Priorities In Life

 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.Colossians 3:2

Each morning what is the first thing you do after getting up and having breakfast? Do you run and get on Facebook and check everyone's status? Perhaps read the morning paper? Turn on the television to a talk show? Race out the door to work? 

Maybe deep down you know you are not truly putting God first. You try but all these other things seen to lure you away to capture your attention. Maybe you are distant from God and mad at Him over something that happened in life. It takes real discipline to spend time with the Lord each day. The enemy of our souls, Satan, is a master of getting you distracted. He will get you running to all sorts of things and try to squeeze out God. After all, if there is no time for God each day you are not strengthened to handle each days challenges. Don't be fooled to think Sunday is enough. Satan is the one who makes you make up excuses about why you do not need God or need church. 

Start now and challenge yourself to not do anything else until you have spent time with God. Facebook can wait! 

PRAYER: I love you Lord but sometimes I do not act like it. Forgive me for ignoring you some days. I'm trying to get better and I need you every hour. In Jesus' name. Amen.
