Five Ways to Handle a Busy Schedule
My husband and I are in full-time ministry, and just like you, we are busy. Like you, we struggle with time management, priorities, and just getting the daily list done sometimes. Some days the pressure comes, and it honestly seems no way to get it all done. As the holidays approach, you may find you have to drop some things and add other things. None of us can do it all. Wherever you may be on this continuum, maybe some of these ideas will help you as they’ve helped me.
Not all days are going to be productive in terms of a list. I’ve sat at my desk at the end of a day, and not one thing on my list was marked off. That’s when I think the Lord had another plan for that day.
As the holiday season looms on the horizon, it’s essential to keep some of your usual routines. It’s good also to be open to eliminating some other things which send you to your crazy place. Remember to keep your focus on your relationship with God and place this as a priority if it isn’t. God is the one who gives you your life, and honoring Him is a daily joy.
But do everything properly and in order. I Corinthians 14:40
Father, give me the desire to place you first at the beginning of every day. I know you will order my steps and I will be at peace walking with you. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
