For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. ~ 1 Corinthians 14:33
Here I go talking about time management again.
First, Happy Friday! It is our unofficial start to the weekend. I woke up this morning with the thought, ‘where did the week go?’ I still have a lot of work to get done today, lot’s of chores for the weekend and I am preparing my home for some major changes that are happening next week. Plus blogging, writing, ministry work…
I love my purposeful life but at times, I feel overwhelmed and unorganized. I know that if I don’t get balance, sooner or later everything on my plate will fall.
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalm 90:12
I have said that my schedule is ‘hectic’. Is there anyone else out there living with a hectic schedule? The root meaning of hectic is ‘feverishly exciting, full of disorganized activity’ (etymonline.com). This sounds like most of my days, running, busy, purposeful but unorganized. Yesterday, I was on the phone from the time I left work until the time I went to bed. I can’t say that I had a full hour that I was not on the phone! Everything was purposeful but I did not have a timed plan for the work I was doing.
So today, I am purposefully slowing down. As I am running, I am not applying wisdom to my heart. I am determined to master this time management and order in my life. Perhaps by next year 2018, I may be in the place of teaching the art of time. And who knows, there may be a book birthed as well.
In the meantime, I am carefully planning the hours of my weekend so that next week, order and peace will prevail.
Walk in peace! Enjoy your coffee and power up your day!
