It seems God is keeping this whole “planning” idea at the forefront of my mind. How do you know how to plan your day? ASK! ­čśë Today’s Jesus Calling┬ádevotion fits right in with this continuing theme. Here’s a little of it:

Seek to please Me above all else. Let that GOAL be your focal point as you go through this day. Such a mind-set will PROTECT you from scattering your energy to the winds….Each day presents you with CHOICE after choice….Without a focal point to guide you, you can easily lose your way….You inhabit a fallen, disjointed world, where things are constantly UNRAVELING around the edges. Only a vibrant RELATIONSHIP with Me can keep you from coming unraveled too. [emphasis mine]

Our ultimate goal each day should be to live in a manner that pleases our Lord, and make choices that are in line with His will for our lives. We are His servants, after all.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. – Colossians 3:23-24 ESV

The only way we can be clear on God’s will for our day is if we take time to consult with Him each morning. Otherwise, we are simply throwing spaghetti at the fridge to see if it sticks. ­čśë

So today….take a few minutes (at least) to escape to your secret place and ask God to give you a desire for – and a clear understanding of – His will for you today. Just today. That’s more than enough of a challenge for most of us, isn’t it? ­čśë

Happy Monday, y’all. Let’s choose wisely. And remember…..
