Pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:16-18)
Create a daily blueprint (Habakkuk 2:2)
Asking myself how I want the end of the day to look will help keep me focused on daily tasks. I always use a to-do list consisting of no more than 5 things a day and it has been a successful plan.
Get quiet (Job 6:24)
In the quiet moments I hear God more than ever. This means not listening to the radio on my drive to work and turning the TV off while in bed to reflect on my day.
Avoid drama and Time Stealers: (1 Thessalonians 5:22)
For some reason I always seem to get caught up in drama. I think I have a sign on my forehead that states, “Come and tell me all of your problems, I have the solutions.” Instead of politely saying, “I understand” and removing myself from the situation, I feel the need to comfort and listen to others. This takes time away from what I should really focus on and subconsciously affects my mood for the rest of the day. My new rule is 3 minutes. I allow the individual a few minutes and if it is not leading to successful outcome or God centered conversation, I remove myself.
