Not Enough Hours?
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises
to the Most High. It is good to proclaim your unfailing love
in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening.
Psalm 92:1-2 NLT

If you ever find that you’re simply “too busy” for a daily chat with your Father in heaven, it’s time to take a long, hard look at your priorities and your values. Each day has 1,440 minutes—do you value your relationship with God enough to spend a few of those minutes with Him? He deserves that much of your time and more—is He receiving it from you? Hopefully so.

As you consider your plans for the day ahead, here’s a tip: organize your life around this simple principle: “God first.” When you place your Creator where He belongs—at the very center of your day and your life—the rest of your priorities will fall into place.

A person with no devotional life generally struggles with faith and obedience. - Charles Stanley, 100 Days of Prayer

This day’s bustle and hurly-burly would too often and too soon call us away from Jesus’ feet. These distractions must be immediately dismissed, or we shall know only the “barrenness of busyness.” - A. W. Tozer

The busier we are, the easier it is to worry, the greater the temptation to worry, the greater the need to be alone with God. - Charles Stanley

There is an enormous power in little things to distract our attention from God. - Oswald Chambers

Today’s Prayer
Dear Lord, every day of my life is a journey with You. I will take time today to think, to pray, and to study Your Word. Guide my steps, Father, and keep me mindful that today offers yet another opportunity to celebrate Your blessings, Your love, and Your Son.
Amen
