The organization lie is this: If I just get more organized I can get it all done.

So I buy a new fancy shmancy planner. I download a new app. I browse the internet for organization tips.

And some of those things are helpful. But they never fix it. I still have tired days when we’re all still in our pajamas at 2:00 in the afternoon. I still struggle to be patient when the girls both think they need me but really don’t. I still have dishes piled up in my sink.

My real problem is not organization; I’m limited and I don’t like that.¬†Every night I get tired and have to go to bed before it’s all finished. Only God doesn’t get tired. Getting tired reminds me that I can’t do it on my own. I need him.

I’m so thankful that a new calendar doesn’t let me forget that.
