The Checklist

Some days I can get going in the morning fairly well enough to gather those things I need to do in the next 24 hours.  My morning routine can sometimes be like a check list; Have uniform. Check. Have extra water bottles. Check. Have after work snack packed. Check. Have bills to mail. Check.  The list goes on and on.  I am only trying to get out the door.  You know what I mean.  You are there too.  Maybe your list is longer than mine or maybe it’s not but, the fact is life and its’ many details can get overwhelming quick.

Driving to work  this week, I  mentally reviewed my list of what I needed for that day and realized I had left some fairly important things at home; quite by accident.  All that went through my mind was, “Well God, you just have to take care of that, don’t you?”  Stopping at the red light, I was grateful to know a God who was big and wise enough to have  created the stars, the whole solar system, the entire earth and it’s many people groups and still;  He holds it all together.  He designed these things to move, rotate, give life and breath to this big, blue planet.  So, I figure the tiny details of my life are easy for Him to balance too.  What an incredible God.  Sighing a huge relief, I continued my way to work and left all those things on my life list for Him to finish for me.  What peace to know God.

What about you?  Who do you go to when your life list gets out of hand and it becomes too much for you to do?  What or who gives your life peace?
