Are you one? I am.
In order to control every aspect of life, I have a list of boxes that I want to check off every day. The good side of this is that things normally get done that I want done. The down side is that when I live life that way, my heart isn't in it. That may work fine for doing the laundry and the dishes. It doesn't work out so well for the list that counts:
Read the Bible - check
Pray - check
Spend time with my husband - check
Teach my kids - check
Spend time with my kids - check
Sex - check
Go to church - check
Teach Sunday school - check
Lead small group - check
God has been challenging me in so many areas of my life and showing me how little it counts THAT I get it done but how much it matters HOW I get it done.
I don't know if you are a box checker too. I do know that is not what God intended and I look forward to Him teaching me HOW to do it better.
