An organized, disciplined Life....

My goal (nothing to do with New Years -really my post surgery goal) is to become organized, to become disciplined in the many facets of my life...
Spiritually,
Nutritionally for myself and my family,
Physically in regard to my health/fitness,
and organizationally in our home, as it is within my parents home for now...
Within each of these areas there is so much to organize, to plan, to pursue, to commit to, to finally get a hold of and then maintain....
Often I go it alone, it seem IMPOSSIBLE...
But the wonderful news is my God is a God who in interested in every facet of my life.
He wants to be involved in EVERYTHING, EVERY ASPECT.
All I need to do is ask, and instead of feeling anxiety I could be feeling the Joy of Serving my Lord.
I don't have to do it all perfectly on the first try. There is strength in His Arms, and as I fail in my strides towards these goals of Discipline in all areas of my life, He is there to catch me when i fall.
There is comfort there.
If I could rise each day seeking to serve Him first, and asking Him to help me in my daily pursuits, then I could find Joy in the trials.
So this is what I am thinking today....
Today I woke up planning to bake bread, clean the kitchen, go to bible study, cook a new dinner that is somewhat complex, get in my exercise, get to Target to get things for our trip to Ohio, pack for Ohio, get books returned to the library, and a few other little things....
But this is not what happened..
Andrew woke up with a fever. I was upset at how it messed up my plans.
I did not wake up with a prayer on my lips.
But on my second trip back to the school today for a forgotten book bag, it hit me... You can't plan everything perfectly...STUFF HAPPENS...
But one thing is for sure everyday...God Loves Me and Wants Me To Spend Time With Him.
I need to rise each day seeking Him first, asking Him that I may find the Joy in all of my daily "trials" because I am really Serving Him!
It may take me awhile to find my organized, disciplined life, but My God will be there to help me along the way, and pick me up time and time again as I trip along the way!
