To-Do list weg

Do not search for security in the world you in habit. You need to make mental checklists of things you need to do in order to gain CONTROL of your life. If only you could check everything off the list, you could relax and be at peace. But the more you work to accomplish that goal, the more things crop up on your list. the harder you try, the more frustrated you become. 

There is a better way to find security in this life. Instead of scrutinizing your checklist, focus your attention on my presence with you. This continual contact with Me will keep you in My peace. Moreover, I will help you sort out what is important, and what is not, what need to be done now and what does not. Fix your eyes not on what is seen (your circumstances), but on what is unseen (My presence).

Gek wordt ik van to-do-lijsten, daarom sprak het bovenstaande me aan. Jezus heeft blijkbaar een andere kijk op het leven dan to-do-lijsten. "Ik ben gekomen om te geven LEVEN in overvloed", klinkt niet als to-do-lijsten.
