Stop trying to figure EVERYTHING out.Jun 01, 2022
John 14:27 AMP - Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]
Stop trying to figure EVERYTHING out.
- your busyness is actually counter productive
- instead, for clarity and peace do this
Every morning as soon as I get up my mind is racing with my mission for the week, my to do list, my calendar, and my activity for the week.
I immediately feel the pressure of planning to get so much done.
So before I jump into action — I STOP.
I prepare for my first meeting of the day ... time with The Boss ... God.
For me, most mornings I'm up around 4a.
- make the coffee
- head to my study
- my meeting with God starts around 4:30a
- I sit down aware of being present in God's presence
With my Bible and my journal in hand, I start with a few devotionals from my favorite sources, and then dig into the Word.
When I focus on being present in His presence, His peace and clarity follow.
He settles me down and prepares me for the week.
And then as I continue to be aware of His constant presence in my life (after all, He lives inside me) we continue to talk back and forth all day long.
He has a strategic path that He Has prepared for me every week.
So I ...
- submit by plans to Him
- I align my plans with His
- I ask Him to establish my steps
And then at 6a I begin to execute what He has prepared for me to do.
But now I have clarity, focus and peace. His peace.
This is daily walking ... a closer walk with thee.
