Do The Next Thing

Do the Next Thing is the only way I know to be successful in the tasks before me. I am a list maker, I like order. If I stare at the list for any amount of time, it can be daunting. Doing just the very next thing on the list is  how I plunge in. It is a key to successfully completing what is before me.

A poem quoted by Elisabeth Elliot

Do The Next Thing
“At an old English parsonage down by the sea,
there came in the twilight a message to me.
Its quaint Saxon legend deeply engraven that,
as it seems to me,
teaching from heaven.
And all through the hours the quiet words ring,
like a low inspiration,
‘Do the next thing.’
Many a questioning,
many a fear,
many a doubt hath its quieting here.
Moment by moment,
let down from heaven,
guidance are given.
Fear not tomorrow,
child of the King,
trust that with Jesus,
do the next thing.
Do it immediately,
do it with prayer,
do it reliantly,
casting all care.
Do it with reverence,
tracing His hand,
who placed it before thee with earnest command.
Stayed on omnipotence,
safe ‘neath His wing,
leave all resultings,
do the next thing.
Looking to Jesus,
ever serener,
working or suffering be thy demeanor,
in His dear presence, the rest of His calm,
the light of His countenance,
be thy psalm.
Do the next thing.”
