Elisabeth Elliot wrote, “If we really have too much to do, there are some items on the agenda that God did not put there.” That is both true and convicting. We have enough time to do in this life what God has given us to do in it. If we focus our lives on Jesus, we will leave nothing undone. Nothing can thwart His sovereign will, and the work He has given us to do will get done.
Yet, how often are we harried and hurried, racing to fit one more thing into our schedule only to lament later that we will never have enough time to get it all done? As Mrs. Eliot suggested, perhaps we need to examine what it is we are busy doing. There is both rest and peace in the will of Jesus, not franticness and stress.
