Busyness Steals the Will of God for our lives

I haven't had a relaxing day for a long time.  My only obligation was soccer at 1130.  It was warm but the clouds came out just as the game started!

We also took Eevee to the dog park in Sandoval, which we might do again tonight.  I have been thinking all week (as I run around with a chicken with my head cut off) that God keeps pointing out busyness is the robber of life.  It steals our time.  How many people (or friends) never "have time to go to church", read the bible, join a bible study to learn God, take their children to the park (or their dog to the dog park)...this is life.  Not shopping, cleaning(yeah- I'm off the hook), obsessing about our looks, paying bills, grocery shopping, cleaning out emails, ...

2 Corinthians 10:5NIV--"we demolish arguments and every pretention that sets it self up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to God"

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world;but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God

Business robs of our time to be with those that matter, to be present when we are, to have patience for what we should have patience for...we are fooled into thinking so many things are so much more important than they are...When do we FEEL love? in our moments of peace.  If we never have them, we will never experience love.

But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.1 Corinthians  13:3

I want my life to be mine to be moments of having peace throwing a stick at the dog park, off we gow...
