What are the things that seem most important in your life? What do you spend most of your time doing? I ask these two questions because a lot of times what we spend the majority of our everyday activities doing does not even involve the things that are most important to us. Family is very important to most people, yet we spend so much of our day at work we don’t really get much time with family. The busyness of today’s society can sometimes make life seem like a blur. Now and days so many people are stressed out, feel pressured, and overall just have way too much to do. We must set priorities in life. No matter what you have going on, make time for what is important.
Before I get out of bed every morning, I always say a prayer and talk to God. I spend time with God first because I know that when I roll out of bed there is no telling what life may throw my way. My little girls make things very unpredictable for me at times. Starting your day right is a great way to help you stay on track. Talking to God and hearing what He has to say. Following His lead all day will help you stay focused. It will also help you keep the right perspective to set priorities. In my life, it’s God first, Husband, Children then everything else has to get in where it fits in. I believe that if we set priorities in life and be lead by God, the stress and pressures of life will be minimal. If for no other reason, when you build your relationship with God, you have such an immeasurable amount of peace in your spirit that remains there at all times.
Walking hand in hand with God will allow you to enjoy every day of your life, not just weekends or vacations. Think about what your priorities are. If you don’t have any, make some. Make it a point to do things that are not just on your to do list, but things that actually matter. Things that have a purpose and have meaning. When you wake up in the morning, set the tone for each day. The peace that God gives will give you pleasure and relaxation even when things are not going the way you want them to. God is just good like that. So I encourage you to set priorities and start by making HIM first then everything else will fall into place. #iDeclare#FirstThingsFirst
Father God, in the name of Jesus I thank you blessing me to see a new day. I decree and declare that I will set priorities each day and not do things to just waste time. I will use my time wisely, and make time for what is important. Lord God YOU will forever be the head of my life and my number one priority. In Jesus name, Amen.
