Keeping God a Priority

Keeping God a Priority
Last fall I found myself struggling to keep God as my priority. I didn’t have the passion of pursuit that I wanted and needed. When this happens, and it does more often than I would like, then I have to be very intentional to turn things around.

We look to the right or to the left and often find ourselves attempting to set standards to which we should meet, or even, rise above accordingly.
