Meditation Monday: Priorities

Seek the Lord. Ask Him for wisdom. Ask Him to direct your steps.
R-Review and receive God's priorities for our lives.
we will never know what we’re supposed to do with those hours if we don’t go to the place where God has given us our job description—in His Word—and find out what is the purpose of my life. What am I supposed to be doing with my life?
I-Take Inventory 
This requires that we stop and think about what our priorities really are and what our schedule really is like.
O-Order our schedule and activities according to God's priorities for our lives 
Order our schedule according to the priorities that we have discovered in God’s Word.
R- Resist the tyranny of the urgent
We need to learn to recognize the difference between what’s urgent and what’s important. 
I- Input, get input from other people
Ask your husband to help you with your list of responsibilities, to help prioritize that list? God gave your husband to you to be a source of protection, to help you from getting overly committed.
T-Take advantage of the time God gives you
Learn to redeem the time, or as the Scripture says, “to make the most of every opportunity.
I-Identify time robbers
Get rid of unnecessary clutter in our lives—simplify. And again, this isn’t something we do once for all. It’s something we need to do on a regular basis.
E-Experience this season and this moment fully
Fully experience, fully enter into whatever season, whatever moment God has put you in. 
S-Stay sensitive and surrendered to the Spirit of God
As we walk through our day, it’s so important that we stay sensitive and surrendered to the Spirit of God. Let God direct your day.
