Getting My Priorities in Order

Where have I been? Hmmm, living my life I guess. I have not posted in almost a week when it is my goal to try and post something on a daily basis. Here is the thing with me: when I don't post, I do not read the Bible. I may catch a verse here or there but I definitely do not get into the word like I should or like I want to.

What has been keeping me from my daily time with God? Mind you, it is time that I enjoy, and time that makes me feel so much better about everything around me. So why have I been so neglectful? I get caught up in living in the world. That is the most honest answer I can give. I have allowed other things to precede God. What could be more important than communicating with the one being who provides everything that I need anyway?

There is nothing more important than God, and in my head I know that. However, somehow I get caught up and He takes a back seat to everything else in my life. What! Shouldn't He be driving?

I know I am not the only one with this problem. My priorities are all screwed up and I need to get them straight. Honestly, I don't want to be on a Jesus diet where I start off strong, and the next thing you know, I am eating a gallon of ice cream in the middle of the night.

So, for those of us having a little trouble with our priorities as far as God is concerned, here is a key verse that should shake some sense into us (of course I am included).

And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added onto you. ~Luke 12:29-31 KJV
