Christian Life: Top Priority

Today's post is short and sweet.  I want to encourage you to keep loving and obeying God your top priority.  There are so many things that compete for that place in our lives; job, friends, family, hobbies, ministry, health, and much more.  However, when we have God at the very center of our lives and He is top priority, then everything else comes together.  Sometimes we get very overwhelmed and we feel pulled in so many directions.  When I feel overwhelmed, I take it as a sign that I need to pull back and check my priorities.  When I do, sure enough, I have them out of whack and usually I am busy doing a lot of things God didn't call me to do.  So, if on this Monday, you have that dreaded "I've had it" feeling; stop and say a prayer.  Ask God to give you peace and to reveal the priorities of your heart.

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.  Matthew 6:33 NLT

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.  Mark 12:30 NLT
