Luckily, church this morning was about priorities and running out of hours in the day. We focused on these encouraging verses:

Hebrews 4:10-11  “...for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his 
own work, just as God did from his...make every effort to enter that rest…”  

Proverbs 10:27  "Reverence for God adds hours to each day;  
so how can the wicked expect a long, good life?" 

Proverbs 3:5-6  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on  
your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and  
he will make your paths straight." 

Awesome. Reverence for God adds hours to each day. How cool is that? I keep reminding myself that God WANTS me to succeed in all that I do, He just wants me to do it through Him. He wants to be the strength through it all, He wants to be the comfort in my weak moments, and He knows that I cannot do it without Him. I can see Him begging for me to not try to do this on my own, because I will get bogged down and fail every time. The goal this week is not to get everything finished, but to keep my priorities straight for the duration of the time. I pray that not only do I find my quiet time with Him every morning, but that I can find a moment of rest and thankfulness in each day. The Bible says to make "every effort to enter that rest." Who knew rest was so important? In this busy life we always focus on what comes next and soon enough your life has passed you by and you haven't accomplished anything you wanted. Rest in Christ. Love the people around you. Focus on the important things in life and leave the stress to God, who is more powerful than you. And my final goal for this week? Do everything with a smile!
