Have you ever let life and the lists take over? Has the list ever taken precedent over the important things in life? You know, like spending time with your spouse, children, parents, family, friends, neighbors, or someone in need of a friend? Personally, I can say yes. If you are honest, there has probably been a time in your life when you can relate, right? If not, please share in a comment below to encourage and help the rest of us because those who never lose focus have a gift and wisdom to impart on those of us struggling.
I know it's possible because I can think of a couple woman mentors in my life that appear to have their focus where it is supposed to be, 24/7. But then I think, there are some that believe I have it all together. Appearances aren't all they are cracked up to be. I'm not a mess or falling apart yet my focus gets off track and distracted like all of you. The past fourteen months have been crazy busy and full of blessings yet hidden behind and in front of the blessings are obstacles, challenges, and hurdles. Some of which were self-inflicted (unintentionally) and others come with the territory of writing and speaking for God, and Heidi.
An area I want to focus on today is our need and benefit from daily time with God. I am ashamed to admit this time slowly worked its way out of my routine. Do I pray throughout the day? Yes. Do I thank, praise, and look to God during the day as different things enter my life and the lives of those around me?
Yes. BUT, setting aside time each and every day to spend time with God, like I do a friend has slipped from the routine. Part of this struggle came from my lack of sleep and late nights, making it difficult to get up in the morning. I like to start my day with God.
We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith,
Do you have a healthy habit of daily time with God?
