It’s so easy to get caught up in life. You get so busy with this, that, and the other and you just don’t know what to do. It seems like the natural thing to do when we get stressed is just push God away first and get to him when we can, which most of the time doesn’t even end up happening.

We let the less important "things" take over our lives instead of turning to the most important. Why is that though? Why do we push away the one who can help us the most, the one who knows us best and the one who is always there waiting for us to call for help?

Most of us have planners that keep up with our agenda day by day and even hour by hour, but I bet the majority of us don’t have a place in there that we are scheduled to devote our time to God, myself included. I still haven’t figured out why though.

Why do I feel the need to take on so many tasks, stressing myself out, trying to do it all alone, when He is right beside me the whole time? It's like deep down inside I know I should at least be starting and ending my day with Him, but I get so busy trying to figure out my life, rather than talking to him and just letting it all fall into place.

It seems like taking the time to pray and talk to God is kinda like making yourself go workout. You know you need to, but you try to find so many other things to do and resort back to that as your last option. In the end though, after you get done running or working out, you feel so much better and end up being glad you did it. Somedays I feel like that’s how it is making time for God.

All it takes is that one time to just do it and from then on out just make it a habit, but of course not because you have to...but because you want to. That's how our relationship should be with God. He should be our go-to guy, our best friend, and the person we tell everything to. After all, he does know us like no other.

While I am not by any means perfect, I have realized making time for Him will only benefit you in the long run. It will help you in so many ways, encourage you, and make you stronger as a person and as a Christian. The Lord is there and is waiting for you. All you have to do is call and he will answer.

Never forget:

God is never too busy to listen, so don’t be too busy to talk to him.

Don’t find time for Him every day, make time for him everyday.

If you make time with God your first priority, everything else will fall in place.
