Today I have so many things on my mind. I feel like I have many things to accomplish and not near enough time to do them. Have you ever felt that way?
In my quiet time lately, I have been reading from Isaiah. He was a great prophet and God had him write beautiful prophecy that we would fall in love with even today. But one thing he is most known for is Isaiah 6:8, ‘Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? ” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”’ That is my prayer as well – send me! – but today, with so many things on my mind, I struggle with where exactly I am supposed to go.
So I started with Jesus today. Brilliant, yes?
We had Vacation Bible School last week, and I had the wonderful blessing of watching my seven-year-old worship. As she sang and did hand motions, I could see Jesus in her face. She was in her own little world, not worried at all about what anyone else was doing in the room. She was focused, and joyful.
That is where I plan to start today. My to do list seems daunting and finding what should take priority – well, that is a whole challenge in itself. It would not take much for me to become overwhelmed, and very quickly turn into “crazy-wife.” But today I refuse. Today is about Jesus, and, Lord willing, everyday hereafter will be about Him too.
Every day is a new day, and every day takes a intentional effort to keep my focus where it needs to be. I am determined, but very thankful for a Savior who remains with me…and the grace He continues to give.
