Too busy for God? Well, of course I’m not. But, yet I have to admit, I really have been as of late. It has been like living inside a whirlwind launching two books in two months as well as writing full time as a freelance writer, plus traveling to speak and market my books, plus planning a conference for the women of my church. All are blessings from God – I know that. And, whenever I catch my breath, I shoot a thank you prayer to Him.
Today My Loving Lord, in his subtle way, hit me between the eyes with the truth. I was dashing around setting up for a meeting as one of the members of this club was trying to speak with me about something very important to her. My mind was absorbing only a quarter of what she said. Plus, my own son had come with me and I left him to introduce himself around to everyone. I felt like the push-me pull-you from Dr. Doolittle. Later, I stopped and apologized to them both.
That is when it hit me. I needed to apologize to my Heavenly Father. I had gotten out of the routine of giving Him my undivided attention so I could be a conduit for His glory. I’ve been so busy writing to spread His Truth, helping other Christian writers, earning a living and doing my church work, that somewhere along the way He was shoved to the back burner.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness . . .
Perhaps my day would seem less as if it was lived in a whirlwind if I remembered to spend more time with the One who calms storms. Father forgive me.
