It's very easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and when we do often times some of our relationships by default begin to suffer. When you drill down into relationships a little more you realize it's your relationship with God that tends to suffer the most. Why? Because God isn't in front of you asking you to take the trash out, or to make Him the dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets, or to have the quarterly report on their desk before 5:00pm. Here's my
point. Most of us are constantly being pulled in several directions by our spouse, kids, boss, coworkers, friends and various activities. The squeaky wheel gets the grease and then before we know it a few days have passed and we haven't had our quite time to fellowship with God through prayer and bible study.
Then you start to feel distant, maybe even making decisions without praying, etc. and before you know it, other areas of your life start to feel out of balance. If you are a born-again follower of Christ, (Christian) your relationship with God is your top priority. It supersedes your spouse, your kids, the pets, your job, even your physical health and yes, I know this sounds crazy, but it is your life source.
Your foundation (bedrock) needs to be firmly established. God is not at the top of your to do list, He's in every aspect of your life and included in every element of your list. I cannot stress this enough, He is not a task you complete daily, He is the reason you live daily. Your goal is to glorify Him in all that you do with your wife, your kids, your job and so on.
I get it! The bed feels the best right when it is time to get up, so we wait until the last minute, then we rush off to work. We plan to pray on the way in, but then the phone rings or our favorite song is on the radio. Before you know it, you are at the office with no time to spare and immediately start your work day. 5:00 comes and you are off to the gym, home, dinner, homework with the kids and exchange a few pleasantries with your spouse. Before you know it, you are sound asleep.
What's the problem? No time for your heavenly Father. How do you make time? Well, it takes a plan and it takes discipline. I believe within 40 days you can see your spiritual life transformed if you truly want it to be. Learn more now!
