The brain switch: God vs. Satan

Do you ever have a to-do list circling around in your brain that makes you dizzy? As soon as you take 15 seconds to focus on one task that needs to be done, it inevitably branches into a chain of other related tasks, and the list grows longer.

Satan loves this phase. This is when my mind is ripe for any of his favorite mantras: You can't do this. There's no way. What were you thinking? You'll never meet expectations. You can't even control your own life; how can you be a good mother/wife/Visiting teacher/friend/volunteer/(insert role here)? You are incapable. You are failing.
