Thought and Prayer for Monday, May 14, 2012

Monday, May 14, 2012

There will be days when we just don’t feel like doing anything. There will be times when all we want to do is rest and relax. However, we have to be careful that our time off doesn’t extend from days to weeks and then from months to years. We need to really examine our lives and see what we have done lately to take action on God’s plan for us. We need to keep busy and work toward what He wants us to accomplish. God wants us to succeed but we can’t if we aren’t doing anything.

Ecclesiastes 11:6 “Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both.” (NLT)

Lord, we know we all have work to do for You. We know each of us have different obligations. We know each of us have different tasks. We know each of us have different lives. We know we need to work toward Your goals. We know we can continue to put off what it is You want us to do. Help us to keep busy today so we are doing Your will and we will be successful according to Your plan. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    I agree with you completely! I don't know how many times I just want to do nothing, but have to realize that my plan is not the best plan and only God has a perfect plan for each of us!
