How do you prioritize everything that you’ve got going on? Do you ever feel like there’s never enough time in the day?

Yes, sometimes I really do struggle with how quickly time runs out each day. I try to focus on the Lord and His Word and figure out the few things in life He really wants me to do. I say no to 98% of invitations, and regularly decline things I really wish I could do. I’ve decided that if I am going to have time to write I will have to fight for it. Every day, including this one, offers me a hundred distractions, not just bad things, but good things. I tell myself that I must say no to the vast majority of good things that I might be able to say yes to those very few things God really has for me. Like Mary and Martha in Luke 10, and Jesus saying “Few things are necessary, really only one. Mary has chosen the better portion and it will not be taken from her.”
