Thinking Thursday: Can You Be Too Busy For God?

This week has been manic. Absolutely packed. This post is evidence of that, because this is Thinking Thursday, and today is Friday. I just haven’t had time. In fact I haven’t had time for a lot of things.

Don’t get me wrong, all the things I had to do this week were good things – well, except the emergency trip to the dentist, but it turned out to be a good thing. It was just unfortunate that everything came at once. And, like the stubborn mule I am, I wouldn’t put anything off. I must do it all as scheduled.

But there are some things not on the schedule, because I do them every day. Er, maybe I should say, I am supposed to do them every day. Which is exactly my point. Even though my Christian faith is important to me, my prayer and Bible time get too easily pushed to one side.

I spent some time this afternoon with a Christian friend who, when asked how he found time for his Christianity, said it wasn’t a valid question, because his Christianity was interwoven with his whole life. That gave me a lot to think about. How about you?

About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
