I never seem to have enough time!

We never seem to have enough time to accomplish what we really want. Projects go on for days, months and sometimes even years. We still haven't called that friend. We have been meaning to visit Grandma and Grandpa more. Busy, busy, busy, everyone is busy.

Like I said on Sunday, when you ask someone how they are doing the #1 response is "Busy." So what do we do? How do we change? Below is a powerful and thought provoking quote from Eric Hoffer.

The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time. It is, on the contrary, born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we DO NOT do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else--we are the busiest people in the world.

There is an amazing and mysterious truth that works for us when we decide to keep our priorities in line. Have you ever experienced this mystery before? On the days you get up and spend time in prayer and Bible reading, regardless of how much you have to do that day, you walk in peace and seem to get a lot done. On the days you don't spend time with God because you have so much to do, it seems like it is never enough. You always need just a little bit more time. Why is that?
When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else. We become the busiest people in the world.
Actions steps:
1. What are you top priorities in life?
2. Do you allow your priorities to dictate your schedule?
3. What changes do you need to make in your schedule in order to make room for what really matters?
