Finding Time

We are blessed to have 168 hours in a week. We know during that span of time many jobs, chores, and hurdles require our attention. We know that Matthew 6:33 tells us to “seek first the kingdom of God.” We know the benefit of photo-1433650552684-d4004a945d6cstudying God’s word and how we are strengthened spiritually & emotionally when we read & study the Bible. The challenge is finding time to grow spiritually and grow closer to God in a world that requires so much of us. I struggle with this challenge too. We can move closer to God as we invest our time in reading & praying. When I feel I am being tested by the world, I read what Paul wrote in Romans 5:1, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:” When we begin to feel overwhelmed with life, we can read & find peace in the midst of our day. Life is demanding at best, let’s make sure we are spending time studying in God’s Word.
