In case you are more overwhelmed by your to-do list than by appreciation, here is some of the smartest things I've hear about dealing with a busy ... make that VERY busy ... life. The tips are from Joanna Weaver, author of one of my favorite books, "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World."
When your responsibilities get to be too much, do this:
- Invite Jesus to rule your life. Present this day to Him, and ask Him for wisdom and guidance.
- Ask God to reveal the next step, the one thing you need to do next.
- Have faith that what needs to get done will get done. What you couldn't do either was unnecessary or is being taken care of by God.
- Be open to the Spirit's leading during the day. You may find your schedule interrupted by a divine appointment. Instead of resisting, flow with God's decision to insert something new in your day.
