A.W. Tozer's The Pursuit of God was one of the first books I read that really seemed to make an impact on my faith. I devoured it quickly, looking up words I wasn't familiar with, underlining favorite passages, and making notes in the margin. How easily I forget that my life is a pursuit of the one who made me, loves me, and wants to make me more like Him!
That brings me immense joy and comfort during a time I often feel exhausted and like my busy schedule might overtake me at any moment! Somehow, knowing God is near also allows me to take a step back and focus on the little moments that could easily pass me by‐playing and pretending with Lorelei, laughing and joking with Jordan, savoring the conversation of people I don't often see or get to talk with. It may be popularly espoused within Christian circles, but I truly do find that when my priority is first and foremost my relationship with God, everything else has a way of coming together underneath the umbrella of His grace.
How do you combat the hectic schedules and endless to-do lists? Does it get better as you grow older or do we just gain more wisdom to cope with the craziness? I hope you're finding God to be near, even in the most chaotic of moments!
