Man, these last few weeks have been especially crazy for me. Speaking at funerals, traveling, normal Sunday speaking, and our Man Laws just to start. Add on top of that baseball and Debby’s birthday (we’re having a surprise party for her tonight, don’t tell), really make me scrape every minute out of a day.
I normally am up between 4:30 and 5:00 to spend some time with God before the day starts. When I get as busy as I have been these last weeks, I am tempted to work through those times. I have found that I am so much more effective if I continue to protect that time as best as I can. I’m not perfect at it, but strive to truly hear from God every morning, especially when I am speaking frequently. God has a way of multiplying my time and creativity.
Another place I am tempted to cut corners is my exercise. Then my body feels bad, my brain slows down, and I am more worthless than usual. I try to at least get some minimal exercise, even if it is only running 20-30 miles (smile).
Keep your priorities, spend time with God, your family, and take care of your health. If you don’t, then you’ll be laid up for a long time.
Don’t miss Sunday, as we conclude our Life In Suburbia series. I truly am sad to see this series end!
