The semester has gone by so quickly, and in some ways that’s a really good thing, and in others, that’s a terrible thing. It seems that this week is almost too busy to handle. I took time this morning to write down all the things that I need to do in the next 10 days and the list fills up both sides of a notepad piece of paper as shown below.
Needless to say, there’s a lot to do, and the list goes on and on. I’m overwhelmed, but as a few people reminded me, I can only do things one at a time. If I look at all that needs to be done, there’s no way any of it will actually get done well. I will be too panicked and overwhelmed to even know where to start. But, if I do one thing at a time, before I know it, everything on the list will be done. Now some of those things are as simple as posting this blog, or attending an event, but others are writing a 15 page paper, which I need to start before the night before. So in a way, they are all really important and will all take a significant portion of my time.
I’m overwhelmed, but there’s only one person who can really give me the peace I need. I have to turn it over to God. It’s hard because I like being in control. I like knowing what’s coming next and what I need to do, but I know that He has a better plan for me which means I have to give it all to Him. Not just the little things that I don’t want to deal with, but the big things too, in fact, all of it. It’s going to be hard, but I’ve got to take things one at a time and do the best that I can.
