How to Have More Time for the Important Things

"If you're serious about something, it has a fixed time. If you're earnest about getting something done and the phone rings, you ignore it.
The spiritual side of your life is not a hobby nor a luxury --it is your purpose of existence. When you are learning Scripture, or are in prayer, nothing else exists.
Your spiritual career should have at least equal priority to your worldly career."
- Tzvi Freeman

Wow, this really convicted me when I saw this come into my e-mail inbox. It really is true. We have time for what we MAKE time for. Crystal has also been posting on this; read her ideas here.

I did have a pretty good morning routine, but when the time changed I got all messed up. Now it is such a struggle for me to rise early, and I really do miss that time. Well, tomorrow's another day, and another chance for me to get it right! His mercies are new every morning!

Do you have any advice for prioritizing? Do you have a daily schedule? I'd love to hear about it!
