TOPIC: Organization and Will
"Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest" - Proverbs 6:6-8.
You learned yesterday that the ability to organize is in all God's' creation, including you. What's missing sometimes is the desire. You must learn to organize your world, not just to be a 'neatnik' but to remove clutter that leads to stress and inability to fulfill your purpose and goals. Last month we looked at time management. This month we will look at principles to help you structure and order your world for greater effectiveness and peace of mind. Are you willing to learn to organize? Are you ready to draw on the inate ability you have to bring structure to your life and things? Is this something you want or feel pressured to do?
Lord, I confess that I have enjoyed some of my disorganization, which in a sense is rebellious on my part. My life and the things in it have not reflected Your will, and my disorganization has kept me attached to my stuff and unable to embrace new opportunities You have for me. I am ready and willing to change.
