How to break the cycle of an overly busy life

August 17, 2012

“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Matthew 6:33

Some friends of mine were talking with me awhile back about how there’s so much pressure on them in their day-to-day lives. The alarm clock jolts them into action every morning; they get the kids off to school; they try to beat the traffic; and they work to meet those deadlines and return those emails and calls.

And then they come home exhausted, do some kind of evening activity, try to find time for the family before bed, and go to sleep dog-tired before another day of madness begins tomorrow. That’s the kind of life many people lead today. And it can be so disheartening to never really catch up—just trying to stay ahead each and every day.

So I warned my friends: beware of the barrenness of a busy life without God. There is nothing as miserable as success without God. There is no life as glum as one that is so caught up in self-pursuit without having time to know Jesus.

Maybe today, you resonate with that description of a life out of control. If so, maybe it’s time to make some tough—even drastic—cuts in your life. Maybe you need to find a different job, de-commit from some things, or take your kids out of some program so you can focus your family on Jesus. When you get your priorities aligned with God’s, you can break the crazy cycle of a life that’s too busy!

Get straight, biblical answers to questions our culture is asking!

Dear Friend,

A lot of people doubt the Bible has anything good to say – much less relevant answers to questions about things like same-sex marriage and abortion. But the truth is, the Bible contains the very words of God about these subjects and so much more.

That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular series on CD called ‘Straight Up.’

Packed with the truth of Scripture, ‘Straight Up will give you the tools you need to give a loving and compassionate response to our culture about issues such as:

  • Same-sex marriage
  • Abortion
  • Tolerance
  • God’s will
  • And much more!

Straight Up is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim truth to our truth-hungry world. So please request it when you give today. Thank you!
