Priorities




A  friend posted this on Facebook recently, and it made me smile, but it also made me question how much time I spend writing posts or generally hopping about on different blogs etc, without actually spending much time with Jesus? 

When I do spend time in God's presence, which is hopefully very often (!) I do find that my priorities take a seismic shift, and God very gently reminds me, as only He can, of what I really need to spend time on, and who I need to spend time with.  In fact, time spent with God is actually a timesaver, because He shows me anything I might be wasting time on, that could be better spent in another direction. 

How marvellous that He is interested in the big things in my life, as well as the minutiae of daily cares and thoughts. 

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear,
What a privilege to carry
EVERYTHING to God in prayer.

Amen. I only truly have peace when God is number one in my life. If I get too busy and distracted, and start squeezing in quiet time with the Lord in between my busyness, my peace goes. xxx

Hi Jayne! Such truth here. Everything sorts itself out for me when I simply indulge in His great hospitality toward me.

My thoughts exactly, Jayne! Plus, I really have to remind myself sometimes to actually do the things I enjoy and not just read about the things I enjoy doing! Bess
