God can clear a scheduleI have discovered numerous times when I’m overbooked just how well God can clear a schedule. There are some times when you’re doing God’s will but you just have too much going on.

Recently I was looking at my schedule on a Monday morning and there was literally too much there. It wasn’t doable. I asked, “Lord, I really need some help here.” Thirty minutes later, I got two emails canceling those day’s appointments. Those two cancellations gave me a three-hour block that allowed me to get done what I needed to get done.

When I’m doing what God wants me to do and I get too overloaded, God will take the initiative and postpone, rearrange or cancel some things to make enough space for me to continue doing what he wants me to do.

Now the corollary to this principle is that if you’re chronically overloaded, something you’re doing is actually not God’s will. You may want to see a previous blog entry I did on that topic.
