Today, i would love to share a youtube video from Heather Lindsey that i watched this past week.
It’s titled Help, I am just too busy. I saw the title and the summary and this is totally me so I closed out everything and stayed focused through it all. It basically talked about how sometimes we get so stressed out from life, so many things pulling us in all directions and you do not even know what way to turn to. We get so distracted with everything. In these times, everyone is so busy, it’s crazy, be it career, business, kids, family, church, there is always something. To top it up there is social media that we sometimes get so lost in and before we know it, we have wasted an hour scrolling through our phones! Some days, I have to force myself to be still in his presence cause I think about all I have to do all day and how quickly I need to get started with them.
A few take-homes:
Sometimes we think certain things are more important than spending time with God, we do everything else and put him on the back burner. Just like Martha was distracted by cooking and all the prep work while Mary focused on Jesus.
We have time for what’s important to us. So true cause we all get so wrapped up in social media right? and then we make excuses to why we can’t spend time with him.
Sometimes, we need direction from God and instead of sitting at the feet of Jesus, we choose to drive by him or just do a quick drop in with him and demand an answer from him when we should really be sitting at his feet and listening to him.
Be consistent and faithful in the little things and he will lift you up. It’s funny this was one thing the Lord laid on my heart the night before i watched this video and then i heard it again in the video.
You may need to close out your phones to really be still in his presence. For me, I get so distracted with my phone when I am trying to do my quiet time, I am learning to just toss my phone away
Give God the best time of your day, if you are a morning person then wake up and spend time with him. I am not a morning person and I struggle waking up so really for me, I do my quiet time at night before bed and just do a very quick prayer time in the morning.
Those are a few pointers I got. But trust me, you need to listen to this video! Have a blessed week!
