I have been in church my entire life. Yep. I remember attending revivals and being woken up at 2am being told it was finally time to go home. I was “saved” at age 12 and baptized when I was 13. Throughout the years I’ve struggled with the issue of God’s grace and how much He had for me. I wasn’t so sure how close to God I actually was through some tough times, but I think most of us have been there.
Relationships are so important.
If you measure the strength of a relationship on the amount of time you spend focused on it and the amount of intentional quality time into it, a few days a week just aren’t going to cut it, if it’s an important relationship. Most important things take time to grow, or if neglected, takes time to slip if not careful. If your invested time shows what you love in life, then it really comes down to your priorities throughout the week. And believe me, there are a lot of unimportant things that can be focused on, too.
How are you doing? No really, how are you doing?
That question is probably answered differently depending on the subject we are talking about and the season of life that you are in right now. Sometimes I need to put more focus on my marriage, or writing, or projects, or family, or time management, or whatever else there is…
When a certain task takes a larger amount of concentration than usual and you can’t seem to get it done or it’s just taking longer than it should due to distractions, it may be time to change things up. Of course, if you don’t know what to change exactly, you can begin to experiment with things.
I thought I’d start your week off the right way… with a smile. Enjoy.
