Have you ever heard any of these before? I'm busier than:
1. I'm busier than a centipede in a toe counting contest.
2. Busier than a one eyed cat watching two mouse holes.
3. Busier than a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
4. Busier than a Face Book junky who has 5000 fb friends.
About a year ago, I had to rethink my thinking about the amount of time that I was spending on my laptop. Lets see.....blogging, face booking, pinterest, surfing, emails, etc..... All of these things were robbing me of my devotion times.
The best way for me to begin my day is by spending time in fellowship with the Lord. I have always been a person who loves to journal. It's awesome to be able to look back over past years and to see the way God has moved in my life. When I journal, it gives me the opportunity to see the bigger picture of how awesome God is.
Without even realizing that I was robbing myself of precious time spent with the Lord, I would wake up, grab a cup of coffee and open up my computer to read about what was happening on FB. Sad isn't it??
Thank goodness.....that the Holy Spirit quickened me to see that I had everything backwards.
Reading the Bible....studying my devotions.....Praising the Lord....and inviting HIM to fellowship with me each day......These are the most important things in my life!
God never intended for us to let the busyness of life, REPLACE our time with HIM.
