Organization Isn’t My Strength – #54

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.  Proverbs 27:17. I was on cloud 9 after our first meeting together.  We were able to complete almost 15 scriptures in one evening.  We have 350 to go, but we were off to a good start.  I’m going to oversee this project as the Project Manager.  I got a lot of practice watching Ashley and other Project Managers. Before Sharon left for the evening, we changed our strategy to 10 different scriptures each for the next meeting.  That would give us 5 less scriptures to research, but 5 extra scriptures on our timeline. I went ahead and scheduled the third week in August in Branson, MO to work our book, then we would have the last week in August to wrap things up. (My plans, not God plans). If you have worked with me at all, I am result oriented. I’m known to push people out of their comfort zone, but I am also known for making an individual feel better about themselves by doing something they did not think they could do. I truly try to do whatever I’m doing heartily unto the Lord and not man. Sometimes it seems like it’s easier to please the Lord than man.  When I was recording the scriptures by hand in a journal, I was creating a topic for each scripture, recorded the bible version and if the scripture had the word walk in the scripture, I added a notation “walk”.  Several years earlier, I had my company create a small 3×5 spiral booklet with 31 pages. The book had 2 months of “walk” scriptures that I gave to Rick’s and my sisters and brothers for Christmas.  So, I already had several “walk” scriptures.  I would need 52 “walk” scriptures for the daily devotional. In a spreadsheet, I typed the topic, scripture verse, scripture location, bible version, and notated all the scriptures with the word walk.  All of this information was already recorded a few weeks before Sharon and I started meeting.  I started to notice something with my fingers as I was typing our responses to the scriptures.
