Joshua 1:9 ESV
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Studies show that doing some part of your daily routine differently, whether it’s changing your route to work or opening the door with your left instead of right hand, can boost your creativity.
Do you find yourself driving to work the same way every day? Do you have the same routine each morning? Have you drank the same coffee the same way every day for as long as you can remember? What about your night time routine, is it the same as well?
Today, shake things up just a little, as a matter of fact try to shake it up all week long. Check back with me and let me know if adds a little creativity and excitement to your life. Maybe you are in a rut and you have been there so long you don’t even know you are in one.
It can’t hurt to try it!
Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run.
Too many times we are overwhelmed when we think about all that we have to accomplish in a day. We run the kids here or there, responsibilities of caring for the home seem endless, work often spills over into our home life and then add to that list we need to care for our spiritual and physical well being. Whew, I am tired just thinking about it.
Everyone is busy, so you are not alone. I want to encourage you to start each day by listing out what activities you have to accomplish then number them in order of urgency/priority. Don’t cheat and put the ones you don’t want to do at the bottom of the list if they should go to the top.
After the items are numbered then pray over them and ask for strength to stay on task and ask for wisdom to complete each of them, especially the tough ones.
The end of today’s scripture is true and powerful ” hurry and scurry puts you further behind.” May you complete your to do list each and every day.
Prayers for you to have a wonderful and happy New Year.
