You don’t have to worry about getting it all done…

Sometimes the moments come when the to-do list and dreams feel like too much. And I wonder, “What if I don’t finish what God wants me to do?”

Then a phrase pops into my heart, “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.”

And I realize I’ve always grabbed hold of the “in you” part. It’s a relief to know that, yes, there will be grace for who I am and that God will guide me into all He wants me to become.

But this morning my thoughts drift beyond the “in me” and I realize that it’s true of all that God wants to do “through me” too.

The purpose.

The plans.

All He wants to accomplish in my life today, this week, for the rest of my life.

The good work in you is inherently tied to the good works through you.

God will complete both. 

Our role is not results.

It’s relationship.

That to-do list and those dreams? God will make them “done” in His way, His time.

I sigh with relief and breathe in joy.

I’m ready for the new week.
