Seriously we are busy. Busier than ever. I currently am a full-time student. I’m about to take on a job, 30 hrs a week. I have 4 LOs. Trust me I’m busy. I also volunteer every Wednesday night at my local church to teach. My schedule is tight.
I can’t catch up on sleep. I have homework or a to do list to do non stop. I fight for the little moments with my kids each day where we can connect. Where they know I still love them. I’m still paying attention to them. I can’t get devotional time in. I make excuses. If I try to read I’ll fall asleep. If I fall asleep I’ll see to long and be late to something. I have to do homework first. It’s more pressing.
Stop. I need to stop. Nothing is more important than making time for God. Do I think he isn’t going to refresh me when I read His word and pit him first? I’m not sure. All the more reason I need to be in the word. In the word first. I need to drop the excuses. I need to just do it.
I also need to know when to stop the busy-ness. Stop the constant energy bunny. I need to connect with my kids. They need me and it won’t be for long before they are gone.
Prioritize those moments. Love your people.
