I can’t get away from my paper planner. I know there are all kinds of fancy planners I can get on my phone or iPad, and I have dutifully tried them, but I just have to have a paper planner and something to write with. But as I got a new planner to start this month, I thought maybe I should start using a pencil to write in monthly and weekly plans.
For me, it was a symbolic gesture that I could make plans, but that God ultimately determines my steps. (Proverbs 16:9) Yes there has already been some erasing, but it’s a visual reminder about who is in control. I’ve needed that.
What about you? What areas are hard to give up control in? Are there some areas in your life that need you to use a pencil and not a pen?
