I can go no further down the road of my responsibilities without stopping to spend time in prayer and meditation. God has been faithful to me. I must be dependent on Him.
I find that when I am not making myself depend on Him that He is making me depend on Him. The latter is the more painful of the two that bring me to the same place.
And all things depend on Him. He is trustworthy. I can only live well in this life when I conform to this truth.
I waste time when I spend it on “responsibilities” to the detriment of time in prayer and meditation on God’s Word. When the shallow consumes the eternal, there is little hope of joy or any spiritual success.
I am best able to handle everything the more I am conformed to the image of Christ.
In all things and in all ways I must pursue the image of Christ being revealed in me.
