Do you ever sit down and write a To Do list and at the end of the day you find that you couldn't get everything done that was on your list? Then you start the next day's To Do list with the items left over from the day before and add to it for the new day?

That is how I was taught to get things done, many years ago. I have since learned that those To Do lists can add additional stress to my life because they are My To Do lists, not God's To Do list. My To Do lists seem to carry on and on and never get fully completed. Can you relate? Would you agree, that can seem stressful?

God's To Do list is so much easier and less stressful and His list gives me a since of accomplishment. We are here on earth for God's purpose right? So why not let God control your To Do list?

You know when you experience a thought that all of a sudden pops into your head? That is God and He's giving you your To Do list. Jot it down and that is the beginning of your To Do list for that day. Some days He may give you a few things to do, some days a lot, and other days nothing. He knows what you can handle for that day so let Him guide your activities and chores.

You will also know that your day is His will, not yours. It is a fabulous feeling to start each day with an empty To Do list. In addition to that, it is a fabulous feeling to end your day with a completed To Do list and knowing it was directed from God.

Do you want to or need to simplify your life? This has helped me and it may also help you. It is a great way to listen and obey to your Holy Father each and every day.
