Let me just start by saying this, I am a list girl! Boy, that statement is such an admission, and will hopefully make some sense in a few moments.
Wednesday is the new Tuesday. It was pretty funny in the context of the conversation, but it sank deeper into my spirit.
How many times do I get up with the intention of getting all of these things on my to do list checked off today?
How many times do I tell myself, today is the day I will....?
I can assure you, it is often. So when I don't accomplish ALL of these things by the end of the day, I feel defeated, to say the least, and already somewhat overwhelmed in trying to tuck them somewhere in to the next day's list. Basically I am rehearsing my troubles for yet another day, a day that hasn't even yet become my reality.
Anyway, I read this comment this morning and I couldn't help thanking my Father that today, Wednesday, with it's name, it's label, is just a day like any other. Today is the day that He has made and He already knows where my feet will step, what my mouth will speak and what my heart will encounter. I realized that this day called Wednesday is still THIS day and there is so much more to do in it than make some check marks off MY list of things that seem TO ME to be urgent enough to put on this list, aka my prison cell.
"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Father, today and every day coming, teach me Your ways and help me carry the yoke You have placed on me and allow me the wisdom to know when it is time to rest.
