Where Do I Start?

When you look at your to do list this week, are you asking yourself, "Where do I start?"  I certainly know the feeling.  In fact, I am dedicating most of my morning just to organize all the things I need to get done and prioritize them so that I can pack it all into this week.

Fortunately there is an answer to the question "Where Do i Start" in the very first book of Proverbs.  In the Message, Solomon tells us:
Start with God—the first step in learning is bowing down to God;    only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning.

Next time that the words "I don't even know where to start" pop into your mind, I hope that this verse does as well.   Start the to do list with God -- a short prayer, a reminder that He's got you and that with his strength, wisdom and courage, you can accomplish whatever it is he has planned for you today.

Just that one thought makes everything seem a lot more manageable, doesn't it?
