I have always heard of setting goals and staying focused on them. Once, I even had a man remind me of the "List"on Priorities;
The 1st statement to make about this is that the man himself could quote this but was challenged when it came to following any part of that list. Knowing he could quote it, means, at some time in his life it might become real to him. He could crush any family member at any moment if they did not come into like thinking with him. So having words come from your mouth isn't always proof that you know something. Walk it out. Be Christ to your family members, your way is not the only way, it is just a way. What you are most pre-occupied with, will show you your list. Take it easy on yourself when you find out He is not 1st on the list and just start setting goals to talk to Him. Set your reminder on your cell phone, must talk to God for # minutes this afternoon. Just keep going, every person has a goal seeking system. Whatever he sets his eye upon, his entire person (heart, attitudes, emotions, arms, legs, mind, thought, etc.) will fall into line to seek out and achieve that goal. Listen to your words and they will tell you what is primary in your life. Is your conversation filled with truth, justice and concern for building quality relationships in your life? What is in the heart will come out of the mouth. Watch how you respond when you feel someone has cheated you. What is more important, the money or the relationship? Get God onto the top of the list. Diligently guard your goals. Invest your life into relationships and ye shall live and not become a faucet. Don't be drained, keep Him 1st, and all else will follow.
Do you really enjoy your life? Perhaps you should re-examine your primary goal. Love Pastor Cindi
