“Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1
You may have decided that, right now, the number of things you are doing, and the number of responsibilities you have, is a healthy amount. However, somehow you still feel a sense of “over-busyness. You feel you should have adequate “non-hectic” time to complete what you need to complete, but that is not the case. You still have an “urgency of busyness”.

If being disorganized is hindering you from doing what you feel you should be doing, please read on!
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word, wisdom and guidance in what is orderly and right. Help me to “throw off” any hindrance keeping me from doing what You want me to do because I am disorganized. Please give me the wisdom to know what to change, and the discipline to begin making these needed changes. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
