But make sure that you don’t
get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day
obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to
God. Romans 13:11 (TM)
I don’t believe there is one person who doesn’t have enough "day-by-day" obligations to distract us from God. That’s why putting God on your "to-do" list next to the groceries, the kids’ activities, and that client meeting doesn’t work. He’ll never make it up the list past all of the daily fires and responsibilities.
Don’t let God be an item on your to-do list. Let Him be the paper on which you write the list. He should be behind everything that you do and present in every activity, every task, every meeting, every relationship, and every thought.
It’s the difference between church being ‘a good thing to do‘ and Jesus being Lord and master of your life.
