It's crazy how it is so easy to get wrapped up in life. I love to pack my days full with work, school, friends, reality tv, blogging, social media, etc. Yet I sometimes can't even manage to say a 15 minute prayer without falling asleep before I can say amen. I started this page on my blog not only as a sharing tool for all of you but also as an accountability tool for myself. I have had so much to write and say about what I've learned but I couldn't "find the time." Big lie to myself.
It may sound as if I am beating myself up... well I am LOL. I just found out that I missed a very important email with a great opportunity and I started to pray and ask God that if it is his will that it could possibly work itself out in my favor. I stopped myself mid prayer because I realized it was the first time I had prayed all day and of course it was me asking something of Him. From what I have learned, a relationship with God is a two way street. In Him you can do all but that is not without effort on your part.
At work, I am organizing a bi-weekly newsletter for all of the interns where we can showcase our writing and our jobs and ultimately let upper management get to know us all a little better.. (all while putting faces to the names) #networking. I asked one of my fellow coworkers to write an article on time management, something we could all use more advice on. As I was editing it today, one of her tips was so simple yet so profound. Write down your tasks in a planner and actually block out the time.... I mean HELLOOOO why didn't I think of that?! I usually buy the planners that just have the month calendars so I am going to buy one tomorrow that counts day by day; hour by hour. I am going to "block out" my time with God, that way I cannot be convinced by the enemy that I am too busy. That way I do not find myself mid prayer feeling extremely selfish or privileged.
Well that is enough self shaming and lessons learned for one night HAHA! I hope you all have a blessed weekend!
