Confessions of a List-Maker

Leave a comment

I am a list-maker.

Each morning, I write out my “To Do” list for the day. It may look something like this:

-Make dentist appointment
-Mail bills
-Grocery Shopping
-Drop dog off at the groomer
-Call Mom

Well, you get the idea. I’ve been a list maker for as long as I can remember. Almost anything can be turned into a list. In school I listed my homework assignments. I’ve made pros and cons lists, baby name lists, Christmas card lists, and I wouldn’t dream of shopping without a well thought out grocery list.

While it may be helpful in accomplishing short-term goals for the day; I can think of at least two negatives to list-making.

This is a great article by Terrie over at What do you think about lists? I myself am not a list person, I hate them. My wife is a list person, she loves them. How about the “list” of our sins? Does God keep track? Do we?

A prodigal for many years, I eventually found my way back to Jesus through several difficult trials. I write with the hope that I can bless others who have struggled as I have. I seek through Christ to present the truth, and lead others to the cross of Calvary. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. There is no other.
