Life is a balancing act. As I balance schoolwork, tests, volleyball, piano, clarinet, percussion, 4H, and most importantly, reading the Bible and focusing on God, this phrase makes much more sense than it did when I was younger. And I only get busier as I get older.
So I’ve got to find a way to balance school with extracurricular activities with God. I have already written a blog post about it (see Get Rid of Your Worries in 3 Easy Steps!), so of course I can use that, and I can also pray for help.
The most important thing I NEED to make time for is, of course, God. Praying, reading the Bible, and reading devotions are the things I do on a regular basis to strengthen my faith.
So I ask you this: Are YOU making time for God in your everyday balancing-act-of-a-life?
One really interesting thing I learned yesterday in Sunday school is how prayers should go.
This is taken straight from the Bible, Matthew 6:9-13.
Pray like this:
Our Father in heaven,
may your name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us today the food we need,
and forgive us our sins,
as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation,
but rescue us from the evil one.
So prayers go in this format:
Praise God/Glorify God/ Thank Him
Ask for what you need
Praise God/Glorify God/ Thank Him again
That is just as it is in the Lord’s prayer.
So no matter how busy you are, ALWAYS make time for God.
