I am staring at my calendar wondering how in the world I will get it all done. Again. My tasks seem to out number my minutes and it leaves me a little panicky.
Oh, I’ve prayed and I will continue to pray over my calendar, obligations and commitments. I will find a way and I even know that God will make a way when there seems to be none. But I’m still nervous.
Besides the laundry, groceries and cleaning, there is now homework and swim team and conference calls. I don’t want to forget my conference call again.
There are also the added duties that the Labor Day holiday brings and the birthday factor that fall brings to our family.
Can you say overwhelming? I’m trying to not say it. This morning I took it to the Lord. Yesterday in church the pastor used this verse. It spoke volumes to my chaotic, list-laden heart.
“The fear of the LORD lengthens days.” Proverbs 10:27 Living Bible
Doesn’t that create space in your life? It created a huge gap in mine. I need for my days to be lengthened on more levels than one. I’m asking God for a long life, yes, oh yes. But this week I’m asking God for long days.
I’m praying for His strength, energy and courage to tackle all that awaits. I’m asking for His perspective, provision and protection as I do it. And, I’m asking the same for you sweet sister as fall is officially under way.
So let’s take care of first things first, seek the Lord and enjoy our days. What would you do if your days were long enough?
