The temptation to let the circumstances of life fill my heart and mind, is constantly knocking. But no, nothing matters more than Jesus! When life is full, and it seems we don’t have enough time for all of it; when we’re tempted to skip over our quiet time with Jesus and rush into our day, isn’t that really when we need that time with Him the most?
What is the first thing we fill our hearts and minds and time with? Little details? Laundry, cleaning, errands to run? What color to paint the kitchen or where to go on vacation? What should I wear, or what should we eat?
Perhaps we’re making time for bigger things. Our marriages? Our children? Teaching them well? Part time or full time jobs? Ministry? After all, ministry is certainly worthy of our time, right?
When we place Him as first priority, spending time with Him each day, drawing near to Him in His Word and seeking to know Him more, He will uphold us and stretch our time so that every worthy calling will fit.
