I wrote my Monday to-do list on Sunday night and then groaned at 5:20 AM when I knew it was time to rise and face it.

After a shower, a few deep breaths, and a quick peek at the latest images coming out of Japan, I read this and put myself in check…

“One reason we are so harried and hurried is that we make yesterday and tomorrow our business, when all that legitimately concerns us is today. If we really have too much to do, there are some items on the agenda which God did not put there. Let us submit the list to Him and ask Him to indicate which items we must delete. There is always time to do the will of God.  If we are too busy to do that, we are too busy.” ~Elisabeth Elliot

May this encourage you today, too, as your own Monday list begs you to choose between being harried or humbled.
