Have you ever had so much on your agenda to do, that it seemed like you would not be able to accomplish the things that need to get done?  That the things to do lists, keeps getting longer instead of shorter?  That can be discouraging, especially when you are trying to get ahead, rather than behind.  Perhaps what we need to do is stop and take some time for reflections.  To evaluate what our priorities should be, and move them to the top of our lists and push back or even remove those things that are not essential to our survival or well-being.

I have been guilty of starting one project and then before I can complete it, begin another.  Down through the years, I realized that I am good at multi-tasking.  However, it’s very easy to become distracted and lose focus of what is really important by doing too many things at the same time.  Even worst, the things that could have been completed successfully may still remain undone because we overload ourselves with too much at one time and instead we now have multiple tasks that are incomplete, unfinished projects waiting for our attention.  Hence we become frustrated because we haven’t moved forward and the pile has gotten larger instead of smaller.

This is why it’s important to make time for reflections that will have a positive effect on the spiritual (those things pertaining to the realm of the spirit in which we cannot see) and natural realm (those things pertaining to this world and what we can see).  We need to sit down, stop what we’re doing and re-evaluate our lives, because our needs change daily and what may have been a priority yesterday is not so important today.  There is an old true proverb, “don’t put off what needs to be done today, for tomorrow.”  Every day first thing in the morning we should start our day, with prayer and meditation.  The Bible says, “I love them, that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me” Proverbs 8:17.  When we take time to acknowledge God (the Creator and Heavenly Father) we should ask for His guidance before we start doing anything, “Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day” Psalms 25:5.

We will be able to see, hear and think more clearly when we take time for reflections.  Things that may have seemed to be un-surmountable and impossible no longer pose a threat to wreck havoc and discord in our lives; we can begin to remove the clutter that surrounds us by removing those things that are just taking up space!  We will cease to be confused, disoriented and miserable.  When we take time for reflections we gain peace of mind and spirit which will enable us to easily accomplish the tasks and goals set before us, and we will have good success!  “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”  Joshua 1:8
