My friend Vicki posted the following thoughts on her blog recently. Check out her site here.
It's been said that only God is able to cross off everything on His "to-do" list. Guess the rest of us might as well hang it up:-)
Sometimes He shows me how ridiculous my list has grown, only to tear it up and whisper a reminder: Abide. That's all He asks. 'Tis this abiding I need to even know His will; the rest will follow. Playing beat-the-clock in my own flesh is stressful, but learning to move according to His enablement brings peace.
Bonus: It's way more productive to do His will rather than mine. Perfectionism never wins brownie points with God anyway.
