I spend the majority of my day planning what I am going to get accomplished, both for my short term, long term, and lifetime goals; and every day, a bazillion thoughts about how to make good on my plans tumble through my mind. In fact, sometimes I get so consumed with my plans, my desires, my goals, my way, (it can be maddening at times) that I forget that without God’s will and direction, I can do nothing.
A better alternative is to get into the Lord’s presence, and cast all my cares upon him. Why? Because he cares for us. In all of our busyness, leaving God out of our plans is a BIG mistake on our part. It’s not that he is a mean God and he will strike us down if we don’t seek his face; but our lives will surely be more pleasant if we learn to trust God and stay in his presence.
If you haven’t noticed, our world is getting more troubled as the days go by. I wonder what will it take to get our attention and our minds back on what truly matters in life. If we don’t know what matters, we really need to pray about it.
So, what matters to me?
I think that the things that matter the least, I spend the majority of my precious time pursuing. What an awakening this has been for me.
