Have you ever had one of those days when everything starts out good and then it takes a left turn and heads down hill? That was my day today! I got up early, had a good time with God and then went to the hospital to try and be a blessing by trying to bring a little peace and comfort to a lady that was having surgery. Then a headache hit and started to grow and made me totally useless for the rest of the day. (Have not had one of those suckers for such a long time!)
I can’t stand days like today, because I get almost nothing accomplished on my to-do list. Which means that tomorrow I have twice as much to get done. I don’t like it, because it makes me feel useless. As if the headache did not make me feel bad enough, I then start to beat up on myself because of an unproductive day. And then it hit me! The reminder of what I already knew!
My day being productive is not based on my to-do list! My day being productive is based on God’s to-do list! At the end of the day we may have everything checked off of our to-do list, but if we have not accomplished what God created us for, then that is when we really have a productivity problem.
A to-do list is a good thing! The most important thing to have on your list is what God wants and has for you to do! So, the next time you are having an unproductive day, just make sure that you take the time to think about what it is that God has for you to do. When you discover what God has for you to do, then do it and you will watch unproductive day become productive!
Before I go to bed – I’ve got a few things to do!
