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.”
