Over the past few weeks I keep being reminded to focus on the important things instead of worrying about the urgent things.
Are you guilty of this?
Do you spend more time on social media instead of spending time with your family?
Are you stepping away from opportunities to build community and relationships instead of seizing them?
Do you keep yourself busy at all times of the day instead of taking moments to rest?
Do you focus on all the things instead of focusing on Him?
I am so guilty of this. SO GUILTY.
I use the busy-ness of my life as an excuse for not taking care of the most important things: my relationship with Jesus, spending time with my husband, building a community of friends.
We talked about this in our small group probably over a month ago, but the Lord is continuing to use it to wreck my heart.
“Let me do this just real quick!”
“I’ll finish it in a minute!”
“Hold on, I’m almost done!”
These are excuses I make on an (almost) daily basis.
I am slowly that resting at the feet of Jesus is more important than updating my Instagram feed.
I am being taught that spending quality time with my husband is more important than checking my blog stats.
I know, crazy.. right?
If you’re in the same boat as me, I want to encourage you to take some time this week and focus on the important things instead of worrying about the urgent things.
Oh, and I made you a free printable, in case you REALLY wanna be reminded!
Let me know if the links don’t work, trying google docs out and I’m not sure if I did it exactly right!
