Name what you think should be your first 5 priorities in life? Then order those priorities the way they actually are at present in your own life. Do they match up? Why or why not? If needed, what is one thing that you can do today that will help your two lists match up?

I am back from vacation, and so I can think a little more about the questions I ask each week. I am finding a pattern here; a lot of my questions seem to come from situations in my life where I was in sin. UGH, but actually I am very thankful because I have learned so much from God because of my past sins and struggles.

About four years ago, my husband and I were having one of those in-depth conversations that couples sometimes have. If I remember correctly, this conversation was a calm one, and not one of those heat of the moment conversations that spur from a difference of opinion (that makes it sound so much nicer, huh?). We were talking about priorities, and I asked my husband what he thought my priorities were. Boy, did I open up a can of worms. He replied that he felt like he was about number 7 on my list of priorities. WHAT? I don’t even have 7 things on my priority list. I could go on and give you more of the story, but I will just end here by saying that my husband’s answer was a wake up call for me, and very soon God would change our circumstances so that this priority problem would undergo massive reconstruction. Simply put, God helped me work on and get my priorities in order. I still struggle at times with keeping my priorities in the right order, but I would not feel as afraid to ask my husband that same question again today.

Blessings all, and I hope that today’s question may be used as a wake-up call for you if you need it, or if you are doing well with your priorities at present, I encourage you to keep pressing on in your journey.

Priorities?! I am not going to ask him today, but my husband probably feels that way right now. Cindi

I have to admit that this was a bit of a challange to answer. And even after posting on it many other thoughts keep coming to mind. As always, I love this challange and opportunity to grow in the Lord.
