With that being said, I have decided that I am going to be giving the Lord more priority in my daily life. After our study last night at church with Andy Stanley called Time of Your Life: Part Two ”At Capacity”, I am changing my life’s priorities around. First of all, I will not be wasting my time on FB statuses or checking the statuses of others when my time can be better spent chasing after God and what He wants to show me as I spend more time with Him and in His Word. I will still have a FB account, but I will not be spending (or wasting) so much time on it. Yep…I’m was one of those FB junkies!
There are so many other things that eat up my time during the day that keep me from being more productive in the things that REALLY matter...God, family, faith, and others. I will not be posting to my blog as much either (even though I've already taken great strides to minimize my time on that already). I am deciding that it is more important for me to spend time seeking the things of God than the things of the world. When I look at the timeline of my life I realize just how short it is...how every day brings me closer to the end...and how each day passes more quickly than the last. And quite frankly, I think I've wasted enough of it.
So TODAY I choose to reprioritize the rest of my life, my time, my talents, and my everything. I want to bring glory to God. I pray He uses me in a GREAT and MIGHTY way. I pray His holiness and guidance drenches everything that He puts ahead of me. I pray He forgives my doubt and laziness. And I pray He helps me to keep His Word and to follow HIS instructions. Time is too short to live for anything else. Once God is THE BIGGEST priority in my life I know that everything else will line up as it should.
"Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men (and women) of little faith! And do not seek what you will eat or what you will drink, and do not keep worrying. For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; BUT YOUR FATHER KNOWS THAT YOU HAVE NEED OF THESE THINGS. But SEEK YE FIRST HIS KINGDOM, and these things will be added to you. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves money belts which do not wear out, and unfailing treasure in heaven, which no thief comes near nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Luke 12:27-34 (NASB)
