Titus 2:11-13

"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus."

Listing My Way to a Better Me

I list.

I list To-Dos...and Have-Dones.

I list needs... and wants.

I list goals... and ideals.

I list who I am... and who I want to be.

I list where I want to go... and how I can get there.

I list.

I lay in bed awake at night, and I think about the areas in which I can do better... be better.  And then I think about steps I can take to get there... be there.

I have so many lists in my mind; and it occurred to me, I'm listing my way to a better me, but these lists are never going to get me there.

The more lists I make, the more I see how far I have to go; and the more I see how far I have to go, the more I recognize that I could never work hard enough to get there.

There is only one list that can effect true change... only one that can make me a better me.
  • Seek God.
