I have been CRAZY, CRAZY, CRAZY busy lately. My writing has fallen off, I am scattered, and my exercise has taken a bit of a back seat. Between an ankle injury, walking pneumonia, work, kids, Christ Walk presentations, and trips; I have not exactly been the poster child for work/life balance. My body has been conspiring against me to slow down and I am not very interested in listening.
CRAZY busy also leads to me putting God on my back burner. Don’t get me wrong, God is always with me; God it always patient; and I know God will always be there, but I have been the bad friend. I have not been the one holding up our end of the relationship. I have been saying, “hold on just one more minute” in our relationship. If God were anyone but God, I think God would have left me a long time ago because if I treated people the way I treat God sometimes, they wouldn’t put up with me either.
I have done this before. If you are honest, you probably have done this too. When life takes over, you say, “wait a minute, I’ll get back to you.” When I am CRAZY busy, I become CRAZY Anna. I start making CRAZY decisions. I don’t put God first in my life and therefore, I do not make Godly decisions when I’ve told God: “wait a minute.”
I am one of those people that need to stick to the training plan. I need to stick with my commitment to God, because neither training, nor being a Christian comes as second nature. If it’s not first in my mind, first in my agenda or first in my life, then I will push it to the back burner. And when the things I care about most in my life get pushed to the back burner, I regret it every time. I have priorities in my life: God, Family, and Health. Even when CRAZY life happens, we need to make sure the priorities remain up front, not pushed to the back.
