There are only 7 days in a week.
There are only 365 days in a year.
When you look forward to 2018 you have to ask yourself, what do I need to get rid of from 2017?
Ps 90:12 So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Your life can only take so much. If you push it too far, then something has to give.
- Your health.
- Your marriage.
- Your salvation.
- Your family and so on.
You need to look at your present life and ask yourself some hard questions.
- Do I need this in my life?
- Is this taking too much time?
- Do I have a bad habit that is stealing my time?
- Am I in a relationship that isn't good for me?
Here are a few priorities that you can embrace. This will help.
Jesus is first. Believe it or not. This will actually help you have more time for your life.
Others are next. Marriage is first. Then your kids. You're married to your spouse, not to your kids. They need both of you. So don't feel guilty if you make them wait while you take care of your relationship. Friends and family are essential. Then your business or career. As you already know. Every one of these wants first place in your life.
Yourself. This doesn't mean that you treat yourself without care and dignity. It says you should be selfish and put yourself before others. Selfless people are happier than selfish ones.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, help me to put your first, others next and myself last. AMEN
