I am sometimes guilty of not spending enough time with the Lord, especially when I have a lot of things to do. And I only remember to stop and seek him out when I find that I’m already running on empty — I’m sluggish and irritable, and my joy is drained. During the busy months that led to the launching of my website, Swordsman of the Word, there had been many instances of this.
I don’t know how original I am, but I’ve always had this principle that when I’m building something, I need first to establish the foundations as soon as possible, and at a great cost, usually to myself (late nights, eye strain, fatigue, lack of exercise). When that is done, I can then proceed with the work in a reasonable, healthy, and even leisurely manner. I picture it as building a tower: the foundations I need to build ASAP (can’t do anything else until this is done), and the superstructures for the rest of my life (or something like that).
