….I surely want to be a woman who chooses wisely and plans well.
I cam across this very interesting and motivating post on the Proverbs 31 Ministries Facebook page this morning. Be blessed!
“Maybe like me you sometimes include too many things in your schedule. Sure, we have good intentions and want to meet everyone’s needs. But how helpful can we really be if we’re rushing around all day, feeling anxious and unintentionally setting ourselves up for careless mistakes because we’re doing too much?
I long to be a woman who chooses wisely and plans well. A woman who seeks the Lord’s guidance before setting her schedule, so that she can experience the peace of His presence instead of the anxiety of her hurriedness.
Do you want to be that kind of woman too? What would our days look like if we embraced the pace of God’s steady grace rather than rushing ahead in our attempts to get more done? What if we actually lived like Proverbs 21:25 says, knowing that careful planning puts us ahead but hurry and scurry can put us further behind?
Would we be more helpful to others and ourselves by slowing down, giving attention to what we’re doing and being present in our circumstances, instead of daydreaming about the next thing on our to-do list? I think so.
As we enter the New Year, let’s decide to make a change and do things differently.
Let’s ask God for insight when we create our schedules and move at a pace that pleases Him. Let’s be wise women who
choose to avoid the trap of rushing which often leads us in the wrong direction.” – Leah DiPascal
