Block out time to pray daily. This is different from your time praying as you go about your normal day. Intentional time in conversation with God allows you to release all issues to the only one who can truly do anything about them. Talking to and listening to God either by thinking on His word or allowing His spirit to speak to your heart should be bring peace and direction. This step is important because it gives God permission to organize your life one day and one moment at a time.
Spend time thinking about or writing scripture related to resting, order, peace and balance. Keep a journal of the verses so that you are able to easily find them. Time spent reflecting on Gods promises brings rest and a peace to your soul.
3. Limit Your Availability
Block out times for you and your family when you cannot be reached. Despite what our culture says, it is not rude, it is necessary. Also, block out time alone for just you and the Lord.
4. Be Purposeful With Your Time
Understanding that your time is really God’s times will help you be purposeful with it. Pray about everything you are asked to do before you say “yes”. Make sure that it lines up with God’s plan for you.
Plan days of NOTHING! This step goes hand in hand with numbers 1-4. It’s alright to NOT BE DOING SOMETHING ALL OF THE TIME. Time resting means time with the Lord and also getting enough sleep. The fastest way to become unbalanced is from lack of sleep. It’s okay to take a nap or go to bed early. Schedule rest time just as you’d schedule any other activity.
