On this first day of the year
On this first day of 2012, I decided to read the Word of God first. It has been a while since I sought God first in the morning. I’ve been waking up in a hurry, dressing up as quickly as possible so I don’t waste any minute of the morning, and still, time is not enough.
Sometimes it even feels as if my days are fleeing from me. Ever since I came to São Paulo, life has been faster, less organized and somewhat neurotic. The traffic here is terrible and the air pollution makes me feel sick sometimes. But this is nothing compared to the time, which for some reason seems to be constantly running away from me.
Yesterday, when we were driving home after a wonderful night vigil in our church, my husband and I talked about our goals and objectives for this New Year. We tried to align them correctly, but I’ll be sincere with you, I felt even more confused! And that’s when the word ‘organization’ came to mind.
I need to organize myself. I’ve always been very organized (so they say) but with all the new moves we’ve made in our lives, I’ve been lacking this very basic need to get anything done. That’s why my goals seem too much for the life I now have.
And now, what am I going to do? I lack organization and I don’t even know where to start!
That’s when I woke up this morning and decided that the first thing I’ll do every day this year is to read the Word of God. He will give me direction where to start, give me wisdom on how to start, and will help me start.
I suggest you do the same. If you do not have a Bible, read it on the Internet. The Word of God is now everywhere; all you need is the will to know it. Wake up early, open your Bible and read slowly, thinking of every written word. With meditation, revelations come to light – you’ll see!
And to pay back time for constantly playing around with me, this year I’ll add the book and chapter I’m reading to every post plus one or more pictures of that day in my life (be it relevant to the blog post or not). Let the war against time begin!
