Who or What Matters Most?

How you spend your time shows what your priorities are. It may be hard to admit, but it is true. I am guilty of this on a daily basis. I fight myself every day! When I wake up I don’t want to get up and sometimes I don’t (depending if my kids have school or not). I will get up in the mornings with my kids, but when they are out of school sometimes I will not set an alarm or I will just shut it off when it does come on. I just sleep in and let my husband get up on his own and leave for work without really telling him bye. What does that say about me? I feel like it is saying that I value myself and my sleep more than I value him or spending time with him. I love my husband and other than God he is all that I truly have. Another major no, no that I do is jump up out of bed not even giving God much thought until my day is settled down and on some days that doesn’t even happen at all. I put sleep, eating, my husband and my kids before Him. Sometimes I put facebook and the news before Him to. What does that say about me? I value something more than I value God and well that is just wrong! I wouldn’t have all the things I have without Him. It is sad, but it is true. The relationships that are the most important in our lives sometimes take a back seat to ourselves. Well at least that is what I am seeing. Not everyone is like that. Satan wants to rip our families apart and he certainly doesn’t want us to spend time with God. Satan will do anything he can to destroy us “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”  (1 Peter 5:8) Our flesh only adds to what satan likes to throw at us. We are naturally selfish and in the “now” moment it feels good to be selfish. ”This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” (Galatians 5:16) Let’s look at things in a new way every day…  After we die what will matter? Will money matter? Will sleep and self-matter? Or will God and people matter? Of course God and people will matter because that is all we will have left. All the money we have earned all of the time we spend on making our house nice or all the time we spend in sleeping will no longer matter and we will have nothing to show of it. I know we need sleep, but we don’t need to sleep more than our bodies need we need to wake up and make the most of our relationship with God and others because in the end (or beginning) that is ALL that matters! Where are your priorities?
