Do My Priorities Need To Be Re-Examined?

Gratitude list. What are you thankful for?Please contact us if you have any questions or comments or would like some encouragement?

My priorities will determine what I strive after. Make your list of your value and keep them a priority. Taking an inventory of where you are will help you get to where you are going more efficiently. When I take the time to get my priorities in line, my life is so much better because of taking the time to do so!

There is an expression I hear that I agree with fully, which is if you do not stand for something, you will fall for anything. We all need to be disciplined to examine our lives. My former pastor Ron Sauer had is own definition of what discipline way, “Discipline is doing what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, when it needs to be done, no matter how I feel about it.” That quote of his stuck in my mind and has influenced me. ~ Bill Greguska


Matthew 6:33  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.







How To Determine My Priorities?



How To List Your Priorities

On my walk down to Lake Michigan today, I listed my priorities and things I value. I encourage you to take the time to do the same thing.  You will discover that you spend your time compared to how you would like to spend it you would want to spend your time. You will become aware of your values and how you waste your valuable time with things that do not matter and keep you from your real goals in life. It will also reinforce the good things you are doing and encourage you to keep them going!
