO-DO, SCHOOL and a list with TODAY’S MENU.
The next thing that I did was begin my devotional. Today’s verse came from Romans 6:15-23 which reminded me that I am going to be a slave one way or another, either to sin or to righteousness.
I choose the righteousness of God. And if God and His righteousness is my master then I turn to my Master with my three list and ask “Is this what you will have me to do today?”. And I wait patiently for His response.
I wait for a confirmation of some sort…chirping birds…a feeling of peace or perhaps an urge to read a particular scripture verse. I wait with anticipation because I don’t want to miss out on what God wants for me by making my days into a repetitive routine. There has to be a purpose in the things that I do which is to demonstrate the glory of God to those who are watching me.
I pray that the time that I devote today to each of the following activities may be used not just to complete a task, but to serve the greater purpose in fulfilling the perfect will of God.
Psalm 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.
