The Game Plan

posted by rbaragona

The days get so busy. I have to make “To Do” lists to get anything done it seems. I have to put “make  a To Do list” on my To Do list.  I know that everyone is busy. Busy, Busy, Busy.  I really dislike that word right now. So it really isn’t a surprise that I often put my faith and worship far down on that  list of things to do.  It’s always easier to get those tangible items crossed off my list in comparison to the items like ” trust God today”, or ” forgive others as the Lord forgave you today”.  How can I honestly cross that off my list? Thus, I typically tackle my laundry first.  When thinking about what to write in this blog, I realized that I struggled to even make time for THINKING about my faith. Now, this is messed up.  How can I let all the trivial, day-to-day tasks take priority over my relationship with God?  I can think of about 15 Bible versus that advise against doing just that.  So, here is the game plan.  My game plan, anyway. In effort to get my priorities straight, I need to start each day off in the right frame of mind. Tomorrow morning I am going to wake up 15 minutes earlier than I normally get up. Sounds CRAZY, right? I know, I can cry about the lack of sleep later, no time right now.  ;) With those 15 extra minutes, I plan to read the Bible. I will sit, read, think, pray, and absorb (hopefully!).  So that’s all for now. That’s a realistic change I can make to my day in effort to cut out the busy madness and focus on growing more in love with Christ each day.  I’ll let you know how it goes….

Losing your Mask
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvuB0ZPCnNE[/youtube]] I was driving earlier this week and Casting Crown's Stained Glass Masquerade started playing on my Ipod. I started to sing along, and got to thinking about the lyrics. Growing up I loved Stained Glass, especially one of the stained cl

Love
This picture is from a sunrise in my backyard.  My fiance had just spent the night taking care of me when I was sick and he was still awake when the sun started to rise.   I don't know why this image has been stuck in my head for this past week.  Just something about it is so hopeful that I clin

I'll Pray for You
This week in one of my classes we were talking about why we punish criminals. As a class we came up with a list of reasons that are often cited for the various punishments criminals are sentenced to. Part of the class reading for that week was four articles written by four Christian men on Retributi

Jesus as My Boyfriend
So, I think I should start with a disclaimer that I'm a Chemistry teacher - so English, not really my thing, and please excuse the many typos/grammar mistakes I am sure to make throughout this journey. Alrighty, recently my quiet times have been completely overwhelmed with how much I desire a bo
