On Sunday, September 14th, I left my home to go to church. I had a sinkful of dishes, floor full of laundry, many house activities that needed done. I had just planned to ‘put them off’ until I got home from church. I had no idea of the wind strength that was coming through. I had no idea the length of the power outage that was coming as well.
For anyone who truly knows me, I am generally very organized and always prepared. For me ‘to put something off’ is out of character for me. If I would have had any idea how the next week would be, I would have been more organized and made sure the house chores were complete.
While every human being puts these tasks off to some sort. We need to prioritze our responsibilities each and every moment of our lives. But, the preparation of our spirtual lives and the spirtual lives of others will always be the number one priority. In Isaiah 25:1, ‘O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.’ Even the Lord, our God, is prepared.
With this said, think about taking time today and think about what you need to be prepared for. Is it something that can wait? Or is it something that should be done now? What are the priorities that the Lord has set for you?
Thinking of all these things will prepare you for all of the events that go on in your life. Events can be just a load of laundry but can also be eternity!
