Who's on First?

It's hard to believe that there is only a week of January left. So....How are those New Year's "resolutions" going?  My New Year's "goals" are starting a bit late this year--mostly because i was sick for about 2 1/2 weeks. I became pretty frustrated during this time of nesting & resting on the couch. Mainly because i had things planned for this time period. However, i was reminded of how to make God laugh....tell Him your plans. Life is like that. Isn't it?
But i am so thankful that God is a God of new beginnings. Have you ever noticed that we can always start over? Each day is a new beginning for us. A chance to start over, every day. The key is to know where to start.
"But seek first His kingdom & His righteousness, & all these things will be given to you as well."
Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

God wants to do amazing things in  our lives. He even tells us:

" 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you & not to harm you, plans to give you hope & a future.' "
Jeremiah 29:11
So why wouldn't we want to give Him first place in everything. Especially the new beginning of each day that He gives us. Before we jump into all the activities of our day, seek Him first. Don't get caught up in the business of life, before you spend time with our Father.
When i put God in first place in my life, i know that i become more obedient. I know what's right for me to do, or say,.....or be. So, who's in first place in your life?
