A quote that makes me squirm:)

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Saw this on a little devotional flip-chart that was revealing and convicting: "You always have time for that which you place first."

We may say we don't have time to plan and prepare healthy meals, and yet we do have time to sit at the computer scanning through Facebook posts and responding to people we don't even know!

We say we are too busy to take 30 minutes to walk after supper, but we can find time to watch an hour or two of TV or cuddle up with a favorite book.

We say we can't fit food-journaling into our day, but we spend the same amount of time working the newspaper crossword puzzle.

Priorities: I was thinking of this subject this very week. It dawned on me that it's easy to see my priorities - they are what I spend the bulk of my time on. Whether they reflect what my
priorities SHOULD be or not, the way I do use the waking hours God has graciously given me shows what my priorities ACTUALLY are.

Thoughts?

    you are 110% correct. It is a matter of prioritizing what is important to you. I have lots of time to cook healthy meals, journal my food and exercise because I have made those things my top priority. Everything else can wait until I have those things accomplished.

    The laundry in the dryer is still going to be there when I get back from the gym and they world is not going to come to an end if it has to wait an extra hour or three. However, not going to the gym could have a very negative effect on my health.

    Happy Sparking Friend!
