This week I received a copy of the GirlTalk girls’ latest book, Shopping for Time. This little book is the most unique look at time management I’ve ever read. I’ve never met these four women, but I feel like I know them. Know what I mean? Their blog and books have pointed me in the right direction and encouraged me many times. I read this little nugget of wisdom just a minute ago and I HAD to share it for my “quote of the week.”
In the section I am reading now, the girls are sharing how to manage life during those times when big things (like having babies) are beginning to crowd out everything else. Their third tip is what I want to share. They write,
As Dad likes to remind us, “Only God gets his to-do list done each day. We are not God. We are finite creatures with serious limitations.” Only God accomplishes everything he needs to do, in exactly the way he intends, in precisely the right amount of time. Only God! This truth helps us see the arrogant absurdity of expecting to complete our own to-do list. It frees us to humble ourselves and draw upon God’s strength to simply do what we can in busy seasons.
Isn’t that a wonderful truth?! What are some things you do to manage your time wisely during a busy season of life?
