Our efforts fail when we allow life to get so busy.  Pray that you don’t become sidetracked by life.  We find that our time is more pressed than ever and so is everyone else around us.  Time flies and so does opportunities.  We think we are promised extra time and we put things off that we should not.  Sometimes I think Satan main tool in pulling us away from where we need to be is life in general.  Work, extra curricular activities, sports, etc..  These things are not bad but we have to do them through Christ and have a balance.

“in all your ways submit to him,
 and he will make your paths straight.”
Proverbs 3:6
