One fundamental truth I firmly believe and practice daily is keeping God the center of my life. When I do that, I’m more calm, at peace, and balanced. The crazier my life gets, the more I need God at its center.
My life can get insane. I have two young boys, a full-time job, and a husband who has recently started a business. Aah!! Do I need God or what? There are days when I’m just not sure how I’m going to get it all accomplished.
However, when I focus on keeping God at the center of my life, I am:
More at peace
A better parent
A better wife
A better friend
A better daughter
A better employee
A better co-worker
A better boss
A better me
Without God, I am selfish in all of those things and at peace with none of them.
I can’t promise God will answer all your prayers, but I can promise that you will develop a sense of peace that you haven’t experienced before. It’s something you have to practice daily and stay focused on. Sure, I am a good, decent person without God. But, I am all that he’s designed me to be when I keep him at the center of my life.
