The LORD Determines1:00 AM
Welcome to 2017, when my plans have been derailed from almost day one.
I have had technology glitches (thank you to my tech support guy for getting my internet up and going again), a bad cold (the kind where the coughing wakes you up a few times each night), and a trip that was awesome. So when things like this happen, I tend to get a little…stressed.
Okay, let me be honest, I get a lot stressed.
I am looking at my well planned goals that are already off track and we aren’t even done with January. I am looking at my planner that has empty days because I was too sick to use them. Have I already failed this year? Will I be able to catch up?
Perhaps I am asking the wrong question.
Why am I off track? I had a hard time with allergies at the beginning of the month. I caught the cold because I was cuddling a sibling who was sick, the trip was to spend time with friends. Pretty much, either I was derailed because of illness (outside of my control) or because of people. I am guessing that those people are far more important than my schedule. God puts a lot more value on people than accomplishing tasks.
I am learning to put people before projects; to see that God’s plans are not my own, but so much better. I can’t say it is always easy, the goal list still looms above me at times, but I am learning.
