As I drove home tonight from a meeting that's 45 minutes away, I was ponder the idea of A)asking the Lord "what's the next thing you want me to do" and using that for a foundation for my day, and B) using a planner/schedule to help me structure my day so I have a routine. I am still trying to develop a routine.
A friend told me once she never uses a planner, she allows God to work through her and do "the next thing". I've done that....once....one day. I did get things done I never would have imagined. But I tend to need structure, no, routine, to ensure I really get things done and don't dilly dally my day away. I know to much structure leads me to get frustrated when I get behind, and I have learned that God laughs at our plans and He is in all the changes we didn't plan during our day.
So I as I continue pondering these, would you share what your thoughts are?
