Praise, Plan, Purpose
The way to a peaceful day

Yesterday I was asking the Lord for a strategy for this season I am moving into. Summer is ending. Fall and winter coming means shifting our energies back to school. I can easily get lost in all I have to do.

 

Praise the LORD

Plan the day

Purpose to follow through

 

He boils things down so simply.

 

Praise the LORD

 

If I begin by praising Him I am reminded of how good He is, all the good He has done for me. I remember His promises. I remember who He is. I am brought into His presence. Looking into His face makes it easier to hear His voice.

 

Plan the day

 

Hearing His voice is what I need to plan my day. What things are truly important to get done? Who can do the task besides me? How will my time best be spent today? He has all those answers.

 

Purpose to follow through

 

Then to follow through… I like to plan. I would even say I’m pretty good at it. When it comes to running my home I am far better at planning than I am at carrying it through. I get so distracted. I get so overwhelmed. I get stuck trying to find a home for everything or trying to get rid of enough stuff to make it all fit but still have what we need.

 

I am seeking to follow His simple strategy. I can do the next thing on the list. What always surprises, and throws me, is I finish His list. I never finish mine.

 

I’ll post more of what transitioning from summer to winter is looking like for us this year and the strategies God is giving me for this season.

 

How is your transition to school going?

 

What strategies has God given you for the season you’re in?
