I keep thinking that life is getting in the way of writing. BUT. Life is what I’m called to live. Writing is simply an outlet to share our life with others. Somehow I think I’ve switched the two.
This is not good.
Maybe this is why it has been a difficult month for me. God is wanting to make sure my priorities stay where they should be. Here is a list of my priorities:
4. Church Life
5. Ministry i.e. The Romantic Vineyard
Ah! When I measure the past month in regards to my priorities I HAVE been living by them. But my heart has been drawn to put the blog third on the list. I’m grateful the Lord has shown this to me, and I’m even more grateful that my life is reflecting the proper order of priorities. So it’s a heart issue I need to go after.
The Bible says, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” But I also believe it applies to say, Out of the abundance of the heart the mind thinks!
God, please help me think right when it comes to my life. May I not make more of one aspect of my life than you want me to. This is why You desire me to prioritize my life and then live according to it. Thank you for being a God of order. May I learn to live this way.
In Jesus’ precious name,
How are you doing with your priorities? Do you enjoy them? Or do you grudgingly do them because it’s the right thing to do? May God help us do them WITH joy!
