I am not organized, I don't plan well, I'm a spur of the moment, go with what works type of gal.
I have a lad who, like his father, likes to know what's going to happen and how things are going to be laid out.
This is a struggle for me and lately I've been rebelling within about that.
So when I did my devotions this morning I felt a firm check in the spirit about the slight rebellion within.
PREPARE your work.
Get things READY.
THEN do your job.
So even God himself wants me to be organized and prepared for the tasks that lie ahead.
How do i argue and rebell against God???
Can't really. :)
The thing is.. I DO KNOW that preparation helps.
How often do I say to myself... oh.. if only I had written that down I would remember to do it. And I often have regrets that I didn't accomplish certain things with the lad. I don't want to be a lazy or forgetful person either so, with the Lord's help and encouragement, and my families proclivities to wanting to know what the PLAN is... I will learn to be more organized and prepared. :)
I don't want to be THIS person: A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man. (proverbs 24:33-34) I do want a lad who loves to learn, who is capable of doing whatever God calls him to, and lad who knows how to discern what is right and knows the importance of family. So let me not be lazy and ill-prepared.
So..how are you building your house???
