Busy Schedule Helped Sort Priorities

Thursday, July 25, 2013

When you have a full plate and you have to make choices you have to sort out what is really most important. What are some of your choices relative to everything else in your life? Do your choices line up with what is really important? Or do you give in to other people's idea of what you should be doing with your time?

Today I had to make some choices because everything was just not going to fit into the day. So I didn't get as many spark points as I would have liked, and I didn't get to spend as much time on Ebay as I would have liked, but I did get a good workout in and I did eat healthy. I did visit a sick friend, and I made and took a meal to someone who needed it. I spent some alone time with my youngest granddaughter, and I did what I believe God would have chosen for me to do. I did check in with one of my teams and share an important moment with someone at a critical point in her life. That was worth doing and vitally important in my world. And at the end of the day I would make those same choices all over again.

I want to thank God for helping me to make some choices that I believe were ordained by him and let some others go that didn't need to happen today necessarily. Tomorrow is another day for many things that are not absolutely critical.

Now for a good night's rest and back at it early in the a.m.

Take care all,

    Thank you so much for your encouraging post. I keep trying to listen for God's plans for my day but I keep getting lost in all the clutter of the world around me and I can't hear him. Still working on this. It helped to hear how someone else makes it work for them. I hope someday to be able to post a note like yours saying I followed God's plan for me today.

    Most of us have to make decisions like this every day and it's good to run them by a higher power to make sure they are the right choices. Good job.

    I totally understand I had to push myself to go to a job interview tonight or to stay home with my kids. balancing priorities can be really hard especially when it comes to nutrition and exercise.
