“It’s Not A Priority or I Don’t Have Time”?

How often to you say to yourself or to others “I don’t have time”. Let me be the first to raise my hand on this one! I used to say this all the time (and some times I still do). 

Now, is it true that as women-our time is limited? Yes-we only have so many hours in the day. Most of us have a full time job-whether as a career or as a stay at home mom. Not to mention a family and social life we try to maintain. Oh, and as Christians, we have church related activities as well. 

So is it wrong to say “I don’t have time”? Not really. But I’d like to propose a different phrase for you to help you in your mindset and in your planning. 

How about instead of saying “I don’t have time”, say “It’s not a priority.”

The truth is that we do make time for the things are are important to us. Wouldn’t you agree?

We must leave the things that are not as important perhaps for a different time or day. This is really the wiser thing to do when we plan. 

Sister, I’d like to propose a challenge to you today to rephrase your thoughts on your limited time to “It’s a priority, or It’s not a priority”. This way, you can really see more clearly what’s more important to do first, second, third, etc.

Now with this said, I have some episodes on the podcast coming up in the next few weeks that will speak to the above, but more in terms of our times with God and in reading the bible. I’ll speak about our mindset on this matter and ways that can help you really have a strong and unshakeable relationship with God. So stay tuned sister. 

Until then, I wish you a “Fruitful February” full of LOVE and JOY each day.
