Hey guys! I wanted to address something that I struggle with on a daily basis. I struggle with maintaining balance in my schedule and finding time to fit it all in. I’m guilty of frequently scheduling more then I have time for! Over-scheduling is literally me and I am sure it can apply to your life as well. I want to do everything! I am a full-time student, I work two jobs, I try to fit in a social life, I have hobbies and it might not sound like much but it’s a lot to fit in every week.
A few weeks ago someone asked me how my week was going and I said “I’m going day by day lol” and I’m sure many of you have had that kind of week before. I tried to pack in everything, but I didn’t fit it all in. I realized I need to set goals for my week of what I want and need to accomplish. Then I need to prioritize what’s most important. I’ve also made efforts to stay more organized because the busier I get the messier I get! lol But that’s a whole other blog post! lol
Having a quiet time each day is a priority for me. But when my schedule gets crazy, my quiet time seems to get pushed to the side as school and work take over. I realized I need to prioritize my goals and be intentional in how I spend my day. I need to control my schedule and not let my schedule control me. We make time for things that we think are important and I want God to be at the top of my priority list!
In my quiet time this week Rachael Milner in “Dear College Girls” says “Sometimes we feel as if God is not speaking to us, but in reality, we are not making any time to listen.” Is that not true or what!! God is trying to reach every single one of us through his word. It’s crazy to think that I miss what God has for me because I’m too busy to listen. I admit that I’m not perfect with my quiet time, but my goal is to be more intentional with that time. I pray that I can be consistent with my time and be patient and let God show me the plans he has for me. I don’t want to miss out on all God has for me because I didn’t take the time to listen!
What has God put on your heart this week??
