Be Satisfied With What God is Doing

Here’s another great post from Jay Higham. It follows up earlier posts from Steven and I about being able to just let God run your small group, and your life. Here a tease, the whole post can be found here.

Tip: Be satisfied with what God is doing in and through you.

 I have learned a lot about how to manage my time. Some weeks are great. Some weeks are not so great. But the best and most important lesson I learned is that nothing happens that God hasn’t ordained to happen.

Without getting into Theology and Doctrinal positions, I believe that God ordains all that happens. Nothing transpires without His knowledge and approval. It’s that understanding that helps me to recognize that what happens during my week to week happens because God makes it happen. Suddenly, to do lists don’t matter. While they may be an organizing tool, we accomplish what God has ordained for us to accomplish’.

At the end of the day we all hope to experience that feeling of accomplishment. We want to know that we worked hard, completed our tasks, and finished well. But how do we get to that point when there are still “To Do’s” left on our list?
