I read a book this weekend that has really got me thinking about making the time for God’s priorities…not my own! So today’s episode is revolving around that theme.

Re-prioritizing our priorities
Here’s the quote that was so impactful for me this weekend:
“We can accomplish everything God has ordained for us to do in this life. Hint: It’s probably not half of what’s on your to-do list.)” – Shopping for Time
This is very convicting to me to be thinking about God’s plan and timing, not MY OWN! If I really believe God is in control, which I do, then I also know he has put me in these circumstances right here today for a purpose.
He is the one who gave me five kids in four years. And while I am so thankful for my family, there are still days that are tough and chaotic. And if I’m honest, I too often push my own to-do list instead of stopping to remember HIS to-do list. Do you ever do this?
God is going to give me the exact right amount of minutes I need in my life to accomplish HIS will for me. This is especially helpful for me to remember in this season of life that I am in. I think that God has given me some big dreams and it can feel frustrating to not start on them.
But I need to trust that if God is really calling me to this, then he will provide the time if I am seeking his priorities.
