Your Choices Control Your Calendar
By Rick Warren
“We are each responsible for our own conduct”
Your choices are far more powerful than your circumstances. You may not like how complicated your life has become. But with few exceptions, no one is forcing you to keep your life complicated.
You have the power to simplify your life. In fact, God expects us to assume responsibility for our lives and to carefully choose how we spend our time.
You have just enough time to do God’s will while you’re here on Earth. You’ve been given just enough time to fulfill your purpose. When you try to do more than God planned for you, it’s only natural that you will find yourself constantly out of time or stressed over your schedule.
My prayer for you is that you will find relief from stress and a new sense of satisfaction as you do only the things God created you to do.
Talk It Over
- Make a list of the activities and responsibilities that are causing you stress. Ask God to help you determine the things on your schedule that he never intended for you to do.
- Where do you believe God wants you to focus your time and energy?
- What choices do you need to make that will help you focus more on what God has planned for you?
