Remember to keep the main thing the main thing.
~E. K. Bailey~
My beloved Pastor, who is now deceased, used to share the above quote periodically with the members of his congregation. It was a reminder to us that no matter how busy our lives were, we had to keep our relationship with Jesus a priority.
This quote is a helpful reminder for me today because my life is very busy. I wear the roles of wife, mother, employee, breast cancer survivor, Christian author and Bible-teacher. At times I confess my relationship with God suffers because of all of the other roles I wear. Yet I know if I am to write with substance, power and conviction, I must keep my time with God a priority.
Aspiring writer, are you wearing a lot of life roles today? Whatever they may be, don’t forget to keep the main thing the main thing.
Sharing the journey,
Writer’s prayer: Father, I wear a lot of roles, but please help me to keep my relationship with you a priority, so I can write effectively for your kingdom. Amen.
