So, I’m sitting at my desk this morning, having just finished a 6am appointment with a former member of Meadowland. After listening to him explain how life just got in the way of church, I am sitting here trying to get a handle on my day. My desk, cleared off at the beginning of the week is now covered with paper. How did this happen? How did I get from being on top of task list to being behind – one word – snow.
It snowed yesterday. My phone and internet service was knocked out the night before until about noon. I had forgotten to mark out the parking lot for the snow plow guy, so that had to be fixed before he could come back and finish. So I was walking around the parking lot in the freezing cold trying to hammer markers into the frozen ground thinking, “Okay, this is where I need to be right now God – HELP ME!”
Little did I realize that my call for help would not be with just dealing with the snow, but about helping me to stay on track with the things He had for me for the rest of the week. I lost a day yesterday, but have realized that it was never my day – it was His. So today, my responsibility, as I prepared to clean off my desk and try to get caught back up, is to first make sure my heart is right with God.
“For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God. Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.”
– Psalm 86:10-12
