A person said that she thought she needed to make God a priority in her life, ahead of her marriage, family and job. Wow! I don't think so much about seriously changing my life to prioritize God. I think rather of making God the first thing in my day, as a way of making God be first. I wake up a few minutes earlier than my other commitments demand, and I pray. It does not have to be any specific amount of time. God and I are not on the clock. The point is, that I gave up something, sleep, in this case, to spend time in the God relationship. If you are starting out, then don't overdose early on. Just a few minutes, maybe ten or twelve, to get into the habit. Allow the God hunger to develop and carry you along. Remember, God is in this process with you. I hear about people who burn out because they treat this meditation/prayer time like someone who decides to exercise. They join a gym on January 2. They go everyday for about six weeks. They neglect family, job, and other responsibilities. Their life becomes crazy. By mid-February they have left the club and given up exercise. Be good to yourself and God. Start small. Go easy. The journey is one small step at a time.
