One area of my life that needs my constant attention, is staying connected to God while living a busy life.
Busyness wraps itself around me most days. Simply taking care of a household requires a lot of my time......the reason why? Because I like to have a well kept home. Other things which cause me to veer away from my time with God includes hobbies, trips, that famous black box known as a TV, my yard, and no doubt......my computer.
I am always thankful for our church and for the time I get to spend with our church family. However, there are times when my focus at Church is not where it needs to be. I do not like living a "ME" centered life. I need The Lord in my life at ALL times.
This thing called guilt swallows me up when I know that I am not putting God first in my life. Way too many times, I have seen days when I have stepped away from my daily conversations with God and it is during these times that I find it difficult to focus even at Church.
What do these kind of days speak to my heart? It speaks that I am focusing way too much on "ME" and on the worldly things in life.
My life operates best when I take the time to wake up each morning and say: "Good Morning, Lord....thank you that I am alive."
And....how great it is to sip a good hot cup of coffee as I read God's word and spend time in fellowship with the Lord. It is super important for me to sit quietly and to hear the direction in which God is leading me.
I also love to talk to God just before I go to sleep....How important it is to thank the Lord for his Mercy and Grace. To thank HIM for loving me and for watching over me. At the end of the day, I have so much to thank HIM for.
Oh yes.....Busyness does have a way of soaking up our lives and it can make us so tired. Do we have to give up those things we love to do? No....we do not. We only need to Put God first and all else will fall in order the way it is suppose to do.
Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful days.
I had to wear a long sleeve shirt earlier today. The temps are WAY NOT NORMAL.....for our area. Especially in the middle of July. I believe there was a record low this morning of 66 degrees. Very Nice!!
