To-Do List

Grocery shopping. Pay bills. School drop-off/pick-up. After school activities. Make appointments. Cancel appointments. Paperwork. Prepare dinner. Laundry. Clean house. Take car for service. …..and the list can goes on and on.

You know. That dreaded ‘To-Do’ list.

 Some days the to-do list can seem endless. And many times, we allow ourselves to be obsessed with the idea that the list must be completed by the end of the day. As a result, we become very overwhelmed and weary, inhibiting our accomplishments. While some of the items are on a deadline, many are not. So why get so frustrated over the small details?
 In the grand scheme of life, the frustrations of our day-to-day responsibilities are mere trifles. Jesus told us not to worry about anything; reminding us that if God would take care of the grass in the field, He will surely take care of us!
So, let’s re-arrange our to-do list.
         #1. Put our faith in God and allow Him in every part of our lives.
         #2. Thank God for the blessings of our lives.
         #3. Invite God into the small details of our lives.
         #4. Do not be anxious.
         #5. Enjoy new daily blessings and successes.

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. – Matthew 6:30-34
