A wonderful place to view while praying!
To Do List or Time With The Father?
By Alena Tauriainen
I’m sitting in my home and it’s blissfully quiet with Jesus Culture playing on Youtube.
Puts me in the lap of my Father. Every. Time.
I started the day with this humungous un-manageable list of things to do.
Seriously, I set myself up for failure.
As I busily typed and looked at the clock, I felt myself slipping into a black hole of un-fulfilled responsibilities. I couldn’t work fast enough.
In the back of my head I knew I hadn’t taken time to pray with My Father. But my soul -- the human side kept saying you have soooo much to do.
But really, how much was I getting done without praying? What’s the use of trudging through when I have no peace? The black hole was getting wider and deeper.
Now, I’ve never been the brightest fish in the pond, but hey, even I knew I was getting nowhere.
I reverted to what I truly know. Time in Prayer and Worship would be so much better.
I spent time at the feet of My Father.
For me, Prayer + Worship = Peace.
The difference? My To Do list is still there, the pile just as high.
After time with My Father, peace and love are now my partners as I step out to handle the responsibilities for the day.
What about you? What do you do when the responsibilities of life pull at you? How do you find time to sit at the feet of The Father?
