If you are new to the Word of the Month and wants to join in, welcome and read THIS for more info.
I’m always in a rush to do things because there are simply too many things to be done. However, I realized that they are all in my head! I keep asking myself, ‘why do I even have to do them in the first place?’ ‘If I die tomorrow and go home to Jesus, would they matter?’ The truth is NOBODY cares and neither will I if I were to die tomorrow! So I guess, it all comes down to my “controlling” issue and like always, I need to work on surrendering everything to God and prioritizing things in my life IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE so that I don’t drive myself or others around me crazy! This most likely means “changed priorities” for me and I’m a bit nervous…
Both fortunately and unfortunately, it’s clearly written in the Bible.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
In other words, God first and everything else next. Simple as that. Of course, God had to make it so clear that I don’t miss it or can’t pretend I didn’t see it! God, you know me too well! :-)
So, I suppose I’ll work on prioritizing my life this month of July. Yes, I have tried it before and yes, I have failed numerous times before. But clearly, I’m not perfect and there’s nothing else for me to do but keep trying. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get there someday! (*note to Hubby: I suggest that you don’t get too excited about this. Don’t expect a quick change from me plus all the honey-to-do list I give you are non-negotiable so don’t even try! *^^*)
