Schedule and Priorities

The following is today's devotional from Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

“They want me to help decorate the church Saturday night, but I can’t even get my own house straightened up! What should I do?”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: There are a lot of books and seminars on time management, but the best counsel comes from God Himself. I’m learning to submit my calendar and daily schedule to the Lord to seek His will for my priorities.

When interruptions come, I ask Him for wisdom to know whether they’re from Him or whether I should avoid them as unnecessary distractions. I try to remember Proverbs 16:3: “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”

There will probably never be enough time in a day for you to finish your whole to-do list. There definitely won’t be time for you to do everything everybody else wants you to do. But there will always be enough time for you to do everything on God’s to-do list for your day. When is the last time you asked for His direction?

Hi Caryn,

Go to Settings on your dashboard, then to Publishing, and you can change the name there. I didnt lose anything but the links on my front page that I had of the blogs I kept track of. Yours included. :) So I had to google some of them because I didnt know the address by heart and put them back on my blog again. Other than that...everything stayed.
