The Schedule by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/26/11

 

“5:00 a.m.—go to the gym. 6:00 a.m.—get the kids ready for school.

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: As women, we fall for this idea that we can “do it all.”

“11:00—I’ve got to write the Jorgensen report. Then by noon I’ve got to run those cupcakes over to the school.“

Nancy: Women who think they’re supposed to juggle every task that comes along usually end up frazzled and frustrated.

“Um, 5:00—I’ve got to cook something at least a little healthy for dinner. And then 5:27 I’ve got to take Sarah over to her piano lessons.”

Nancy: But when we understand what God wants us to do and ask for His help, it leads to freedom and joy.

“6:30—I’ve got that school fundraiser meeting and the . . . that means I’m not going to make it to the grocery store until after 7:30. Boy, a lot to do today.”

Nancy: What motivates your activities? Are you trying to make a good impression? Is it just that you can’t say “no”? Why don’t you ask God what’s on His agenda for this season of your life?

“Then finally, 1:00 a.m. Go to bed.”

  • “Don’t assume you have to be extraordinary to be used by God. You don’t have to have exceptional gifts, talents, abilities, or connections. God specializes in using ordinary people whose limitations and weaknesses make them ideal showcases for His greatness and glory” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
