Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee
Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
We tend to make mental list or checklist of things we have or want to do to have some type of control/order over our lives. If we could check everything off our list we could relax and be at peace. However, the more we work to accomplish the goals, the more things are put on the list. The harder we try the more frustrated we may become.
There is a better way to find order in this life. Instead of constantly monitoring our checklist we should focus our attention on the Presence of God which will keep us in His Perfect Peace. Allow God to sort out what is important and what is not, what needs to be done now and what does not. Seek, live and breathe His Peace.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. NIV
Hebrews 3:1 And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God's messenger and High Priest. NLT
II Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. NKJ
