From Chris’s Computer

This time of year is so busy! Everyone I have talked to has mentioned the busyness of this season. Graduation parties, ball games, and weddings are beginning to fill our calendars. It feels like the month of May is the busiest month of the year. While busyness tries to take over, it’s important to remember to give our attention and time to the most important areas. Even in the busyness, we must make sure we are spending time in prayer, reading the Bible, and with the Lord’s people.

Prayer is our way of including God in the busyness of life. We should never leave Him out of our plans. We need to be sure to bring God with us by talking to Him often and everywhere, even at the ballpark (1 Thess. 5:17).

We must also make sure we continue to mediate on God’s Word letting it guide us through the busyness. Throughout my life this has been easy for me to neglect. If this is true for you as well, let me encourage you to keep working at it, making it a priority. The simple decision to make God’s Word a priority can make a big difference. Check out Psalm 119 for motivation.

As life gets busy, it can be easy to neglect our church family. So, let’s be intentional and decide to make our church family a priority. One way we can do this is by adding VBS, camp, the gospel meeting, and all other summer actives to our personal calendars, right now, deciding they are the priority over everything else.

Life is crazy and if we are going to survive the craziness, we need the Lord’s help. Luckily, we have a God who listens, inspired Words to guide, and a loving church family. Let’s not neglect any of these assets.
