A Different Perspective - August 14

‘To Do' List 

by Berni Dymet

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Maybe it's just me, but I've always had more things on my "to-do" list than I have time available actually to do them all. 

Now I've tried every which way I know how to manage them.

A diary, a handwritten page divided up into sections for different categories of tasks. And these days, a sophisticated task management application that synchronises between my laptop and mobile phone.

But I still have more than I can do.

And so, strange as it may sound, the way I figure this all out is that early each morning, I sit and pray. I say "God - which ones do you want me to do today". 

It's kind of weird.  But actually, it works. Because what happens is that I end up doing things according to His priorities and not mine. And that means that the things I'm doing today, are actually fitting in with His plan.

Pretty obvious really. So why did it take me so long to figure it out?
